Iraq war horror taking Bush/Cheney down

WASHINGTON -- Finally some more American political leaders are getting mad and challenging Bush/Cheney on this terrible war in Iraq. As the flag-draped coffins pile up, the political heat on Bush keeps rising as citizens say 'no more'.

Rep. Jack Murtha (D-PA), a decorated Vietnam vet and highly respected house member on defense issues, told it like it is and pulled no punches Thursday about Bush's failed and costly war.

Murtha said we should get out of Iraq now, and powerfully ripped Bush/Cheney for sending soldiers to die without ever having served themselves.

Across the nation you could hear the shouts of supports of people hearing it on the news, 'right on!'

The house erupted in another big war argument on Friday, where some non-veteran GOP Reps. attacked Murtha as a 'coward'.

More elected officials should start speaking up loudly against this unjust war, and calling for troops home now.

Bush/Cheney now up the attack on anyone who is critical of the war. That will not work, not with most Americans clearly opposed. This is their war, it is going very badly, and people don't want it. Why stay the course on a failed and unneeded mission? So we can boost up a dysfunctional Iraqi regime? No thanks.

But common sense and public opinion doesn't stop kneeling Bush lapdogs like Rep. Jim Kolbe (R-AZ) from shilling for more war. Kolbe told the LA Times yesterday he thinks most Republicans will still support Bush on the Iraq war, adding his view that we cannot pull out of Iraq. People gotta vote Kolbe out in 06. He's been in Washington too long.

As we approach the holidays, think of this war as we sit safe. Think of the 100,000+ dead and wounded civilians and soldiers and their families. Think of the Bush/Cheney lies. Think of the millions of Iraqi children damaged for life. Think of our moral duty to end the Iraq war's killing, suffering, and destruction.

Bush/Cheney should resign, and step down after an emergency nationwide Presidential election 60 days later.

My fellow Americans, we need to right this wrong.

Yeah...everyone is in such agreement that the resolution to pull out of Iraq failed 400 to 3

That is your politicians folks. God bless em


Murtha is a war criminal and should be tried for sedition and aiding the enemy, Durbin, Pelosi, Feinstein, Boxer and Clinton as well.

I bet Mr. Murtha did not backstab his president when he was in Nam. Now he plays politics. Although I do appreciate his past service.

This is not about keeping a smilely face on the War Beast in Chief. It's about stopping the insanity of our invasion of Iraq. Murtha cares more about the men and women and children getting blown to bits than he does about standing behind a president who is wrong. Standing up for what is right even if it flys in the face of the president is not only what is expected of a true American patriot, it is what, supposedly, our soldiers are giving their lives for. Peace - and dissent - are patriotic.

I applaud Murtha's courage and pray it does some good.

Trust me its all political. It is indeed what our soldiers are fighting for. Thats what makes his recent statements flipp floppy. Just remember this: I would love to have all of our people home NOW! If they came home now, the war will come here. I know youll probably say something like," oh no, they will leave us in peace because we are out of their country finally"............ no way.......If the fine people of Iraq were able to stand up for themselves in the first place dictatorship, and idealoligy would be nonexsistant over there. I say a good time table to get out would be up to the sheites and kurds.... the sunnis like saddam encourage murder and chaos. Its kinda like whensaddam was given a months time to show UN inspectors that he wasnt harboring WMDs.. otherwise we wouldnt have been there in the first place. The sunnis are carrying out the insurgency, the war. Just goes to show how much they care about there own blown to bits children. I for one would like the war to stay there instead of coming here. Sorry, Im worried about my own right now. I thank my lucky stars that our men and women in uniform are so damn brave, and I believe that if we let them do their jobs without squawking... you might find that there is so much to this that we dont even know about. War is ugly as ugly as something can be and I weep like you for the innocent, but I'm innocent too.

Ah, the old "we're fighting them there so we don't have to fight them here" abject nonsense.

That's why we should send all of our Border Patrol agents to Puerto Vallarta, so they can fight illegal immigration there instead of here.

I know I've used that line before, but it just gets better every time I say it.
