Skip to comments.Senator Dick Durbin waiting for soldiers to die.
Posted on 06/15/2006 8:52:54 AM PDT by SE Mom
This morning's newspaper informs us that we have lost 2,493 of our best and bravest young men and women serving this United States in Iraq. I asked a member of my staff to check when we lost 2,000 soldiers, and the date was October 25 of last year. It appears that in a very short period of time, we will pass the 2,500 mark. At the time that we recorded the 2,000th military death in Iraq, I asked, along with other Senators, for a moment of silence on the floor of the U.S. Senate to acknowledge their great contribution to our country and in respect for their memory. When the time comes that 2,500 have given their lives, I will make that same unanimous consent request. Since there are no Republican Senators on the floor at this moment, I won't make it at this time, but I want the majority to know that I think, on a bipartisan basis, Senators from both parties should come to the floor when we have recorded the 2,500th death in Iraq and observe a moment of silence in memory of our fallen warriors and in prayer for their families whose lives will never be the same because of their loss.

He further (no doubt in anticipatory glee) said he will call for a moment of silence in the Senate when the death of # 2,500 is announced.
How much clearer can he be? It appears he cannot wait for this event- he is already planning for the political impact, and looking forward to exploit it to his aims.
Imagine, if you can, being a GI in Iraq today. Imagine hearing that a senator from your country is counting the days til the death of your 2,500th comrade.
If anyone else finds this gesture on the part of Senator Durbin to be as gruesome and disgusting as I do- please contact the senator's office.

Who has any doubt that the DUmocrats and Al Queda are on the same side? The DUmocrats were up in arms about the "wire tapping" program because they were afraid their daily DNC talking point fax might be intercepted.
The DUmocrats are EXACTLY like the terrorist without the IED's.
What doed Durbin have to say about the "2" who were murdered by an Islamonazi American who had enlisted (Sgt. Akbar)?
Does he still blame President Bush for their deaths?
Good catch. What a worthless POS is Dick Durbin. I'd like to see this sent to Rush and Hannity.
Time Magazine WAS in contact with terrorists. The journalists don't like to have their treason called into question.
You mean 2,493 Nazi-esque, Stalinesque, Khmer Roughe-esque monsters in uniform, Senator Turban?
This guy is the sorryist Senator Illinois has ever had. If we re-elect him, then we are the sorryist of states.
Mr. "I support the troops but not the war" Dick Durbin. Useless.
The way Durbin discusses the LIVES of our military- as though we're about to go over the 11,000 mark on the Dow..it just enrages me.
Rush is right again: the Democrats are invested in defeat.
This guy is filth.
I emailed Durbin the turbin.
I suggest you all do it.
Funny, I don't recall Durbin offering a resolution congratulating our military on the success in hastnening the arrival of a meeting for Zark and his 72 virgins.
GOOD for you- this man is exploitive in a truly disgusting way.
Ghoulish Turdbin *ping*
Any Dems or libs gonna call for a LA pull out timetable??
(those crickets I hear?)
Well- I'm sure he's got his publicity machine ready to roll...the wheels of it are greased with the blood of our soldiers..
