Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's pronouncement yesterday that "the war is lost" was made solely to Congress and to the American people, right? I mean, it's not like our enemies actually care or pay attention to what is said by those in leadership positions in our government (such as BushLied, US troops are Nazi storm troopers, etc., etc.) -- right?
Oops. Read on.
Al-Jazeera sure noticed, running a headline on their web page which said,
"Iraq war "lost" says top Democrat: US senate majority leader says war cannot be won by increasing troop deployment."
The article begins with the following paragraph:
The US war in Iraq is lost and a further build-up of US troops in the country will not recover the situation, the senior Democrat in the US senate has said.
It's not just Al-Jazeera. Al-Sharq al-Awsat - the self-proclaimed "Leading Arabic International Daily" - sure noticed, running a headline on their web page - along with this picture - that said, "The Democrats Believe The War Is Lost and Bush Refuses a Deadline For Withdrawal."
How about those innocent folks in Iran, who are paying no attention whatsoever to the strength and unified front (or lack thereof) presented by the US, as they flaunt their refusal to comply with US and UN calls for a halt to their nuclear weapons program? If you guessed "they noticed, too," then you are right. Iranian Press TV has a headline which reads: "US has lost war in Iraq: US Democrat. Leader of the Democratic majority in the US Congress, Harry Reid, has said the US has lost the Iraq war, and Bush's troop surge has failed." The first paragraph of the story?
"I believe ... that this war is lost, and this surge is not accomplishing anything, as is shown by the extreme violence in Iraq this week," Reid stated.
*Golf clap* Very well done, Mr. Senate Majority Leader. Anything else you'd like to say to your people? After all, it's just between you and your anti-war base - and the whole world.
Here's a hint: it may not be your "friends" who are listening the closest, or taking the most heart from what you have to say. Not that that'll make you think before speaking, of course.
And this responce from Mark Levin:
"Far more relevant, consequential and disturbing is the behavior of the Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, who by word and action is actively undermining our fighting men and women in Iraq. His legislative efforts to starve our armed forces in the middle of a war are as contemptible as anything I’ve witnessed in my 25 years in Washington. And yesterday he made a statement that was so disgraceful and brazen that it could have been uttered by Tokyo Rose during World War II or Jane Fonda during the Vietnam War. The difference, of course, is that Reid is the highest ranking Democrat in the United States Senate.
