Democratic Party Big Three Won't Commit to Quick Troop Pullout

  • 7 Comments
  • by: cologeek

Apparently they are starting to realize that we will need to be there for some time to come.

If troops are withdrawn prematurely there will be longstanding ramifications that reach beyond the middle east.  Every thing that is said about Democrats being weak-kneed in regards to standing against our enemies will be verified.  Anti-war, anti-military sentiment is not playing well in much of America, the recent votes in Congress on the MoveOn ad show this.  Now the leading candidates on the Democratic side are refusing to commit to immediately withdraw troops from Iraq.  I wonder if we just turned a corner?

  1. That wasn’t the question during the debate. Russert asked if they would withrdrawl ALL troops from Iraq during their Presidency. There’s a difference between withdrawing our combat forces and ALL forces. Look at Bosnia.

      1. Way to stay on message.  Mention that Clinton’s submission of sovereignty in the Balkans was wonderful, then come straight back to “Evil Corporations” and “outsourcing the war.”

        Really, when you think about it, “Evil Corporations” can be blamed for everything, ever. 

        1. pointing out the obvious is usually pretty easy. Trying to get the facts through to cons is a little more difficult, since all of your talking points are so incredibly ridiculous it’s sometimes hard to even take you serious.

  2. and while you cons are all worked up over a newspaper ad, our troops are forgotten as Rep. Blackburn reminded us who the cons are really looking out for; party first.

    And to add insult to injury our wounded soldiers returning from this debacle are not taken care of as promised by the Commander Guy. http://www.iava.org/

  3. The candidates had to come to grip with reality.

    Good leaders don’t make promises they can’t keep and the Dem candidates recognize that the Iraq war is more than empty campaign slogans to pander to their base.

    As upset as Americans are about this war, they recognize that playing the anti-war/anti-military card is not the way to go.  Personally, I think that Americans are more tuned to hear empty promises concerning Iraq, having heard them for the last six years.
