    Murtha: US Staying in Iraq Helps Potential Enemies By Randy Hall Staff Writer/Editor July 21, 2006 ( - Pennsylvania anti-war Congressman John Murtha Thursday said the U.S. military's continued presence in Iraq is emboldening America's potential enemies by depleting American resources that could be used in other conflicts around the world. "Who wants us in Iraq? North Korea, Iran, China, Russia and al Qaeda," Murtha told a luncheon gathering in Washington, D.C. Those entities, he added, believe that "as a nation, we are distracted, and as a world superpower, we're depleting our resources." (See Video at article link above)...
