GUNNY BOB'S COLUMN NOVEMBER 17, 2005:
A Traitor's Tirade: Rep. John Murtha Soils The Corps
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
John Murtha press release: http://www.house.gov/apps/list/press/pa12_murtha/pr051117iraq.html
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.
It's been this way for decades (since the 60's?). The socialists want to run this country. The Klintons, Kerry, Kennedy and the socialist Dems are all about surrendering to our enemies and the defeat of America as a superpower.
It IS time that we rally our forces against these traitors. We better do it now (or never) before it's too damned late. I'll say it again. If they can get away with this CRAP while we control all three branches, what the hell are they going to pull if/when they ever regain one or more branches of government? Socialists have taken over our schools/colleges, our media, and the unions that have power over our transportation and communication in this country. What are we waiting for? For them to take over our military too???
"Unfortunately we have two enemies in this war. The Islamo-fascist terrorists and the defeatist Democrats. We need to take the long view and be strong. We can win in Iraq by giving the Iraqis time to take over from us."
John Murtha is a Clinton-Heinz-Kerry do-boy.
Gunny, I'll make you an offer - I forget Murtha was ever a Marine and you forget Kerry was ever a Naval officer. Deal?
Murtha, like Hackworth, was a combat stud in his day. And, like Hackworth, I strongly suspect that he has gone soft in his old age. The only other possibility I can envision is that, like Goldwater, he lost his first wife and is now being kittywhipped by some young leftist pos.
Marine. Front and center
That's the sad part of this whole situation, based only on what I've heard, is that Murtha did serve with honor and distinction... unlike john kerry.
The Muslim world is rejoicing.
OBL and his sympathizers and supporters have stated long ago that America did not have the stamina to see this through and that his supporters needed to keep the faith.
Proving OBL right does nothing to stem the tide of Islamic fudamentalism - it only adds more fuel to the flame.
Winning or losing this war is not going to be done on the battlefield it will be done in the hearts and minds of the American people. Like Vietnam, our soldiers are up to the task but are we?
I guess half a man is better than none.
Those dates stand out to me because from Apr 67-May 68 I was at Nakhon Phanom, 56th AirCommando Wing.
Rep. Murtha Calls On Daughter to Immediately Withdraw From Pa. Home
I want to salute you and the Marines for raking Nancy Pelosis lap dog over the coals.
I think Pelousy was given some information from Murtha's FBI file to make him flip. Wonder who would have such information....especially the same week the Clintons have "changed their minds" about the war and need credibility from someone with ties to the military.
re: Victory is at hand
Isn't it sad that we've reached a point in America where a mainstream political party can openly call for the military defeat of our country and is not only supported, but encouraged, by the MSM?
