Get ready for the swift boating!

An influential House Democrat who voted for the Iraq war called Thursday for the immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, another sign of growing unease in Congress about the conflict.

"This is the immediate redeployment of American forces because they have become the target," said Rep. John Murtha, D-Pennsylvania, one of Congress' most hawkish Democrats. At times during his remarks to reporters, the decorated Vietnam War veteran and former Marine was choking back tears.

"It's Time For Them To Come Home" Representative John Murtha (D-PA), conservative Democrat, decorated Vietnam veteran, patriot, said those words today about our troops in Iraq. Murtha discussed his reasons with a gruff eloquence and with intelligence. Certainly persons of good faith can completely disagree with Murtha's assessment.

What they cannot do is question Murtha's patriotism. Murtha said "we have to do the right thing." And Murtha believes withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq is the right thing to do.

Vietnam Vet Murtha on Cheney: I like guys who got five deferments and (have) never been there and send people to war, and then don’t like to hear suggestions about what needs to be done.” (Via Nitpicker)

Get out the purple heart band-aids. These people are such bastards. I have had enough.
