Skip to comments.A Traitor's Tirade: Rep. John Murtha Soils The Corps (Gunny Bob)
Posted on 11/17/2005 6:14:19 PM PST by Stultis
In a statement that has angered, embarrassed and humiliated Marines around the globe, one of our own -- a retired Marine Corps Reserve colonel -- has called for the legendary fighting force to retreat from Iraq and surrender to the terrorist organization that has killed thousands of Americans at home and abroad. He has even called for the United States to enter into negotiations with al Qaeda. This vermins demand for retreat, surrender and negotiations with the enemy is so committed to assisting al Qaeda in their efforts in Iraq that he has posted his unspeakable demands on his website in the form of an official statement.
The traitor, Democratic Rep. John P. Murtha, agrees 100% with Osama bin Laden and Abu Musab al Zarqawi that the Marine Corps, which is mangling the enemy on a daily basis in Iraq and suffering comparatively light casualties, should lay down its arms, call it quits, and abandon the people they are defending in the fledgling democracy of Iraq.
Furious Marines from wars as far back as World War II are spitting mad at the cowardly colonel and many want his head on a stake in the middle of the Marine Corps Commandant's lawn. Personally, I would not soil that good earth with so vile and despicable a piece of offal.
Encouraging retreat is viewed as aiding the enemy by the Marines and is a violation of Article 104 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, which is punishable by death. Currently serving Marines, active duty or reserve, who encourage surrender are in violation of Article 100 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, an offense also punishable by death. Because Murtha is retired, he is virtually assured of not being prosecuted.
However, he will be celebrated by al Qaeda and other terrorists around the world. At this very moment, al Qaeda communications specialists are likely prepping pieces of propaganda using Murthas traitorous tirade as a tool to recruit fresh killers by showing them that even an American Marine (apologies to Puller) believes his allegedly beloved Corps is so inept in battle that retreat and surrender are the Marines best option and perhaps should, in fact, be added for the first time to the Leathernecks vast, quasi-mythical repertoire of operational art and battlefield strategy.
Murtha joins the likes of traitor Clayton Lonetree, the Marine security guard who gave top-secret intelligence to the Soviets, and traitor Robert Garwood, the Marine who went over to the enemy during the Vietnam War and was involved in holding and abusing US prisoners of war in North Vietnam while wearing the uniform of the enemy.
The Marine Corps is famous for its members standing their ground and winning fights against outrageous odds. Battles with names like the Peking Legation, Belleau Wood, Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Iwo Jima, the Chosin Reservoir, Khe Sanh and Fallujah decorate the hallowed halls of Corps history. Especially repugnant is how Murtha is insisting upon surrender while the Marines are decimating the enemy en masse.
Marines should ask Murtha if Chesty Puller would order retreat and surrender before the enemy.
John "The Jellyfish" Murtha should be shunned by all Marines and, if possible, legal steps should be taken to prevent this betrayer from being buried in a national cemetery upon his demise.

I'm not a former Marine, and even I am embarassed for the corp, based on Murtha's comments.
I can't be too angry at a person who appears to be verging on instability.
This vermins demand for retreat, surrender and negotiations with the enemy is so committed to assisting al Qaeda in their efforts in Iraq that he has posted his unspeakable demands on his website in the form of an official statement.
You have to understand that Murtha isn't an American, he is a DemocRAT.
Most Marines will NOT see a Democrat speaking...
We see a former Marine speaking, and that is what we find so unforgiveable..
Good evening and the very best to you and yours.
Raise your hand up high and give the universal sign (Proudly...)
My wife got so mad she shut it off and changed channels. - tom
Thanks for the ping. I guess being a politician (especially a RAT) trumps being a Marine for some people. This guy is just another sellout.
While I do agree that Mutha sucks, his statement doesn't seem to be a call for retreat directed at the military. It's more along the lines of "bring our troops home" stuff. He isn't saying that any soldiers should cut and run, but rather that the President should order them to leave Iraq.
As a former Army Cannon Cocker, I share your feelings to the max.
Because we in Congress are charged with sending our sons and daughters into battle, it is our responsibility, our OBLIGATION to speak out for them. Thats why I am speaking out.
Our military has done everything that has been asked of them, the U.S. can not accomplish anything further in Iraq militarily. IT IS TIME TO BRING THEM HOME.
To Representative John P. Murtha (D-PA 12th District)
Sir, speaking as one former Marine to another it's with great dismay that I find you have chosen to advocate a 'cut & run' policy on Iraq. That is exactly the wrong signal that we should be sending our terrorist foe. In fact it is so wrong it borders on treasonous.
Your words, today, are giving our enemies aid and comfort and demoralizing our fine young servicemen and women serving in harms way in Iraq and Afghanistan. I'm not sure what happens to people who aspire to be politicians and then end up in Washington, especially those that get re-elected time and time again ... but somewhere along the line they lose all sense of propriety, they become enamored with themselves and lose touch with everyday America. You, sir ... are completely out of touch. You should dig deep and find any remaining vestiges of the honor you once had as U.S. Marine and resign.
Yeah, it's sad, and you can bet the farm some leftists have been working on him for a long time.
I hear that even Mothra ashamed by these comments.
and... a true son of the South. Buried in a VA church grave yard where he could be the most senior officer there. #2? A Confiderate Gen.
Always faithful?? John Murtha... I think not!
