Bob Herbert on Jack Murtha

T r u t h o u t has reprinted in full Bob Herbert's NY Times Op-Ed piece on the Murtha debate. The drumbeat is getting louder, folks. When Condi Rice starts talking about troop withdrawal, you know the writing is on the wall. Herbert's conclusion is worth emphasizing (ah, but I fear I'm preaching to the choir): We need to cut our losses in Iraq. The folly of the Bush crowd and its apologists is now plain for all to see. Congressman Murtha is right, the war is not sustainable. Even Republicans in Congress are starting to bail out on this impossible mission. They're worried - not about the welfare of the troops, but about their chances in the 2006 elections.

To continue sending people to their deaths under these circumstances is worse than pointless, worse than irresponsible. It's a crime of the most grievous kind.

Amen. And, may I add, it would be nice to see the responsible parties punished for their crimes?

You see this? from http://www.sltrib.com/utah/ci_3260927

WASHINGTON - Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, flubbed Monday and referred to Iraq as Vietnam while commenting on Fox News against an immediate troop withdrawal.

"The Democratic Party seems to be taken over by the Michael Moore contingent in their attitude toward Vietnam, and they continually call for a withdrawal of troops at a time when we haven't finished the job," Hatch said on the network's morning show.

Hatch's spokesman acknowledged the error, which was first reported on the American Prospect Web log.
