Dems in Congress fail our troops and put them in harms way!
The Republicans put forth a bill to fund the War in Iraq without any strings attached. It was defeated by the Democrats. The Democrats put forth a bill to fund the Iraq War with strings attached, one being the troops pull out by next December. Subsequently, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. pushed for the added strings.
Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif, said this week that if Congress cannot pass legislation that ties war money to troop withdrawals, they would not send President Bush a bill this year.
WARNING: If you are offended by strong language, stop here!!
What the hell is wrong with these people? Al-Qaida and the Taliban must be singing praises to Allah!! To begin with, they are affecting the safety and welfare of our troops and our nation’s ability to defend itself in a time of War. Those a$$holes are crazy! They ought to be charged with complicity in the death of every soldier that results from their negligent political pandering!! As far as I am concerned they are all guilty of aiding and abetting the enemy and the b@$t@rd$ ought to be charged with treason during a time of war.
The Democrats say that Bush and the DOD will have to juggle money from the DOD funds. However, that will be a problem of enormous consequences:
Pentagon chief Robert Gates warned on Thursday that without the money, he would shortly order plans to lay off civilian employees, terminate contracts and cut base operations.
The DOD funds are allocated. Taking funds from their budget will greatly impair our military if base operations are cut. Certainly it will affect military families already burdened . To make matters worse, this will put over 100,000 people out of work at Christmas time. It will affect countless military families at Christmas time. And, it will affect the ability to provide needed materials and supplies for our troops.
This comes at a time when the necessary equipment for our troops is finally beginning to arrive in the field that they need to survive and destroy the IEDs and other explosive devices that are killing most of our troops. Haven’t our troops suffered enough because of the political escapades of the socialists element trying to take over our government and our country?
What I want to know is this, what is wrong with mainstream America that they can’t see what the hell is happening right here at home under their very noses? Have we as a nation really become that lazy and complacent that we refuse to see we are in serious trouble from two very real enemies, radical Islamics and Socialists, who both want to destroy our freedoms and our Democracy. Are we going to just sit back on our lazy @$$e$ and do nothing.
Patrick Henry said, “give me liberty or give me death!”
Were he alive today he would hang his head in shame. I found a quote this week. I just can’t remember where. If anyone can tell me the source I’ll give proper credit. But,the quote is so profound, I simply had to use it here:
I leave you with this quote from General Giap of the Vietnam military and I urge all Americans to learn from history and take heed:
“What we still don’t understand is why you Americans stopped the bombing of Hanoi! You had us on the ropes. If you pressed us a little harder, just for another day or two, we were ready to surrender! It was the same at the battles of TET. You defeated us! We knew it, and we thought you knew it. But we were elated to notice your media were definitely helping us. They were causing more disruption in America than we could in the battlefields. We were ready to surrender. You had won!”
It is time, now to say loud and clear, “NOT AGAIN! NEVER AGAIN! We will not abandon our troops again!!!”
