Short version. Damn that Murtha and his party for insisting on sending troops that are fully trained and properly equipped into a battlezone instead of being herded into the sandpit like dazed sheep at the slaughterhouse. And curse him for asking that the battle weary soldiers be given reasonable deployment criteria, appropriate rest periods and the guarantee that tours of duty won't be extended into infinity against their will. Because, everyone knows exhausted soldiers fight better and they have to got to fight until we win or die trying. Not that we hopeful Republicans can actually define victory, but we'll know it when we see it and we'll let you know when we get there.Which I figure will no doubt be about the time the US goes bankrupt from passing out most of our revenues to the military contractors these guys invested in and is left defenseless by a completely depleted military.
Correction: *The memory plays tricks on us old people. I had to google the darn quote after Tobacco Joe commented. It wasn't Jack at all, but rather Dean Esmay who made that remark.
