Harry Reid: The War Is Lost



On Monday I had LT Jason Nichols from AppealForCourage.Org on my program. The LT contacted me after I wrote this, and a buddy of his passed it on to him. He called from Iraq, and I mentioned that a certain presidential candidate had proclaimed the surge was a failure. The LT completely disagreed with that, and gave examples of why the surge was working. He also pointed out that we are only just getting the surge underway, and was emphatic that we WILL win. This is yet another case of my Senator (Reid) being completely detached from our military.

See Reid get ripped by Reno veterans here, and continuing to lie about withdrawal here.


"I believe ... that this war is lost, and this surge is not accomplishing anything, as is shown by the extreme violence in Iraq this week," Reid told journalists.

I wonder what those Reno vets would say about Reid's continuing to use the troops as political footballs?

Reid goes on to demonstrate his complete lack of history knowledge.

Reid drew a parallel with former US president Lyndon Johnson who decided to deploy more troops in Vietnam some 40 years ago when 24,000 US troops had already been killed.

"Johnson did not want a war loss on his watch, so he surged in Vietnam. After the surge was over, we added 34,000 to the 24,000 who died in Vietnam," Reid said.

First ... Iraq is a lot more like the British occupation of Ireland than Vietnam.

Second ... we won Vietnam with those extra troops Reid. If you have still been brainwashed by the myth of the loss in Vietnam see Operation Linebacker II. Anytime you bomb your enemy into accepting peace on your terms ... you win.

Reid has also forgot one very important factor in correlating Iraq and Vietnam ... S. Vietnam fell to N. Vietnam two years AFTER the US left the war. We bombed the north into the stone age, and completely destroyed their infrastructure, they accepted our terms for peace, and the Vietnam war came to an end. Two years later the US is not at war with the north, the north has rebuilt its infrastructure, and launches a new war against the south leading to the fall of Saigon. The correlation Reid needs to comprehend is that when you use force you get what you want, but when you leave an ally to fight a stronger enemy on their own ... the ally loses while you are embarrassed.

I'll leave you with one of my favorite quotes of all time:

"Congressmen who willfully take actions during wartime that damage morale and undermine the military are saboteurs and should be arrested, exiled, or hanged." - J. Michael Waller

Harry Reid is a first class asshat and does a disservice to everyone in armed forces of the US. He should have been walking the streets of Hit with my brother if he thinks the war is "lost".Reid is a fucking ignoramus that has turned into a defacto mouthpiece for Al-Qaeda. Thanks, Harry!
