Rep. Moran (D-VA) Accuses US Troops of "Ethnic Cleansing"
NRO ^ | Dec. 19, 2007 | Cliff May

Posted on 12/19/2007 6:02:25 PM PST by jdm

Yes, that headline is accurate. Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) said:

"Sure there’s less violence but that’s because we have ethnically cleansed most of Baghdad.”
Maybe Moran wants to bring Gen. Petraeus up on charges. His friends at MoveOn would be pleased. More (watch the video of his comments) here.

Moran is an enemy combatant. “W” should have picked him up long ago ~

This guy is even worse that Dennis Kucinich, who at least has the defense of insanity. I hope this gets the press coverage it deserves.

It’s remarks such as those that the Republicans can use in the election. Tie individual Democrats to Moron and his remarks. It’s like shooting fish in a barrel. WHY won’t the Republicans use the swords the Democrats hand them???!!!

Remember, this man is a Democrat.

This man represents over 500,000 people in his district, many of them Democrats who agree with him.

His accusatory words, aimed at our soldiers and their Commanders is an accusation of a War Crime.

Many Democrats in this country and especially so in the Bay Area, agree with him.

This man, his words, and those thousands of Democrats who agree with him, is an example of why I for one will never again vote for a democrat.

The Democrats are completely addicted to lying about and trashing the troops.

Then they wonder why so few veterans and members of the military have any use for them, even after they intone, "As I've said many times, I strongly support our fine men and women in uniform..."

Lincoln would have had him picked up and held at the federal prison at Point Lookout, MD.

That place was reegularly relieved of its prisoners by hurricane storm surges that washed over it.

“Sure there’s less violence but that’s because we have ethnically cleansed most of Baghdad.” Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA)

So now “WE” have genocided the Sunni, Shias, Arabs, Palestinians, Assyrians, Zoroastrians, and left only US troops there. There is common everyday stupid and then there is the extra special Moranic stupid.

It won't. Besides, we ethnically cleansed Iwo Jima too.

What goes through his mind? I know he has a large Muslim population in his district, and yes, we killed a bunch of Muslim terrorists, but to save a bunch of peaceful Muslims. It's not like Iraq is full of Jews and Christians.

Kill bad Muslims to save good Muslims, that's ethnic cleansing. I'll resist judging the motivation of his constituents.

In liberal minds, this is the only reasonable explanation for the drop in violence.

Get used to hearing it.

Next will be the Congressional hearings on the “ethnic cleansing” to confuse the sheeple. They undoubtedly will target Petraeus.

They simply cannot allow a victory in Iraq.

You know, every one of those Soldiers and Marines and Sailors and Airmen over there fighting for this country took an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic. One of these days, people are finally going to realize just how big a domestic enemy these traitorous bastards are, and somebody’s going to do something about it. I just hope it’s not too late to save the Nation when it finally happens.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with Moran, that couldn’t be cured by a very severe thrashing and final warning of worse to come if he doesn’t “get right with the force”...

Dear JDM;

Regret to inform that you have spelled his name incorrectly.

It's Jim Moron. I know; the news, official websites, and custom all conspire to suggest otherwise.

But really.

He's a Moron.

Hope this helps.
