New Low for Moonbat Jack Murtha
Apparently John "Moonbat Jack" Murtha's 15 minutes of fame — which he acquired in a deal with the Devil in return for stabbing his own country in the back during wartime — are in danger of running out. His rhetoric has been moving into Cindy Sheehan territory as he desperately attempts to keep the fickle flames of media adulation alive. At least after his performance on Nightline the other night, no one will feel obligated to preface every response to his outrageous remarks with shovelfuls of obsequious rhetoric about how profoundly everyone respects this shameless old wretch.
Murtha declared that the struggle we are currently winning in Iraq is "absolutely" the wrong war, and struck a new personal low by attempting to dissuade Americans from joining the military.
"Would you join (the military) today?," he was asked.
"No," pouted Moonbat Jack.
"And I think you're saying the average guy out there who's considering recruitment is justified in saying 'I don't want to serve'," observed the interviewer.
"Exactly right," Murtha confirmed.
Like most bad things, the distasteful Jack Murtha phenomenon has been blamed on President Bush. As reported by a slavishly sympathetic Newsweek, Murtha became peeved when Bush wouldn't pay enough attention to his suggestions for how to run the war. Like a spoilt six-year-old, Murtha responded by changing sides.
"If they'd talked to me, it wouldn't have happened," puled the slippery back-stabbing traitor Newsweek amusingly calls a "rock-solid patriot."
To exact his revenge for the perceived slight, Murtha has done everything he could to weaken the morale of our country and our troops, and has openly called for surrender to al Qaeda (using the weasel word "redeployment"). This may have cost him the respect of every American whose head isn't screwed on backwards, but he did get his 15 minutes from the press.

Wouldn't "redeployment" allow us to fight al Qaeda instead of Iraqis.
Afterall, Bush "cut and run" or "redeployed" from Tora Bora, missing an opportunity to crush al Qaeda once and for all -- just to get all them shiney Iraqi WMDs!
It'll be nice when we can get back to the War on Terror.

"Really [a] Retard" actually thinks it's Iraqis we're fighting in Iraq. Not Syrians, Palestinians and Arabs and al-Qaeda ass-kissing Sunnis.
What an uninformed loser.
Reality is only what's in the Leftist's mind.

Say Murtha's "redeployment" (a Democrat euphemism for Retreat) actually happened. Idiots like Junior might buy into the "redployment," but our enemies would see it for what it was, "retreat." They would be empowered and remoralized exactly like Al Qaeda was when Clinton retreated from Somalia.
The emboldened insurgents would step up their attacks, plungin Iraq back into anarchy/civil war/whatever. At which point, the U.S. would either have to re-invade to restore order at the cost of additional lives and money, or surrender Iraq to the headchoppers.
How stupid or how high does one have to be not to see the sheer idiocy of Murtha's plan?

V the K has it spot on...
retreating will cost Iraqi lives and re-invading will cost more American and Iraqi lives.
Of course, I don't think Murtha or the moonbats are concerned with that really. It's all about Bush.
It's not about the soldier, sailor, Marine or airman that has fallen, it's not about the innocent civilians who have been killed by insurgents, it's not about fostering democracy in the Middle East, it's not about fighting the GWOT..it's about 2006/2008 and that is just sick.
And Ronald Raygun (not Reagan, you don't deserve the name) a foreign policy expert, a military strategist, a civil affairs officer, a proponent of democracy or a protector of US citizens, you ain't.
You are, however, always on your mind.
Congratulations. What a stretch that must be.

In Murtha's case, it's also about becoming a media saint to avoid investigation on ethics charges flowing from the millions of dollars he directed to companies who paid his brother's lobbying firm millions of dollars in "consulting fees."

Eh, can we quit insulting poor retarded people by referring to RR as "retarded?" Really,he's Ridiculous!

V the K: I think you answered your own question here: "How stupid or how high does one have to be not to see the sheer idiocy of Murtha's plan? "
Only the willfully ignorant or complete fools like the resident moonbat RR above would think that Murtha's ideas make any sense at all.
And since loony tune lefties like RR seem to care so much about Osama bin Laden, perhaps he can tell us why Clinton passed up at least two opportunities to have him handed over on a silver platter?

This guy makes me get as crazy as when I'm arguinging with lefty friends and McCain's nae comes up as some sort of "authority."
I played a couple seasons semi-pro as a goalie; that didn't fucking turn me into Jaques Plante. But it got me a hell closer to talking about the state of the NHL than what goobers like this dolt know about current Armed Forces reality.

Victor Davis Hanson wrote a piece recently about exactly what you bring up, Van Helsing:
The three shining examples he brought up were Murtha, Richard Clark and Wesley Clarke. He unequivocaly stated that all three were merely feeling slighted because Bush did not respond to their input and like children, they pout and look for the attention they so crave elsewhere.

The lll's are castated geldings these days--no threat to anyone at all.

Murtha's just pissed that, instead of following his advice and willfully committing political seppuku, Bush has simply called him a "great American" before telling him (essentially) to go pound sand.
And Ronnie, be honest, you're the kinda moonbat that claimed Afghanistan was an "unwinnable war," that "the Soviets proved that," and still claims "9/11 was a hoax and Bin Ladin is a scapegoat."

Poor, poor Doug thinks we're fighting non-Iraqis in Iraq. Sorry to burst your bubble. But check out the Pentagon for some eye opening stats.
There are some foreign fighters. More than half from Saudi Arabia. But they are a tiny tiny faction of those fighting. Most are what the Pentagon call "insurgents" -- meaning Iraqis loyal to Saddam.

You know how we catch little weakling Moonbats that masquerade as a REAL MAN around here? With a 12-gague. Don't believe me? Email me and you can come to my town. I'll be waiting.
I bet you're a metro-sexual and speak fwench too. I'm sure you just adooooored Hump-Back Mountain. Tell us, RR, what does AC/DC pudding taste like?

Be nice, Doug. BDS is very painful, includes foaming at the mouth, delusions of paranoia, and precludes any semblance of clear thinking.
