The war in Iraq is as much a psychological war as a kinetic war. It is being fought daily in the press, on television and radio, and here on the Internet. The intent of the enemy, Al Queda and others is to break our will. They have, unfortunately, found political allies among many in the Democratic party who see an opportunity for gaining political power by exploiting the casualties suffered in the kinetic aspects of the war.

Our military won the 1st stage when they defeated the Iraqis in the spring of 2003. We are now engaged in what we call the "three block war" wherein we are simultaneously fighting to maintain peace and stability while helping democratic minded people to establish themselves, and fighting to defeat terrorist and former regime "die hards" who still believe they can regain control if they are ruthless enough. They know that they have politically oriented allies here in the US for their psychological campaign. They will continue as long as we are there. They opened a second front just this week when they had some "detainees" complain to the press that they had been tortured by the new Iraqi government forces.

John Murtha has been defeated in the psychological war. They have made the pain of attrition so great for him that he has said he will do whatever it take to get relief, not in so many words of course, but that is the reality of his statements. Murtha, and his fellow Democrats are truly "Sunshine Soldiers" who will be there if it looks like we are winning easily but will run and hide if they are "uncomfortable".

A little while ago I heard Andrea Mitchell state that "many" in the military are against the war and that it was only supported by the "chicken-hawks" in the administration... great psyop tool but while many in the administration did not serve there is no proof that "many" military personnel in the country oppose the war. Her statement was typical MSM propaganda, put a lie and a truth together and voila! both are true.

The "Winter Soldiers" must stand together and fight for right. Do not let the bastards wear you down!

Jack Murtha was one of two people who voted for Charlie Rangel's Draft Bill (H.R. 163, introduced Jan 7, 2003), back in 2004. Please look at Roll Call Vote 494, held on 5 Oct 2004.

Only he and Pete Stark voted for it. The bill sponsor (Rangel) and the remainder of the co-sponsors (incl. Conyers, Jackson-Lee, etc.) did not vote for the bill they sponsored!

Another self-proclaimed Marine officer has weighed in in an email to me (below). He can be reached at


I listened to what Murtha said. Did you? I never heard all the crap about retreat and other right wing rhetoric that you conveniently put into your article. Why is it that you folks on the right can't just realize that other people who are just a frigging patriotic as you can believe differently.

Only and idiot or a total partisan will continue to hold onto an idea or approach when it is not working and people are dying because of its failings.

Vermin? Your use of this word alone, tells me what a right wing hate monger you must be.

I am embarassed as a careerr Marine by your comments. This war should never have been fought. It was planned stupidly by the Bush administration who ignored senior military advice. Our Marines and Soldiers are dying because this adminstration was more concerned about the "New American Empire" and oil than WMDs or Iraqi freedom and still today won't re-evaluate how we should be fighting it.

I guess you think we should have stayed in Vietnam also. Why bother if both wars are based on lies and real Americans are dying for the the greed of a few rich Republicans. When this is over and Cheney can collect his blind trust from Haliburton..... while the families of the dead Marines will grieve forever for their fallen loved ones--

You may be suprised how many Marines support Murtha.

General Smedley Butler said it best: War Is A Racket - Read the book Gunny. You might learn more about why we are in Iraq.

Count me as another Marine who is embarrassed by this fraud. Last year he said we can't win. This year he says we have won, let's go home, but any year he is still a Democrat so party is more important than country to him.

I was not a Marine, but I feel for you guys, and will remind you that even Jesus was betrayed by a Judas.

Gunny, I don't believe for a second he was a Marine, but more likely he was a keyboard commando.

I'm ticked, too! It doesn't take more than about 5 minutes to research Murtha, and he's been against the war for some time. His "coming out" press conference was nothing new. Then you have the Clintoon's recent statements, and Demoncrat shills in the MSM playing up both "events" for all they are worth. Just look at some of the articles and look at how they stress Murtha's experience, initial vote for the war, and military service. It's all an attempt to inflate his credibility.

I heard you last night, Gunny. You were on fire, man! Like Harry Truman said, you're just tellin' the truth and they think it's hell!

I missed Vietnam, served in the Jimmuh Carter military. A whole other story, there. But for months I've had a knot in the pit of my stomach that the Rats and MSM will not stop until they do the same thing to the military now they did in Vietnam, and turn a victory into a defeat.

Apparently, the only thing Murtha learned from Vietnam was how to lose a war on the home front.

Your comments on the nature of leadership, at 38, are right on the mark. This clown, regardless of rank, cannot be considered a leader.

You know what...I do feel sorry for him. His record as a marine is being used to further the leftist agenda and it has severely impugned him.

My Murtha column just shot to #1 on page 1 of Google when you type in "Murtha traitor."

Thanks, gang. Well done, Tony.
