How Dare You!

That should be our permanent response to this pathetic, ridiculous, "you don't support the troops" talking point. I am getting so sick and tired of the same old rhetoric coming from the same old people. Bohner actually had the nerve today to claim that Murtha's bill to insure that the troops get proper equipment, training, and a year off between deployment, was hurting the troops. This lie they have been perpetuating for 4 years now has gone beyond absurd. Olbermann reported tonight that 10 billion dollars in Iraq war money is unaccounted for. This is in addition to the 12 Billion in Iraqi money that is missing. This 10 billion is in U.S. tax dollars. But, you go to war with the army you have not the army you want right? Reminds me of the line in Batman Begins where Morgan Freeman tells Christian Bale that "The government didn't think a soldiers life was worth a $100,000" when he was asked why the high tech body armor Batman uses was never put into production.
It was Republicans who cut Veterans benefits, cut combat pay, cut housing subsidies, and cut disabled Veterans benefits. It's Republicans who think that what lowers a soldiers moral is 70% of America wanting them to come home to their families. Hey freepers, want to know what lowers a soldiers moral? Hearing that "you go to war with the army you have not the army you want" lowers morale. Hearing that "Money trumps peace" lowers morale. Fighting next to a guy who is making 5 times as much money as you are lowers moral. Getting ready to get on a plane home and then being told you have just been re-deployed hurts moral. Not knowing who the enemy is lowers morale. Having most of the soldiers and commanders say "more troops won't help" and then sending them anyway, hurts morale. Not having proper armor hurts morale, especially when 10 Billion dollars is missing. Listening to Virgina Congressman Virgle Goode claim today on the floor that if we pull out of Iraq we will have a green flag with a sickle and star flying over the White House and our money will say In Mohammad We Trust on it is probably not good for morale. Basically what Goode said was our military is so bad and our country so weak that if we pull out of Iraq our military won't be able to defend us from the terrorists and that we will become an Islamic nation. All I can say to that asshole is HOW DARE YOU! Say it folks, and keep saying it. They may have no shame but that doesn't mean we should ignore their shameful behavior. HOW DARE YOU!
