Three Cheers for this Vietnam Veteran...

Congressman John Murpha Calls for Immediate Withdrawal from Iraq

What a bombshell! One of the most conservative Democratic members of Congress DEMANDED IMMEDIATE WITHDRAWAL OF ALL US TROOPS FROM IRAQ. That's right, Congressman John Murpha, a distinguished Vietnam Veteran, passionately made the case for getting out of Iraq IMMEDIATELY.

We've reached some kind of tipping point. This afternoon I sent an email to a friend suggesting we might have come to the beginning of the end.

I contrast the bold statement of Murpha with the hair-splitting performance by John Kerry in his interview this afternoon with Wolf Blitzer. Kerry was spinning his speech about "the blunders" in the execution of the war. My question: Senator Kerry do you support the idea of a preemptive war of choice ...even when "the enemy" poses no treat to the safety and security of the American people?


"Our military has done everything that has been asked of them. It is time to bring them home."
