As the Title suggests I am a vet, and proud of it, and proud of all those that wear the uniform of the United States of America. You name it we'll talk about it. Politics, sports and much more. However, I am also very interested in what is happening to this great country of ours, politically and socially...So SOUND OFF PRIVATE!!!

Terrorists Claim Major VICTORY in CONGRESS

This will probably be one of the shortest posts I have made since starting this Blog. Partially because of the anger that I feel, and more because there is little that can be done about it now. Today, the House of Representatives passed, narrowly, a bill that will require our troops to lay down their arms and tuck their tails between their legs and withdraw from Iraq.

True this bill has not become a law yet, it still has an up hill battle in the Senate and then it must be signed into law by the President. However, whether this bill makes it to the Presidents desk or not has sounded a troubling alarm. This gives the terrorists and their group a great victory, for they have once again broken the back of our military by defeating the Congress. Or should I say, they have persuaded their allies in the House to do their dirty work for them (as the cartoon above notes).

As a vet, I want to thank the Congress for their tireless effort in bringing defeat to our courageous troops. For without their help, victory just might have been around the corner. Now it is lost forever. Regardless as to whether this becomes law and timelines take place, our strength and power in the world has been smashed once again, as it was with Vietnam.
