Was it not ABSCAM Murtha who whined about the troops being overstressed and murdering Iraqis because they were undermanned?
"We're overextended worldwide, ... We have too small an Army for the job that we're doing, yet we can't increase the size of the Army because it's volunteer and we can't enlist anybody."
Was it not tax cheat Rangel who said we needed to reinstate the draft because troop levels were too low?
"If we're going to challenge Iran and challenge North Korea and then, as some people have asked, to send more troops to Iraq, we can't do that without a draft."
Was it not the Democrats who slammed Bush 43 over and over about this issue? (Of course they opposed the surge in order to LOSE in Iraq and embarass Bush 43, once again putting troop's lives in second place to scoring political points).
WASHINGTON — House Democrats on Friday sent President Bush the clearest message to date on his Iraq policy by passing a resolution that opposes a plan to send an additional 21,500 troops to the war-ravaged country. "Today, in a loud voice, the Congress of the United States said to the president: 'We need a new direction in Iraq,'" said House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., after the 246-182 vote.
So did we not have enought troops to put more in Iraq to secure victory or was the Left playing with the lives of the troops by denying support in order to embarass Bush 43?
Chopping the missile shield.
Surrendering our nukes in a treaty the Russian DUMA refused to ratify.
Allowing Iran to develop nukes.
Letting the NorK's fire on an ally and doing nothing.
It seems that General Barry ain't got a clue, but then, what else is new.
The Gunny wonders how much we could save by chopping welfare parasites vice troops levels. Probably a helluva lot MORE than 15.6B a year over the next five years.
It's simply amazing that one of the actual REQUIREMENTS IN the US Constitution, for the Federal government, has Sir Golfsalot's brain AWOL. But then again, it's more fun seizing control of GM and firing CEO's and playing golf than actually ensuring the national security of America.
