Once again top Democrats are giving the finger to our troops. Today Senate Majority leader Harry Reid and House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi aided and abetted our enemies by flatly telling President Bush that the troop surge has failed.
“As many had forseen, the escalation has failed to produce the intended results,” the two leaders wrote.
“The increase in US forces has had little impact in curbing the violence or fostering political reconciliation.
“It has not enhanced Americas national security. The unsettling reality is that instances of violence against Iraqis remain high and attacks on US forces have increased.
“In fact, the last two months of the war were the deadliest to date for US troops.”
Yep, that there surge sure has failed. Of course, the full complement of troops have yet to fully surge into the field, but these Dems are telling us it has already failed. Violence is up, so the U.S. troops suck. Just listen to the Dems.
And people are listening to the Democrats. Al-Qaeda is listening, and the murderous thugs killing our soldiers and Iraqi civilians are listening. The message they are hearing is “Hold on, terrorists! And keep killing Americans. Just a few more deaths, and we’ll wave the white flag and run.”
It’s no surprise that Senator Reid is ready to wave the white flag and claim the surge has failed. He waved the white flag and gave up in April when he said, “this war is lost.” Way to show backbone, Senator Reid!
With friends like the Democrats, the troops don’t need enemies.
