"We Can't Accomplish Anything Further in Iraq Militarily" -- Respected Dem.

A top Democratic Representative that has earned bipartisan respect and is a marine Vietnam vet, John Murtha of Pennsylvania has called for immediate withdrawal from Iraq.

"The U.S. cannot accomplish anything further in Iraq militarily. It is time to bring them home," said Rep. John Murtha (news, bio, voting record) of Pennsylvania, a senior Democrat on the subcommittee that oversees military spending.

Yes, Resident Pretender Bush and Co. lied their way into the war and continue to vigourously attack any who question the wisdom of their imperial ways.  At least they are now in a position where they are starting to boldly fly their liars flag and demonstrate exactly what blackguards they truly are.

"The war in Iraq is not going as advertised. It is a flawed policy wrapped in illusion," Murtha said.

House Democrat calls for immediate troop withdrawal

Vietnam vet says the Iraq war is a flawed policy wrapped in illusion

WASHINGTON (AP) -- An influential House Democrat who voted for the Iraq war called Thursday for the immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, another sign of growing unease in Congress about the conflict.

"This is the immediate redeployment of American forces because they have become the target," said Rep. John Murtha, D-Pennsylvania, one of Congress' most hawkish Democrats. At times during his remarks to reporters, the decorated Vietnam War veteran and former Marine was choking back tears.

"It is time for a change in direction. Our military is suffering, the future of our country is at risk. We cannot continue on the present course. It is evident that continued military action in Iraq is not in the best interests of the United States of America, the Iraqi people or the Persian Gulf region," Murtha said.

Murtha, the top Democrat on the House Appropriations defense subcommittee, has earned bipartisan respect for his grasp of military issues over three decades in Congress.

Hallelujah!  The Dems are finally talking some sense!
