THE LEFTIE DOVES WHO RUN THE DEMOCRAT PARTY ANNOUNCE THEY WILL ABANDON IRAQ

... JUST LIKE THEY ABANDONED SOUTH VIETNAM. AND THEY BRAG ABOUT IT!

THE HILL - (VIA INFIDEL BLOGGERS ALLIANCE):
... when pressed on how he could stop the war even if Democrats control the House during the last years of President Bush’s second term, Rangel [WHO WOULD BECOME CHAIRMAN OF THE POWERFUL HOUSE HAYS AND MEANS COMMITTEE] paused before saying, “You’ve got to be able to pay for the war, don’t you?”

Rangel’s views on funding the war are shared by many of his colleagues – especially within the 73-member Out of Iraq Caucus.

Some Democratic legislators want to halt funding for the war immediately, while others say they would allocate money for activities such as reconstruction, setting up international security forces, and the ultimate withdrawal of U.S. troops.

“Personally, I wouldn’t spend another dime [on the war,]” said Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-Calif.).

Woolsey is among the Democrats in Congress who are hoping to control the power of the purse in 2007 to force an end to the war. Woolsey and some of her colleagues note that Congress helped force the end of Vietnam War by refusing to pay for it.
THESE LEFTIE DOVES GET THE FACTS AND DATES WRONG, BUT THE GIST OF WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT VIETNAM IS ACCURATE - Wikipedia:
American combat troops were involved from 1959, but not in large numbers until 1965. They left the country in 1973.... [THAT'S 1973!] the war ... ended on April 30, 1975, [THAT'S 1975!] with the capitulation of South Vietnam. ...

In December 1974, the Democrat majority in Congress passed the Foreign Assistance Act of 1974, which cut off all military funding to the South Vietnamese government and made unenforceable the peace terms negotiated by Nixon.
THE CONCLUSION IS INARGUABLE:
South Vietnam would be as free and prosperous as South Korea today (instead of almost as tyannized and poor as NORTH Korea) if the doves of the Democrat party hadn't ABANDONED them in 1975, (effectively).
And they are publicly proclaiming they will do the same thing to the Iraqis. I feel they won't stop there: They will abandon the Afghanis. And then Israelis; (FACT: a majority of Dems polled by the LAT felt that our current foreign policy is biased in favor of Israel!).

MORE HERE - in a must read/RTWT - CFR ARTICLE BY MELVIN LAIRD; excerpt:
Summary: "During Richard Nixon's first term, when I served as secretary of defense, we withdrew most U.S. forces from Vietnam while building up the South's ability to defend itself. The result was a success -- until Congress snatched defeat from the jaws of victory by cutting off funding for our ally in 1975. Washington should follow a similar strategy now, but this time finish the job properly."
THE LEFTIE DOVE DEMOCRATS ARE PROMISING THEY WILL NOT FINISH THE JOB PROPERLY!

THAT'S WHY WE MUST NOT ALLOW THEM TO GET A MAJORITY IN THE HOUSE.

Tony Blankley had a great article on this a while ago. He says:

"Now the Watergate babies have grown old — and age has not improved them. They plan to finish their careers as they started them — in defeatism, betrayal and national dishonor. Oh, that America might see the last of these fish-eyed sacks of loathsome bile and infamy: unwholesome in their birth; repugnant and stench-forming in their decline."

Bullseye!
