Nancy Pelosi & John Murtha Visit Iraq … Just Who the Troops Want to See, the face of Defeatism


Now Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi goes to Iraq on a fact finding mission? With all the criticism of the war now she makes an appearance. Note to Nancy … you will not find the answers in the safe and protected Green Zone.

The Pelosi delegation visited the heavily fortified Green Zone, site of the American Embassy, and met with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.

“We come out of the meeting with a greater understanding of the others’ point of view,” Pelosi, D-Calif., said, in brief remarks after the meeting.

She said the delegation also came “to convey to our troops the appreciation of the American people for what they’re doing, to applaud their patriotism.”

Who are you kidding? All this said by Pelosi with a straight face. Our troops do not need applause, they need the means to successfully accomplish their goals. Not cut them off at the knees and pull the rug out from underneath them.  More from The Gateway Pundit and Pelosi & Murtha On “Goodbye Baghdad” Tour. Michelle Malkin reporting that this should be a great moral boost for the troops. No sarcasm there. More moral boosting comments from My Pet Jawa.

President George W Bush replies, “I’m the decision-maker about sending more troops to the war.

      maybe pelosi and murtha can walk on over to the insurgency center and establish a good working relationship with the insurgents. as it is, if i were bush or the pentagon, i’d be damned careful about letting these people have much information about planned operations. some of their “aides” have probably got open lines to the insurgents to keep them appraised of what’s going to happen just so the administration looks as bad as possible, and loses as soon as possible.

      Sorta sounds like a certain someone who went over to vietnam during that war and they wound up smoking pot in a fox hole. She musta heard they got some gud chit in araq!

      What do you want them to do, thank the troops who raped that 12 year old Iraqi girl, or the prison guards who tortured and raped countless innocent Iraqi nationals? or the troops who murdered a family of 4 for nothing? shall I go on? The cowardly leadership of our “President” is a joke. The war is a joke, and neocons are ruining our country.

      My wife, who is not with it political, ask me, “Do you know who Nancy Pelosi is? She is pretty isn’t she?”

      My answer, “Well I don’t know. When I look at her I see a socialist. Someone who thinks she has the answers for the good of everyone (except the unborn of course). Her ugly interior blocks any view of the exterior for me.”

      3. Read the new today – a-hole about our soldiers that were killed by a group of Iraq’s imposing as US GI.

      Where the hell do you think you got your freedom from?

      #4, Your venom seems to be clouding your memory. There are no instances of prison guards raping anybody. Those crimes are all bad enough without your exaggeration.

      And guess what? When you are dealing with that large number of human beings, crimes happen.

      How very fair of you to allow the overwhelming good done by the vast, vast majority of our troops to be discounted because of the crimes of a very few. And never fear, far more crimes have been committed against our troops than by them. I mean acts in violation of not only all war conventions but any semblance of humanity as well. And yes, we do have a legitimate reason for being there. It is a broken peace treaty signed by the President of Iraq at the time, one Saddam Hussein.

      So that sword cuts both ways.

      Today’s Democrats are a far cry from JFK saying that we would go any place, bear any burden, pay any price in bringing freedom to all.

      The ones we have today are more Teddy Kennedy Democrats than John Kennedy ones. That goes for so many of our Eurabian allies as well. So many who should support bringing freedom to others as it was given to them and promoting global democracy now spit in the faces of those who brought it to them in the first place. That would be our troops. They now lack the moral fiber to support these fledgling democracies and act only in their own self-interest in their RealPolitik mindset. Allies like these are certainly not to be trusted and we certainly can’t even count on them to be on the right side in The Third Great Jihad as they are quickly being converted to Muslim dominated states.

      I find it amazing that these two could look actual troops in the eye while selling them out behind their backs as they are doing. But then if one has no conscience, I guess it is easy. Should ask John Kerry as twice he has sold out and lied about his country and the military. He should have gone to prison for lying under oath before congress and he did it while still an officer in the Naval Reserve. That is treason and the punishment for that is much more severe. Naturally, he received nothing for his crimes.
      Today he is on foreign soil calling this country a pariah among nations. How much does this man have to do before he can be declared an Enemy of the State officially? I would love to see his citizenship revoked along with that of many others who commit treason on an almost daily basis.

      Blinks Pelosi needs to do a serious review of the division of powers and use her finger to read along. Moving her lips is OK, too, as I think that may be what it takes to ever sink in to this b*t*h that she is overstepping her power and authority. It is the President and the President alone who dictates foreign policy. Not the congress and not the judiciary but the executive branch of the government. With regard to that, solely the president has these powers and all these little resolutions of non-support are likely highly illegal as they are far beyond the limitations of the offices these jerks hold.

      And speaking of power grabs, just wait until we have the Socialist Hillary in the White House! Be afraid. . .be very afraid! The days of this country as a capitalist democracy may well be limited if this trend is not stopped.

      well we have 21000 more high school drop outs and rapists being deployed, so that all you neocons can try to stomp out Islam. If supporting the troops means I have to support rape and torture, then count me out.


      SM: You poor misguided fool. Go watch another CNN sound bite for hand out at DU. It is a shame these kids put their lives on the line for the likes of you.

      Imagine, people die so you have the right to post this pathetic dribble.

      Jack Murtha needs to get his fat butt back home to johnstown where nearly 1000 people are about to lose their jobs to foreign steel makers.

      bush needs to get back to Crawford for the pretzel eating contest. 1000′s of Americans are dying over his lies and stubbornness.

      #8, as long as you remember that those additional 2l,000 fine men and women, anyone of which is worth 20 of you, are fighting and dying to preserve your rights to make a complete fool of yourself in print.
