Democrats resolved to win in Iraq

Byline: | Category: Iraq | Posted at: Friday, 25 May 2007

Democrats have finally resolved to see the war in Iraq through to a successful conclusion no matter how long it takes. 

Oops . . . that should have read “the war over Iraq.” 

“Those of us who oppose this war will be back again and again and again and again until this war has ended,” said Rep. Jim McGovern, D-Mass.

McGovern . . . now why does that name sound so familiar?

It’s not just Democrats, some Republicans are demanding that something be done this summer:

Sen. John Warner, R-Va., said Thursday that if the security situation in Iraq does not improve by mid-July, the president should consider adopting a new strategy there.

But how will the Senate measure improvement since it won’t be until Septmber that Gen. David Petraeus reports to Congress the status of operations?  “Also due by September is an independent assessment of progress made by the Iraqi government.”  

I suppose that Warner has already made up his mind now that whatever the military does over the next four months will fail.  But he supports the troops . . .

    Yea Krum, support the troops, as they train Iraqis to kill the very US soldiers that are training them. The Iraqi soldiers that refuse to fight when their insurgent brothers start shooting. US soldiers are being killed by bombs planted within view of Iraqi checkpoints and have found on more than one occasion that the bombers are the Iraqi military.

    Sergeant O’Flarity, Delta Company: “the Iraqi security forces are militias beholden to local leaders, not the Iraqi government. Half of the Iraqi security forces are insurgents.”

    “April 29th was a watershed moment in a negative sense, because the Iraqi Army would not fight with us. Some actually picked up weapons and fought against us. Before that fight, there were a few true believers. After the 29th, I don’t think you’ll find a true believer in this unit.” – Captain Rogers, Delta Company

    “In 2003, 2004, 100 percent of the soldiers wanted to be here, to fight this war. Now, 95 percent of my platoon agrees with me.”
    -Sgt. First Class David Moore, a self-described ‘conservative Texas Republican’

    “What are we doing here? Why are we still here? We’re helping guys that are trying to kill us. We help them in the day. They turn around at night and try to kill us.”
    – Sergeant Safstrom, a member of Delta Company of the First Battalion, 325th Airborne Infantry, 82nd Airborne Division.

    Get over there Bob… you support this war, and this president. Since you demonize all those that question it, you better start demonizing Delta Company.
