Ted K. Message To Our Troops: Hurry Up and Lose
Just when you think the Ted kennedy can't get any lower, he makes a big speech demanding an immediate timetable for withdrawal of our troops in soon to be democratic Iraq. Even a kid in middle school has the logic to understand that if you give the bad guys a date which you will be leaving, you are handing them the keys to the castle. What happens to the Iraqi people then? How about stability in the region? Does he want to see a terrorist state? I thought Sen. Chivas ws a deeply compassionate person, concerned about human rights, freedom and liberty. No, he isn't.
Colorado State Senator Steve Johnson sums up my feelings on his blog,
Ted Kennedy shocked the world, all except for the liberal establishment of
course, by stating on the floor of the Senate this month (May 2004) that
"Saddam's torture chamber reopened under new management," referring to the
isolated but appalling revelations at Abu Ghraib prison.
How Kennedy could compare the actions of a few misguided men to the systematic torture and genocide of thousands or millions at the hands of the madman Saddam defies all logic. But then the 'blame America first crowd' always defies logic. It never
ceases to amaze me why the good people of Massachusetts don't laugh this
unpatriotic traitor out of their state instead of sending him back to the U.S.
Welcome to our nightmare Senator Johnson. Sen. Chivas can say or do anything and I mean anything (drunk driving/vehicular homicide included) without consequences. His remarks about Abu Ghraib were disgusting and incredibly harmful to the people who wear our uniform in Iraq. His constant defeatism has done nothing but hurt our troops and our standing in the world. Remember, "Iraq is George Bush's Vietnam." How has he helped the US by calling our new Sec. of State a liar. He hasn't. Through his words and deeds, Teddy Kennedy makes it clear every day that he is salivating over the prospect of our defeat in Iraq.
It is ironic that the guy so appalled by the idea of pre-empitive action is now urging the administration to take pre-emptive action that would ensure defeat in Iraq. The prospect of a free election and Democracy in Iraq is too much for him. Why chance it? Let's leave now and go home. That way, the soldiers he cares about so much won't have to dodge bullets and bombs in Iraq. That is what he piously claims he wants. Send the boys and girls home. He cares about them. Please. He cares about scoring political points and making quips that undermine their mission and morale at every turn. Ask yourself this, what more could Ted Kennedy do to undermine our mission and encourage the insurgents. This guy is a United States Senator and the most revered guy in the Democrat Party. What a sad commentary.
WASHINGTON - Sen. Edward M. Kennedy's blistering call yesterday for a
speedy pullout of U.S. forces from Iraq drew a scathing rebuke from Republicans, who accused Kennedy of torpedoing American foreign policy.
``It's remarkable that Sen. Kennedy would deliver such an overtly pessimistic message only days before the Iraq election,'' said Republican National Committee spokesman Brian Jones.
``Kennedy's partisan attack stands in stark contrast to President Bush's vision of spreading freedom around the world."
