Yellow-bellied Murtha Follows Osama Talking Points
In the same week when US forces uncovered documents that tell how Abu Musab "Worm Fodder" Zarqawi himself saw the Iraqi terrorists as losing the fight against Iraqi and US forces, we now have the yellow-bellied former Marine Jack "Ass" Murtha (D-PA) hailing Ronald Reagan's retreat from Beirut and Billy Bob Clinton's retreat from Somalia as a model for how the US should react in Iraq:
The thing that disturbed me and worries me about this whole thing is we can't get them to change direction. And I said over and over in debate, if you listen to any of it, in Beirut President Reagan changed direction, in Somalia President Clinton changed direction, and yet here, with the troops out there every day, suffering from these explosive devices, and being looked at as occupiers — 80 percent of the people want us out of there — and yet they continue to say, "We're fighting this thing." We're not fighting this. The troops are fighting this thing. That's who's doing the fighting.That was Jack "Ass" Murtha on the Situation Room with Wolf "Blitzed" Blitzer of CNN. Here's what Osama has said about "changing direction" in Somalia:
"After leaving Afghanistan, the Muslim fighters headed for Somalia and prepared for a long battle, thinking that the Americans were like the Russians," bin Laden said. "The youth were surprised at the low morale of the American soldiers and realized more than before that the American soldier was a paper tiger and after a few blows ran in defeat. And America forgot all the hoopla and media propaganda ... about being the world leader and the leader of the New World Order, and after a few blows they forgot about this title and left, dragging their corpses and their shameful defeat."Hat tip to Stephen Sprueill at The Media Blog for the comparison.
Recently, as I was pondering my options here in the People's Republic of Maryland, I was thinking about moving to Pennsyltucky. But as long as congressional district in that state continues to send that worthless sack of cowardly bull manure back to Congress, I'll stick with the known quantities of sacked up bull manure here in Maryland.
Hell, with Congressment like Jack "Ass" Murtha, who needs the French?
