Sergeant Will Whitley who is in Iraq had this to say
about Congressman Murtha's recent comments:
I’m not sure, but I think as you are reading this I (an American soldier) am speaking for myself…are you listening Congressman? The United States military is still part of the voting population last time I checked, and the elected officials that I voted for are speaking for me. Murtha also said that he had gotten e-mails from World War II veterans and parents of American soldiers in Iraq, but where are the e-mails from the soldiers who are on the ground in Iraq…could it be because we don’t share his same opinions?
Murtha also said at another press conference, "We cannot win this militarily. Our tactics themselves keep us from winning." Our tactics militarily are just fine. It’s the political war that is being lost right now by Rep. Murtha, as evidenced by the landslide 403-3 vote in the Senate this past Friday to pull troops out of Iraq. After the vote Murtha said, "The guys in Congress are scared to death to say anything because they might be vilified." Either the rest of Democratic Party doesn’t agree with his views on the war or they just don’t have a tour in Vietnam to hide behind.
does anyone want to suggest Sergeant Whitley isn't speaking for himself?
