How Democrats "Support The Troops"

Harry Reid, senate majority leader had this to say about the war in Iraq:

The war in Iraq "is lost" and a US troop surge is failing to bring peace to the country, the leader of the Democratic majority in the US Congress, Harry Reid, said Thursday.


"I believe ... that this war is lost, and this surge is not accomplishing anything, as is shown by the extreme violence in Iraq this week," Reid said, on the same day US President George W. Bush was giving a speech at an Ohio town hall meeting defending the war on terror.

Can we question their patriotism yet?

Here's a question, did democrats ever want to "win" the war? Is it just a knee jerk reaction to root against your own country? What's most disgusting is the glee and joy that each and every American soldiers death brings to democrats.

After the war, then what? Will we show respect to the men and women who so faithfully served? It will be a wonderful day when all is peaceful again. I pray for the military every day and know others who also pray that they will be safe. We need their protection and bravery although we don't understand how they feel while on the front lines. They are doing a great service for ALL this country even if some don't appreciate them.

The democrats don't know how to support the troops and they don't know the meaning of patriotism. All they know is how to keep degrading them.

I have a two-part question for all my friends here at the Infidel who support the Iraq war in its current form, and I'd appreciate real answers - not just patriotic sentiments directed towards our military that I'm sure we all share:

1. Are you folks truly happy with the progress being made in Iraq? If so, which specific examples make you optimistic about the future of Sunni/Shia/Kurd relations?

2. If you're not quite as satisfied with the results we've seen thus far, what would you suggest we try instead?

I'm legitimately curious, guys. Hopefully you know me enough by now to know I'm not confrontational for the sake of being confrontational. I'm simply a guy who doesn't see this war the same way you folks do. If you really believe in patriotic solidarity, then help me understand this.

April 10,2004 was the point at which instant gratification won out in the Democratic Party. It was when Ted Kennedy said the words "Shamefully we have reopened Saddam's torture chambers under new managment...US management". Look and read and you will the Democrats lost their will to win when they saw it as an election issue. If Bush succeeds, Democrats lose politically. It is that simple. There will be a lot of lies and spin to get a Democrat in the White House

Democrats want us to lose the war in order to try to make their party look more appealing. They will stoop to any means to accomplish their warped needs.

Les: I SUPPORT THE TROOPS.
I SUPPORT AND RESPECT THE PRESIDENT AND THE ELECTED OFFICIALS OF THIS COUNTRY.
1. No, I'm not happy with the progress being made in Iraq and I believe that our president is trying new solutions to bring it to a close.
2. I cannot offer any suggestions as to what should be changed as I'm not a military person. I've listened closely to the latest general assigned to Iraq and he states that we need a political solution and I'm sure one will found, hopefully soon.
I will continue to pray for our leaders to find the answers and for the brave military men and women.

Don't like reading hate-filled remarks about the servicemen. As I have said in the past, this is a time to help, not hinder what the troops are doing.

How can anyone have such contempt for the ones serving their country and protecting our lives? The democrat party is more dangerous with each passing day.

I have always believed it is right to respect our troops. They are over there to help us, not hinder us.
