Paying for the Surge Troops (re-post)

 
Originally posted by LittleBill on Wednesday, February 28, 2007

If I remember correctly, the Great Divider decided to start the Troop Surge deliberately before the new Congress took office in January. This has been his dare to the new Congress to vote to refuse to finance those troops.

How would it be if the Congress took him up on the dare and voted to cut off the money? Let’s see if they have the courage and if the Great Divider has the guts to make that ego trip on his own and at the expense of the military forces.

I'd settle for a non-binding resolution of censure telling the truth: The president fixed the intelligence and lied us into a costly and unnecessary war which he is too chickenshit to admit.

While I still have faith that the new congress will rein in the Ferret, I'm leaving Iran out of the equation for right now, I too would settle for a non-binding resolution of censure Messenger.

To stop our Vietnam quagmire, Congress voted to cut off funding. What is wrong with this Congress? That is what is so scary as opposed to the 60s. These guys don't seem to react to anything anyone says or does. They just keep rolling ahead...smashing everything in their path.

They can't pay for the surge. They can't even pay for what we got over there, and what gets wounded. This V.A. scandal is not getting the people responsible fired. This goes right to the top. It's Bush and Cheney who went into Iraq on the cheap. They skimped on every thing, especially taking care of the wounded. Far from supporting the troops; they treat the troops as so much cannon fodder. They're the ones who should be fired. It's their budgeting that's responsible for our wounded vets landing on skid row.

This thing at Walter Reed's & the V.A. is this year's Katrina/New Orleans. This cannot be handled by firing the mid-level military administrators, even without atta-boys. This is Bush's fault. The buck falls on his desk.

Cheap, cheap, and cheap. That's how we did this war. That's how we cared for our troops.

This surge is non sustainable. Its proponents are grasping for thin straws. Here's my final offer.

Your offer sucks.
