Well, the esteemed senator from Illinois, Richard Durbin, is at it again with insane comments concerning our Iraq policy, this time using two brave soldiers that were horrifically executed by the barbarous thugs that seek to drive us out and create a civil war in Iraq.
The erstwhile senator said that the two soldiers horrific death is a direct result of the failed policy in the Iraq theatre in the War Against Terror.
So to understand the logic that Mr. Durbin applies, if a police officer dies in the line of duty say doing a drug bust, is that in vain because we are not winning the War On Drugs?
Or if an officer is killed by a drunk driver, is it in vain because there are still drunk drivers and we will never be able to completely stop drunk driving?
Well, at this point, we do not have total control in Iraq. These brave soldiers DID NOT DIE IN VAIN! They died to help a people that have long suffered under the rule of the Butcher of Baghdad, Saddam Hussein.
But to follow the lead of Mr. Durbin and allies such as the 2004 presidential election loser, Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass), Sen. Russell Feingold (D-Wis), we should just set a date and whether or not Iraq is functioning and has a stable government, we should get all of our troops out.
The future Defense Secretary in a, God forbid, Democratic administration, C0ngressman John Murtha (D-Penn), said we could just redeploy troops to Kuwait, or Duabi or Saudi Arabia, oh wait we can't do that because Saudi Arabia wants us out of there. Oh well, we can just go to Okinawa according to Mr. Murtha when he was on Meet the Press last Sunday.
I know that Democrats just hate President Bush so much that they do not care who gets hurt in their quest to eventually impeach him because they actually believe that Mr. Bush not only "stole" the 2000 election, but 2004 as well.
I hope that fellow senators call Mr. Durbin to task for dragging the death at the hands of al-Queda in Iraq of two American soldiers who are actually in the front lines in the War Against Terror. Because men like Mr. Durbin are not worthy to be benchwarmers in the War Against Terror.
