Democrat Leader Provides More Aid and Comfort to Terrorists
Ever since the Democrat-run US Senate’s unanimous January 2007 confirmation of Lt. General David Petraeus’ position to the new US forces commander in Iraq, the Democrat senators have been fighting against both the General and our troops. House Majority leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) traveled to terrorist-run Syria, with her assortment of submission-scarves to wear before the throne of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Pelosi believes conversations with, and lending credibility to, countries that train and support terrorist-factions (as well as vowing to destroy the USA) is the good and appropriate thing to do. Then, in regards to meeting with the more powerful terrorist leader Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Rep. Tom Lantos (D-CA) issued the jubilant and begging-Iran statement: “Speaking just for myself, I would be ready to get on a plane tomorrow morning [to Iran], because however objectionable, unfair and inaccurate many of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's statements are…it is important that we have a dialogue with him. Speaking for myself, I'm ready to go! And knowing the speaker [Pelosi], I think that she might be!”
Not to be outdone by his House colleagues, Senate Majority leader Harry Reid has issued an even more anti-American message to the terrorists; designed to eliminate and heavily discount any and all advances and improvements made in Iraq by US troops. Despite information to the contrary, Senate Majority leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has made the decision that the US has already lost the Iraq war. At a Thursday a press conference, Senator Reid announced: “This war is lost and the surge is not accomplishing anything as indicated by the extreme violence in Iraq yesterday.” Then, assumptively and errantly speaking on behalf of US Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice and Secretary of State Gates, the senator added: “I believe myself that the secretary of state, secretary of defense, and you have to make your own decisions as to what the president knows, know that this war is lost and the surge is not accomplishing anything as indicated by the extreme violence in Iraq.”
Note: Reid apparently does not realize that “extreme violence” occurs in all wars and, with the current Democrat leadership enthusiastically lending both authority and support to the terrorists, fundamentalist Islamic violence is increasing. Where did this man go to school? Did he neither learn nor read about the abject carnage that occurred in both Viet Nam and Cambodia after US troops had cut and run—also under the peculiar “guidance” of Congressional Democrats? Apparently not.
After Pelosi’s Syrian shenanigans, Lantos’ eternal yearnings to visit terrorist Iran and Reid’s Thursday statements, one is left to wonder about the true agenda of the Democrat Party. Is its new motto: “We’ve ruined countries in the past and we can do it again!”? Or, is it simply that their destruction of the United States of America (by Democrat Party ‘standards’) is not yet complete? Either way, the cowardice—if not treasonous behaviors—currently being displayed by Democrat leaders should be viewed and listened to by all US citizens. We already know the terrorists are praising and applauding them. But, this is what happens when a major portion of voters—due to anger with their Republican leadership—stays home on Election Day. The anti-American terrorist-supporting faction wins. Will you stay home in 2008? If you do, believe it or not, it will only get worse for all of us.
