Democrats: “Surge is working… Quick! Pull out!” by American Elephant

Even top Democrat Senators and presidential candidates are being forced to admit that the surge is working:

Top Senate Democrats have started to acknowledge progress in Iraq, with the chairman of the Armed Services Committee yesterday saying the U.S. troop surge is producing “measurable results.”

Sen. Carl Levin of Michigan highlighted improved security in Baghdad and al Qaeda losses in Anbar province as examples of success — a shift for Democrats who have mainly discounted or ignored advances on the battlefield for weeks.

“The military aspects of President Bush’s new strategy in Iraq … appear to have produced some credible and positive results,” Mr. Levin said in a joint statement with Sen. John W. Warner, Virginia Republican, after a two-day visit last week to Iraq.

Mr. Levin joins a growing chorus of Democrats — including 2008 presidential hopeful Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York and Senate Majority Whip Richard J. Durbin of Illinois — who say the troop surge has produced benefits, but who also bemoan failures of the fledgling Iraqi government they have repeatedly criticized for taking an August vacation.

The Democrats’ reframing of the war debate helps them avoid criticism for naysaying U.S. military achievements while still advocating a speedy pullout from what they say is a civil war the Iraqi government cannot quell.

“It’s working,” Mrs. Clinton said of the troop surge yesterday in a speech at the Veterans of Foreign Wars national convention in Kansas City, Mo., a group at odds with her votes for a pullout and against emergency troop funding.

But Mrs. Clinton told the roughly 5,000 veterans that the new strategy came “too late” in the four-year-old war and it is time to bring U.S. troops home. [read more]

Soldier shows how he feels about Hillary

They want us to cooperate and have tea with fanatical terrorists and mortal enemies at the same time they want us to abandon and even attack fragile allies!

These people are insane with powerlust! They dont give a rats ass what the consequences are—all that matters to them is opposing whatever Bush says. They will destroy this country and throw the world’s most vital region into regional war and genocide in order to get power!

No wonder their approval ratings are the lowest ever recorded!

Please, call and write your representatives and tell them we must stay and support Iraq.
