Bush Administration is with The Terrorists
“You’re either with us or you’re with the terrorists.” — George W. Bush.
“The only people who want us in Iraq are Iran and al-Qaida. And I talked to a top-level commander the other day and he said China wants us there also. Why? Because we’re depleting our resources ... our troop resources and our fiscal resources. The war on terrorism is worldwide. In Iraq, it’s a civil war.” — John Murtha, Congressman and former Marine Colonel.
Well, there you have it. We know whose side Bush is on.
Murtha was responding to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who said the war in Iraq is going “very, very well.”
Murtha said “Why would I believe him? This administration, including the president, has mischaracterized this war for the last two years ... So why would I believe the chairman of the Joint Chiefs when he says things are going well?”
He said Iraqis would be more able to root out terrorists after U.S. troops leave their country. “I’m convinced they know where they are, they know who they are. But they won’t tell us because they’ve turned against us. We’ve lost the hearts and minds of the people.”
He also said “We have a situation where our military is in such bad shape, it couldn’t deploy to a second front. And the Iranians know this. North Korea knows it. China knows it. We’re depleting our resources in Iraq.”
And on top of all this, the American public still identifies Republicans as better able to protect us against terrorism.
Hellllooo!!!!! Anybody home???????
