This is a quote from a CNN article:
"Rep. John Murtha, D-Pennsylvania, in a news conference with Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, D-California, said the problems in Iraq are due to a "lack of planning" by Pentagon chiefs and "the direction has got be changed or it is unwinnable."
Republicans seized on that word, ignoring Murtha's overall point: that more troops and equipment should be sent to Iraq."
Just what exactly is a "winnable situation" in a culture dominated by moslem philosophy for, oh, about 6,000 years????
Are these guys for real, or what? more troops and ammo?? Just how is that going to change the culture?
Thats what this all is now. Its a cultural war. I gues if we used enough troops and ammo, and completely obliterated all traces of muslim thoughts and idealogy, then things might change.
I agree that saddam needed to go, and reports of wmd needed checked out, then to me, its time to go home.
I really dont have a political favorite for our upcomming election, i do not think much of kerry at all, another hanoi jane in my book. But, the current administration made a huge error in judgement here. To me, they missed the boat completly thinking they could bring a democratic goverment to a country in a year and undue 6,000 years of culture, beliefs, tradition, and religion.
Again, I find myself thinking.... were these guys hoping to happen??????
