LET THE CONGRESS VOTE ON WITHDAWAL FROM IRAQ

Dem/Left doves like Murtha are literally CRYING about how we are losing in Iraq and should withdraw from this pointless quagmire and/or blunder. Their whining and dishonest revisionism is being loudly broadcast and re-broadcast over and over and over again as part of a Dem/Left/MSM propagandistic disinformation campaign which takes it inspiration from those who invented THE BIG LIE; that's the theory which asserts that if you repeat a lie often enough, then people will believe it. Polls shows - with regard to Iraq - it is working as well now as it did in the last century with regard to Vietnam - a war we were actually WINNING, though you'd hardly know that from reading press reports or from reading Dem/Left/dove press releases -- [I KNOW: that's redundant!]).

I agree with Jeff at PW:

So. How do pro-war conservatives proceed? Well, one move would be to call Congress to a vote for immediate withdrawal of troops from Iraq. If Democrats want to flirt with the idea of cutting and running as a means to stroke their rabid antiwar base, force them to put their votes on record; let history show which lawmakers were willing to surrender to terrorists and to leave to the mercy of murderous fanatics millions of Iraqis who trusted enough in our stated commitment to begin the political transformation into a functioning democracy, complete with provisional constitution. If that doesn’t put an end to this nonsense, nothing will.

YUP: This WILL either put an end to their posturing and pandering or it will finally expose them as the cowards, appeasers and defeatists they truly are.

Looks like the House Republicans are trying to act on your suggestion and force a vote on such a resolution this afternoon!

First let me tell you I really enjoy reading this blog... I like your perspective on all the subjects I've read since I found you.

As far as Murtha goes... I understand he is being investigated on matters that I will have to look up again... but my question is SOMETHING about him seems fishy on all of this. I am wondering IF he has Proposed this controversial CUT AND RUN proposal as a smoke screen, so he can come back and tell the public that the Bush White House is investigating him because they are trying to punish him for the cut and run House Circus we just witnessed.

Any thoughts on this?

i haven't heard that angle, noble-one. please research and get back to me.

that sort of thing is common.
and it wouldn't surprise me that a poltician would exploit the war for persoanal reasons.

on the opther hand, in a general sense, the DEM/LEFt is exploiting the war for partisan gain at the expense of the military effort there in iraq and everywhere.

they have no shame.

thanks for the kind comments and compliments.

ROLL CALL - Republican lawmakers say that ties between Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.) and his brother’s lobbying firm, KSA Consulting, may warrant investigation by the House ethics committee.

According to a June 13 article in The Los Angeles Times, the fiscal 2005 defense appropriations bill included more than $20 million in funding for at least 10 companies for whom KSA lobbied. Carmen Scialabba, a longtime Murtha aide, works at KSA as well.

KSA directly lobbied Murtha’s office on behalf of seven companies, and a Murtha aide told a defense contractor that it should retain KSA to represent it, according to the LA Times.

In early 2004, Murtha reportedly leaned on U.S. Navy officials to sign a contract to transfer the Hunters Point Shipyard to the city of San Francisco, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. A company called Lennar Inc. had right to the land, and Laurence Pelosi, nephew to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), was an executive with the firm at that time.

Murtha also inserted earmarks in defense bills that steered millions of dollars in federal research funds toward companies owned by children of fellow Pennsylvania Rep. Paul Kanjorski (D).
