Oh, How They Love Our Troops

Troop-basher John Murtha was on Hardball last night condemning the Marines for what he claims was the My Lai Massacre redux. When asked by Chris Matthews to explain what happened in Haditha, an Iraqi city, Murtha responded, “Well, I’ll tell you exactly what happened. One Marine was killed and the Marines just said we’re going to take care – we don’t know who the enemy is, the pressure was too much on them, so they went into houses and they actually killed civilians.” [WMV or MP4 Video via ETL]

And when asked if this action was like My Lai Murtha said, “That’s exactly right.”

With that reference Murtha is saying US Marines, in Iraq, raped and tortured civilians, killed hundreds of women and children, dragged people to a ditch and executed them. He then tried to blame what he claimed is a massacre on President Bush instead of sympathizing with the Marines who are at WAR.

This type of rhetoric is not uncommon for liberals. You might remember the former democratic presidential nominee, John Kerry, said soldiers in Iraq terrorized women and children. “There is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children and women.”

And then there's this form our Democratic friends:

Charlie Rangel said the war in Iraq is as bad as the holocaust.
Dick Durbin likened our troops to the Nazis.
John Murtha said the US Army is Broken.
Dennis Kucinich insinuated we purposely bombed innocent civilians in Afghanistan.

Hey, at least we know where they stand...And remember, don't question their patriotism.
