Congressman John Murtha (Defeat--PA) on Sunday dismissed the notion by two long time Iraq war critics that the Iraq war was making a turn for the better:
"I dismiss it at as rhetoric," said US Representative John Murtha, a former marine, congressional heavyweight on military matters, and outspoken Iraq War critic.When it gets down to it, what else can Jihad Jack say? Ever since November, 2005, as a means of trying to make himself the darling of the kook anti-war, anti-American left in hopes of grabbing the majority leader position in the House, Murtha has hitched his wagon to the defeatist star.
"I don't know where they were staying. I don't know what they saw. But I know this: that it's not getting better," Murtha said on CNN television.
"It's over-optimist. It's an illusion," the Pennsylvania lawmaker continued
He can accept nothing but the unconditional surrender of the United States to third world thugs and savages.
Pretty sorry, isn't it, when a decorated Marine must hope against hope that the mission in which his Marine brethren are engaged, in which they have shed blood for, will be a failure.
There are few, if any things in this world more pathetic than that.
What a sorry, pathetic man Jack Murtha is!
