The Gentleman from Pennsylvania can’t seem to stop babbling.
American presence in Iraq is more dangerous to world peace than nuclear threats from North Korea or Iran, Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., said to an audience of more than 200 in North Miami Saturday afternoon.
A former Marine and a prominent critic of the Bush administration’s policies in Iraq, Murtha reiterated his views that the war cannot be won militarily and needs political solutions. He said the more than 100,000 troops in Iraq should be pulled out immediately, and deployed to peripheral countries like Kuwait.
“We do not want permanent bases in Iraq,” Murtha told the audience. “We want as many Americans out of there as possible.”
For the good of the country, the Democrats need to relieve Jack Murtha of his seat and send him to a nice home where he can play checkers on the patio, sit in the TV room to watch the Price is Right, and eat salisbury steak every other Thursday night.
