Skip to comments.An Open Letter to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi (Charlie Daniels)

Dear Sir and Madam,
You have said often enough that you don't believe in the war in Iraq and that you want to bring the troops home. Yet all you do is talk and sign non-binding resolutions which only goes to show that you really don't mean what you say about ending the war or that you're just playing political games and in doing so giving aid and comfort to a dedicated enemy.
Now if you're serious about ending the war you have the means and the votes to do just that. Simply cut off the funding for the troops, bring them all home and the American people can transfer the deed to this war and the ramifications of what you do to the Democrat party and you can live with the results.
You say you support the troops, but that has to be a lie. If you supported them and you truly think the war is wrong, you'd bring them home or either dispense with the poisonous rhetoric and get in behind them and help them get the job done.
You can't have it both ways. If you support the troops do something. Your party won a majority in both houses, so you have control so take the responsibility.
Of course, I think you should remember that when the terrorists follow us home from Iraq and start their attacks on American soil it's too late, so you'd better have a plan to deal with it. Do you have a plan?
And if Iran goes into Iraq and makes it a staging ground for Al Qaida to plan and carry out attacks all over the western world you'll need to deal with that. Do you have a plan?
And if Iran decides to go into Kuwait and cut off the oil flow from the Persian Gulf, you'll need a way to make up for the shortfall. Do you have a plan?
The world would look at us as a country that has not finished a commitment to war since 1945. Do you have a plan for dealing with that?
The purpose of this letter is to call your bluff. I don't believe you have the guts to do anything but talk and talk is cheap. Oh you have no shortage of words but I seriously doubt the amount of backbone you have.
Do you really think that signing a non binding resolution is really fooling anybody into thinking you're anything less than career politicians trying to tip the scales of the O08 Presidential Election.
What you're doing is silly and dangerous. If you really don't like what's going on, change it, do something about it. You've got the power but have you got the guts?
Pray for our troops.
What do you think?
God Bless America Charlie Daniels February 16, 2007
I searched all over and did not see it posted...if it is a repost move on I do not want to hear about it.
This 'ol long haired country, boy digs it!
Someone email ol Charlie - we need a theme song - 'Have You Got A Plan?'
I like that .....
Country Boy Bump for Charlie!
Good stuff although I beleive Iran and al Qaeda are at odds because of the sunni / shiite thing.
My statement to ALL of the left which includes the media....STOP PERFORMING FELLATIO (ORAL SEX) UPON OUR ENEMIES!!!!
Mr. Daniels' points are all dead on.
Reid and Pelosi know that the Iraq War IS indeed winable.
Just look at the changes happening in Bagdad as the surge ramps up.Mookie Al Sad'r is on the run into a spider hole in Iran. Bush is rattling his saber at Iran, and indeed he should.
Reid and Pelosi do not want a REPUBLICAN to win the war in Iraq. That would mean that a Democrat president would NOT win in 2008.
The job of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi is to ensure that only a Democrat president wins the war in Iraq after 2008, at the risk of the deaths of hundreds, if not thousands of American soldiers and thousands of Iraqis.
Reid and Pelosi mean to pave the path to a Democrat Presidency with the blood and bones of American Soldiers and Iraqis.
Reid and Pelosi should be branded for the treasonous lame brains they really are:
Their political hatred of Republicans, spittle splashing cultural war pronouncements, and a lust for political power while damning all consequences, has placed the Democrat party beyond the pale. They are essentially UNAMERICAN. They divide our nation.
Pelosi and Reid deserve the very best flaying in public that can be given.
The time to start is NOW!
Well J F Skerry spent a year saying HE did, so maybe they can get it from him.
You can't have it both ways.
Well said, Mr. Daniels.
Plays a mean fiddle, too.
Charlie Daniels Bump!
This is a good article. Show this to your buddies.
"Red" America believes those in Congress who voted "yea" are traitors.
