Here is an Iraq War Vet clearly stating what Obama and the Democrats fail to understand about the war in Iraq and our troops….that is, the Iraq War and the sacrifices made were not a mistake and they want to continue to fight for Freedom. (Be sure to see the end of the video!) (Video – H/T: CDR Salamander):
Now contrast the hero’s words with the comments from prominent Democrats regarding the Iraq War and our troops …..Are these the people in you want leading this country and “supporting” your troops and defending America?
Nancy Pelosi’s nod to Iran for the surge’s success…not the success of our troops (H/T: Ace of Spades):
Well, the purpose of the surge was to provide a secure space, a time for the political change to occur to accomplish the reconciliation. That didn’t happen. Whatever the military success, and progress that may have been made, the surge didn’t accomplish its goal.And some of the success of the surge is that the goodwill of the Iranians-they decided in Basra when the fighting would end, they negotiated that cessation of hostilities-the Iranians.
And then there is the lamebrain from Nevada, Harry Reid, talking to hear himself:
“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 – (know) this war is lost and the surge is not accomplishing anything as indicated by the extreme violence in Iraq yesterday.
And famous military vet who turned on his own brothers, John Kerry, showing such support for the ablities of our soldiers (from WashingtonPost.com):
Iraq is “held together by chewing gum and Band-Aids…
And from Joe “The Motor Mouth” Biden (source: MichelleMalkin.com)—such confidence in our solders-NOT:
….a surge in ground troops … is the wrong way to go, and I believe it will have the opposite — I repeat — opposite effect the president intends…
And, of course, Barack Obama, whose stands on the war change with the political tide….but never forget that he said the surge wouldn’t work if more troops are added…in effect, Obama has no trust in the troops to win and/or even a will to win. Worse yet, Obama has had no dedication to the cause of the troops and winning….Obama has said he opposed the war in Iraq and that there is no military solution there….yet he wants you to believe he has always supported the troops and the war.

I’ll take a war hero and pit bull with lipstick over the unpatriotic, lefty who can’t take a solid position on the war or show a confidence in our troops’ abilities to win.
