They have called our president a liar, a terrorist, an idiot,
and compared him to Hitler. They have called our soldiers "terrorists" and
"murderers" and their mission unjustified and illegal. But the most despicable
thing I have ever seen a public official do was when Harry Reid took center
stage in front of the cameras and microphones and announced to our citizens and
to our enemies alike:
"I believe myself that the secretary of state, secretary
of defense and — you have to make your own decisions as to what the president
knows — this war is lost and the surge is not accomplishing anything as
indicated by the extreme violence in Iraq yesterday,"
It is truly pitiful how easily Democrats like Harry Reid and
Nancy Pelosi are willing to just give up and surrender a country to the enemy.
Would it be any different if the country at stake was the United States of
America? The answer to that should be obvious to everyone by now.
This statement by Reid should be proof to everyone that Reid is
not competent to hold a leadership position in the Senate or anywhere else in
the government. There can be only two possible reasons for him making this
statement. Either he really believes this nonsense and is so consumed by
liberal and media propaganda, that he is completely out of touch with the real
world, or, he is a traitor to his country and is doing everything he can to turn
victory over to the enemy. In either case, he is not competent to be
the leader of the Senate.
In the former case, it is not just his ignorance of what is
really happening in Iraq that should be held to account, but his
utter stupidity in making such a public statement. Has he given one
second of thought to how his words will effect the moral of our
troops? Has he given one minute of thought to how his words will
effect the moral and determination of the enemy? Where is his loyalty to
America? Would anyone who supports America's side in this war make such an
asinine statement? Even if that is what he really believes, he should know
better than to speak it publicly while our troops are in harms way. This
The other possibility, that it wasn't done out of stupidity but
rather was intentional, is even more despicable. The Democrat leadership
has staked the political future of the Democrat party on failure in Iraq.
This is a difficult position to justify to the American people but if they can
force defeat for the US in Iraq, then they can claim they were right all along
and gain political advantage by ignoring, as they have been, that they
originally supported the invasion of Iraq.
Reid has become a cheerleader for the enemy's cause with these words, and
along with the Iraq war legislation he and his liberal ilk have been trying to
pass in Congress, have in no uncertain terms told al Qaeda and Iran to keep
fighting with all they have and wait for the US to pull out. If you were
an enemy fighter in Iraq, would you even consider giving up after hearing
this? No, you wouldn't. You would be encouraged beyond all belief to
keep up the fight and wait for the US to leave knowing full well that Reid and
the Democrats are on your side.
I can't imagine anything more helpful to the enemy than what
Harry Reid has done. This is treason of the highest order for a man in his
position to be giving aid and comfort to the enemy as Reid has just done.
Many Republicans in Congress have spoken out on this but who is willing to hold
Harry Reid accountable? I don't see anyone doing that so far. Where
is the backbone of the Republican party? When will they ever stand up for
America and hold traitors and subversives like Reid accountable?
As President Bush resists their attempts in Congress to force
a withdrawal and surrender, Democrats are becoming more desperate and
taking more desperate measures. Their attempts to force defeat are now
becoming too obvious to anyone who is not brainwashed by the liberal mantra and
media. I'm afraid that what they have done
so far to assure defeat in Iraq has already gone beyond the point of no return
What I mean by that is I believe that our enemies in the Middle
East are now convinced that they can and will win this war. They will
continue to fight even harder, killing Iraqis and our young soldiers with
even more conviction until they drive us out, which they now believe is
possible. They are now convinced that the only thing standing between them
and victory in Iraq and Afghanistan is President Bush and he has only 20
months left in office.
It should be clear to everyone by now that the Democrats'
objective is to get out of Iraq with or without victory, preferably without, and
do it all in the name of "peace". Victory, or any plan for it, is not in
their vocabulary and never has been. The unanswered question is still; how
do they intend to convince our enemies to adopt peace?
When called to account for his statement, Reid then,
being prompted by Chuck Schumer, answered with:
"The (Iraq) war can only be won diplomatically,
politically and economically, and the president needs to come to that
Who does Harry Reid think we are fighting against anyway?
Does he really think this is some sort of a diplomatic or territorial
dispute? Does he really think al Qaeda and Iran are interested in
negotiations and compromise with how many westerners they intend to
slaughter? To avoid answering this question, they try to convince us that
we are merely engaged in a "civil war" in Iraq between Shi'ites and Sunnis while
avoiding any reference to the real enemy and purpose of our being there.
And speaking of the real enemy, you may have noticed that I have
mentioned Iran several times in this piece. We have known for some time
now that Iran has been backing, supplying, training, and supporting enemy
fighters in Iraq. Now we know that Iran is also behind training,
supporting, and supplying the Talliban in Afghanistan. How long must
we endure this chaos before this country recognizes the real enemy we have been
fighting all along - Iran.
Iran has been at war with us for control of Iraq every
since we deposed Saddam Hussein yet our government fails to recognize it.
We have all the proof we need of Iran's involvement yet our government
refuses to admit it and declare war against Iran. How long was al Qaeda at
war with America before we finally realized it and took action against
them? How long will it be before we take action against Iran. Are we
just waiting until they have the bomb so that we can nuke them after they have
nuked Israel and a few of our American cities?
No matter what President Bush believes is necessary to protect
our country now, he's going to have a hard time getting any of it done with
traitors in the Congress like Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi who would rather
sit and drink tea with the enemy than fight them. But no matter how you
look at it, there is no excuse for Harry Reid's remarks last
Harry Reid owes this country not only an apology, but his
resignation. He is not fit to lead the Senate, or for that matter, hold any
government office. Harry Reid and others like him must be removed
from Congress and replaced with patriotic Americans who do support our country
and our Constitution.
