We Must Stay The Course! - Lieberman

A Democratic Senator not grandstanding against the war, and not asking the immediate return of all troops from Iraq?

To quote Lieberman: "Here is an ironic finding I brought back from Iraq. While U.S. public opinion polls show serious declines in support for the war and increasing pessimism about how it will end, polls conducted by Iraqis for Iraqi universities show increasing optimism. Two-thirds say they are better off than they were under Saddam, and a resounding 82% are confident their lives in Iraq will be better a year from now than they are today. What a colossal mistake it would be for America's bipartisan political leadership to choose this moment in history to lose its will and, in the famous phrase, to seize defeat from the jaws of the coming victory.

The leaders of America's military and diplomatic forces in Iraq, Gen. George Casey and Ambassador Zal Khalilzad, have a clear and compelling vision of our mission there. It is to create the environment in which Iraqi democracy, security and prosperity can take hold and the Iraqis themselves can defend their political progress against those 10,000 terrorists who would take it from them."

Man this is good stuff which will NEVER see the light of day in the MSM! Despite the fact it is a U.S.Senator speaking on return from Iraq.....

This is a MUST READ!!!

The taste of this is fantastic, and his use of the "snatching defeat from the jaws of victory" should become the GOP line for the 2006 elections!


UPDATE: No MSM has yet picked up on this.....they are not sure the Lieberman statements are "newsworthy".....however, a congressman who finds he has broken the law is TOP news, as are several other items, including the current somebody-killed-somebody-in-Iraq stories!

My gosh, ever wonder why?
