2 GOP senators urge new Iraq strategy
By NEDRA PICKLER, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON - Two leading Republican senators called Sunday for a new strategy in Iraq, saying the situation in getting worse and leaving the United States with few options.

Sens. Chuck Hagel of Nebraska and John Warner of Virginia are part of the growing list of Republicans who are speaking out against President Bush's current plan for Iraq as U.S. casualties rise.

Growing list? Oh, you mean McCain and now these 2, and they are not speaking out against Bush's plan..but they have to give that tone before giving the information so it slants the thinking of the reader.

"The American people are not going to continue to support, sustain a policy that puts American troops in the middle of a civil war," Hagel said on CNN's "Late Edition."

Duh.....do you think?

Hagel said he agreed with Warner, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, who said after a recent visit to Iraq that Iraq was "drifting sideways." Warner has urged consideration of a change of course if the Iraq government fails to restore order over the next two months or three months.

Warner said Sunday he stands by that assessment, and even in the week since his trip to Iraq, there has been an "exponential increase in the killings and the savagery that's going on over there."

Exponential? REALLY Senator....care to elaborate? Never mind, the media wouldnt print it even if you did

"You can see some movement forward, but a lot of movement back," Warner said on "Face the Nation" on CBS. "We have to rethink all the options, except any option which says we precipitously pull out, which would let that country fall into a certain civil war at that time, and all of the neighboring countries would be destabilized."

Well...that makes PERFECT sense...seriously, so at least he has that going for him

Bush told reporters last week that he invites a change in strategy if the plan isn't working. But he also said the U.S. will not leave until the job is done.

THERE IT IS! The sentaors are not "part of the growing list of Republicans who are speaking out against President Bush's current plan for Iraq as U.S. casualties rise." But instead agreeing with the President that there are changes in strategy to be made.
Hagel said it is time to change course, but "our options are limited."

Really? Lets hear that from Gen Casey in the field, and what he will do about it, then you can talk out of your ass like politicians do and pat yourself on the back for having such a BRILLIANT idea.

"We need to find a new strategy, a way out of Iraq, because the entire Middle East is more combustible than it's been probably since 1948, and more dangerous," Hagel said. "And we're in the middle of it."

No thanks to the dhimmicats yelling for cut, run and surrender for the past 3 years.

Democrats long have urged a change in Iraq policy. Sen. Carl Levin (news, bio, voting record) of Michigan, the leading Democrat on the Senate Armed Services Committee, said there is "no military solution to this conflict" and the United States must pressure Iraqis to take over their country.

Um...NO..the dhimmicrats have NOT long urged a "Change" in Iraq Policy...they have, since day 2 advocated cutting, running and surrendering...saying anything else just sugar coats what the reporter is trying to convey

"If they're going to have a civil war, they're going to have to do it without us," Levin said on CNN. "This is long overdue. We've got to focus Iraqi leadership attention on this by telling them we need to begin a phased redeployment of American troops from Iraq within the next few months."

Translation, "We need to tell the Iraqis we will be cutting and running in the next few months if we win the house and senate"

Also Sunday, Rep. John Murtha (news, bio, voting record), a decorated Marine veteran who favors withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraq, criticized Republicans for referring to him and other war opponents as "Defeatocrats."

We call em as we see them Traitor!

In an opinion piece for The Washington, Murtha said Vice President Dick Cheney, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld and others in the White House have called Iraq war opponents appeasers and pessimists and labeled Democrats the "cut and run" party.

Yep...that is because that is all we hear from them, and never do we hear of a plan how they would protect america.

"It's all baseless name-calling, and it's all wrong," wrote Murtha, D-Pa. "Unless, of course, being a Defeatocrat means taking a good hard look at the administration's Iraq policy and determining that it's a failure.

Its not baseless..TRAITOR..its seeing that you are walking ALL OVER your fellow Marines who have now started turning their backs on you because you have stomped all over them. There is nothing wrong with looking at the administrations policies and determining, in your partys opinions, that they are failures....what is wrong is screaming that out while the enemy listens and watches, and not offering any solutions...JUST PROBLEMS.

"In that case, count me in. Because Democrats recognize that we're headed for a far greater disaster in Iraq if we don't change course — and soon. This is not defeatism. This is realism."

Ok..so offer up a solution Benedict. Dont just say that the President, Vice-President, Secretary of Defense, the house and the senate are failures...DO SOMETHING POSITIVE...OFFER AN ALTERNATIVE...WE ARE THERE, WE ARE NOT LEAVING UNDER PRESIDENT BUSH UNTIL OUR MISSION OF ESTABLISHING A STABLE DEMOCRACY IN IRAQ IS COMPLETE.

Murtha, a military hawk and close confidant of top military officials, surprised Washington last year when he called for pulling all troops out of Iraq within months.

Cut, run and surrender there Benedict.

Looking ahead to the Nov. 7 elections, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, Ken Mehlman, said "the American people aren't going to say in the face of war we need to be weaker, and in the face of economic challenge we need higher taxes and more regulations and more lawsuits. The Democrats have promised both."

Amen to that.

You know sometimes just reading this kind of tripe, makes my bloodpressure increase dramatically.

Growing list indeed. I'll tell them where they can stick their list.

I had a dream the other night that Murtha and company all got pissed off and moved to Cnada never to be heard from again. It was nice.
