So Pennsylvania Democrat Re. John Murtha wants to "immediately redeploy U.S. troops consistent with the safety of U.S. forces" and let the Iraqis fend for themselves.
Yes, let's keep our troops safe, by all means. Bring them home. Keep them safe.
We'd best ground the Air Force, too - it's not safe to fly those big jets. Keep the Navy in port - that water is deep and cold out there. It's not safe. Don't let the Army drive those tanks - what if they were to run over someone's foot? And for the love of safety lock up all those dangerous guns and missles and things.
We don't want anyone to get hurt. Especially not the men and women who have volunteered to go in harm's way to defend the rest of us. Let's all stay nice and safe.
Until the masked men come to our door with their beheading knives.
UPDATE: The new headline paints John "Cut-n-Run" Murtha as a "Hawkish" Democrat. He's a decorated Vietnam vet, a former Marine intel officer. How can he POSSIBLY want to visit upon the Iraqi people what the retreat from Vietnam visited upon Southeast Asia?
