Slandering US Marines is pretty much par for the course in the Democratic Party. So much so, that I get sick to the stomach just thinking about how often they exploit the deaths of American Servicemen and how often they betray those charged with their protection. -To think that I once associated myself with the Democratic Party is very disheartening.
And what bothers me the most is not necessarily the words or the actions that they take. It's the state of anxiousness in which they wait to undermine the war effort. My pal TonyR hit the nail on the head when he likened these types of people to vultures. These so-called Americans are waiting to feed off dead troops; waiting to feed off of their dead bodies in the hope that it will help them, politically.
Vultures like John Murtha who couldn’t even wait for the evidence to be presented before he started blaming Bush for creating another My Lai massacre in Haditha Iraq. Seven days a week his face was all over the T.V. trying to use the incident to help the Dems' mid-term election chances. But now that all the charges against another Marine have been dropped, his fat mouth hasn't said one damn word.
Treachery is a serious offense against the nation. As a former Marine, John Murtha should have know better. He is a continuing disgrace to United States of America. He should have the courage to admit to his politically motivated treachery and resign immediately. Not only that, but he should also apologize, both privately and publicly, to the Marines and their families for betraying their service.
(BBC News) The US military has dropped all charges against one of the marines accused of involvement in the killing of Iraqi civilians in Haditha in November 2005.
L/Cpl Stephen Tatum, 26, was about to face a court martial on charges of involuntary manslaughter.
Prosecutors say that US marines indiscriminately killed 24 unarmed Iraqi civilians, including women and children, in the incident.
Five of the eight men initially accused have now had all charges dismissed. Jack Zimmerman, a defence lawyer for L/Cpl Tatum, said in a statement: "It became clear to the experienced prosecution team that the right thing to do was to dismiss all charges.
