Democrats Supporting the Troops Again

Harriet Reid is on record saying the U.S. cannot win a war in Iran because we wasted our resources in Iraq. So much for the Democrats being tough on National Security. Putting aside the fact that Reid believes the U.S. can’t walk and chew gum at the same time, his statement reveals the Democrats inability to defend America and their zeal to score political points even if it means endangering the country.

The United States has troops stationed in Iraq, the country which borders Iran to the west. The United States has troops stationed in Afghanistan, the country which borders Iran to the east. Iran is surrounded with brave American troops, or as Reid would call them “resources”, ready to go at a moment’s notice if necessary. American military technology is second to none. Troops are reenlisting. America clearly has the ability, the manpower and resources to defeat Iran and Reid knows it.

Even assuming Harry the Body is right in his assertion America cannot win a war in Iran (he’s not), publicly saying so while the world is pressuring Iran to abandon its nuclear weapons program undermines all attempts for peaceful solution. Reid’s message that we couldn’t defeat Iran could deter potential allies. After all, who wants to join a war that can’t be won? Reid’s comments also provide a ray of hope to Tehran that the U.S. may not be able to win an armed conflict, encouraging them to continue their saber rattling.

Reid’s comments show that the Democrats are not only unfit to govern the country, but also unfit to serve as the loyal opposition.

Saith the article: “The Bush administration is relying too heavily on other countries in the international effort to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons, according to Sen. Harry Reid.”

So, we’re a unilateral nation that relies too much on other nations. Reid seems to be a bit off the reservation yet again.
