Democrat Harry Reid, be a man and tell the military to their faces "this war is lost"

As reported by Virginia Virtucon, democrat Senator Harry Reid proclaimed, “this war is lost.” Be a man, Harry Reid. Go to Iraq, walk up to one of those soldiers or Marines face-to-face, and tell them this war is lost.

I have a really good friend who is a Staff Sergeant in the Army would certainly disagree with Sen. Reid.

My friend's disagreement would be more forceful than respectful, that I can assure you.

WELL SAID! The war is definately not lost! We owe so much to those who have dedicated their lives to protect americans and their rights as given by God.

Yet as Lincoln said,
"Fondly do we hope, fervently do we pray, that this mighty scourge of war may speedily pass away. Yet, if God wills that it continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsman's two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said "the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether."

Actually, I am pretty sure they(troops on the ground) know it is lost. Like the five 4 star generals who refused the war czar position.

The troops on the ground are tired of fighting to protect people who hate them and mainly want to kill each other.

The only people who are gung ho about this war, which by the way is a breeding ground for terrorists, are the wealthy elite republican chicken hawks, who either never served(Rove) or served in priveleged, protected no risk positions (W. Bush). i don't count McCain because I think he is nuts.

Westend Ed, have you talked with any of the troops and asked their opinion?

I have talked with them and they say this mission CAN BE WON if their hands are untied and they are allowed to actually fight a war!

The politically correct society we live in is not appropriate for those in Iraq.

Next time you see someone in uniform why don't you walk up to him/her and ask how they feel about the war? You may be surprised because most of our military folks believe in what they are doing and are dedicated to protecting Americans here at home.

In what capacity did YOU serve in the military? You seem so quick to judge others.

What about Kerry who put himself in for three purple hearts for scratches received in battle ... and then asked for the removal from the war zone? What about Ted Kennedy ... he didn't serve. What about James Carville (since you lumped Karl Rove in there)?

Do you consider Attorney General Bob McDonnell a "country club" Republican? His daughter Jeannine spent a year in Iraq. The AG himself spent over 20 years in the Army. President George Bush's nephew is now in the Navy. Many Republicans I volunteer with have children in the military.

Be careful about throwing stones when you're standing in a glass house yourself.

Thanks for visiting.
