Democrats show cowardly stripes

  • Follow Letters

The one thing Americans can always count on is the cowardice of Democrats, and Lowell M. Greenbaum's recent letter to the editor is a perfect example. ("Surge is failing; troops must leave," July 20).

For Greenbam's information, the surge has just begun with the last of the 30,000 troops arriving in place in the past few weeks. Additionally, in recent weeks, three top al-Qaida leaders in Iraq have been captured, and more and more Iraqis are turning against al-Qaida every day.

The real problem Greenbaum and his fellow Democrats have is that if the surge succeeds, they lose. Democrats have invested all of their political success in America losing the war in Iraq. Therefore, an American victory in Iraq spells disaster for Democrats politically. Since our economy is booming, unemployment is low, the stock market is setting new records and mortgage rates are low, Democrats have only one issue to help them win elections, and that's defeat in Iraq. Is it any wonder Greenbaum wants us to quit and leave Iraq now?

As for the rest of his cowardly colleagues, the Senate Democrats brought cots into the Senate recently to stay all night and break a Republican filibuster. Then, in the early morning hours, they went home. How can anyone in America trust Democrats to have the courage to defend America when they don't have the courage to stay awake all night?

jack,have we become that

jack,have we become that selfish and spoiled that we would allow a female to strap up and be shot at,while the sissy boys sit back in the offices breaking pencils waiting for the nco club to open, so they can get drunk,and go home and kick the dog like a real man?would you want your sister,or mother to fight for a bunch of wimps? i wouldn't! sheeple is a word we use on the aol boards.it is people too scared to come out of the box and think for themselves,so they just follow everyone else.i would say anytime you have 3 carrier groups in one location(off the coast of iran) that something is cooking.

popkorn....Women fought for

popkorn....Women fought for years to get the right to "strap up and be shot at." No one forced them to fight for equal rights. What you are missing is that with equal rights comes equal responisibilities.

I say it takes more courage

I say it takes more courage to stand by your decisions and do what you believe is right that to do whatever the latest poll indicates would get you re-elected.

Jake....You've been listening

Jake....You've been listening to popkorn too much. Let's not fall for every conspiracy theory around with no substance to back any of them up.

Oh Lord, Please, send us a great INDEPENDENT candidate for President so that both of these 2 parties will just shut up for awhile.
P.S. Can anyone say Afghanistan? It's where the real fight is taking place in case any of you and your diversions cloud your memory.

Sorry Coco Rubio...since you

Sorry Coco Rubio...since you can't "hear" sarcasm in writing I thought you were serious. And hey, I'm on your side, I agree with you 100%! And KPC, the Bin Laden family being able to leave the country on 9/11 isn't a "conspiracy theory" it's documented, stated fact!
