Murtha: U.S. doomed to defeat

Rep. John P. MurthaS.A. Miller reports
“Look at all the people that have been displaced, all the [lost] oil production, unemployment, all those type of things,” said Rep. John P. Murtha, chairman of Appropriations defense subcommittee. “We can’t win militarily.”\ \ \ The Pennsylvania Democrat conceded violence was down dramatically and some normalcy restored on Iraq’s streets, but he said U.S. victory remains unattainable as long as Baghdad fails to pass national reconciliation laws.\ \ \ “To change the political law, it doesn’t seem to me you need the military stability,” Mr. Murtha told reporters on Capitol Hill.

Isn’t it funny that when the military situation is improving far more than anyone could have anticipated, Murtha’s suddenly decided it’s entirely irrelevant?

This week, around our Thanksgiving tables, there will be two families: One who say they support the troops, and they do, but they have sacrificed very little. They haven’t had their taxes raised, they haven’t been drafted, and they don’t really participate in the war. The other are military families who have husbands and wives, sons and daughters, mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters in the war theater. It’s them who shoulder the burden of the President’s Iraq policy. America owes them our thanks in this Thanksgiving weekend.

So having your taxes raised somehow makes your support for the war more special? All that does is give Jack more of everyone else’s money to play with. To call him “contemptible” is to define that word down.
