Please pray for our Patriot Armed Forces standing in harm’s way around the world, and for their families, especially those of our fallen Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen, who have died in defense of American liberty while prosecuting the war with Jihadistan.
Your prayers are needed even more after what Congress did this past week to embolden our enemies!
Despite the fact that in less than two months General Petraeus was scheduled by Congress to return from Iraq to report on the military progress the power hungry democrats in the House of Representatives pulled the rug out from under him and the brave troops he commands.
By a vote of 223-201 the Democrat controlled megalomaniacs who now control congress decided to play General. The voted to begin withdrawing troops from Iraq within the next three months.
Even Dennis Kucinich(Dem, O.)voted against the bill, but not because he is apposed to withdrawal. He did not like the stipulation that tens of thousands of troops will be left behind. He wants them all out!
The defeatist Democrats lead by "Queen" Pelosi and one time hero now turned terrorist appeaser, Murtha sent a message loud and clear that the United States does not to fight terrorism anymore. Congress woman Marsha Blackburn(Rep. Tenn.) said of this vote: this sends the message that the U.S. is weak on terrorism".
In the worst case scenario this bill would allow another slaughter similar to the Viet Minh annihilation of French troops in 1954 in the Vietnam area of Dien Vien Phu. Only this time it will be the troops left behind by the Democrats withdrawal of their comrades,leaving them to defend against overwhelming al Qaeda forces who will fill Iraq once our troops leave.
The slaughter will not end with our troops either. This power play by the Democrats in Congress who MUST show President Bush it is they whom run this Country not him. Will result in the murder of tens of thousands of Iarqi Sunni women and children along with their men who supported our troops.
I expect President Bush to veto this act of perfidy, but the Congress must hear from us bloggers that they were not elected as generals who control the battles in the field. They control the "purse strings, but they do not tell the Commander in Chief and his Generals how to fight the war.
If these megalomaniacs want to flex their muscles let them vote to cut off all funding for the troops. This they were elected to be able to do. And then let them go home and try to get re-elected after they do that!
