    When Big John Murtha speaks this way I have to wonder when the other shoe will drop. There must be a catch

    Murtha should work harder to put his money where his mouth is.

    Someone astutely noted that these radical leftists would begin to move right, recognizing they they, in all probability would inherit this war on terror, and must be politically positioned for it. Murtha's political statements to this point have been atrocious, bordering on treason.

    This points out Murtha's lack of a moral compass. By golly, if you believe in something, stick by it. He is just like Romney. A ship without a rudder, driven by the wind. Not only is he guilty of treason, he is a liar to boot.

    How is Murtha guilty of treason? Sounds like a use of hyperbole.

    Because he goes beyond wanting to end the war, he and the Democrats take it to withholding money for present funding if they had the backbone or guts.

    If you are so fond of their policies, why do you support Ron Paul, a Republican? Maybe Dennis would line up with your ideals more.

    Congress holds the purse strings according to the U.S. constitution. I don't think that the U.S. constitution is treasonous.

    I'd prefer him to any of the Republicans running other than Paul and Thompson. At least Kucinich tells you what he thinks and doesn't hedge.

    aiding and abetting, giving comfort to the enemy, doing what he can to not support our troops, etc.

    accusations don't convict, only congress can do that.

    What he thinks is the problem.

    Being a sure fire loser in political race is a little like taking a drink, it removes normal inhibitions and loosens the tongue.:smilewinkgrin:

    Murtha has no credibility left.

    What he says about Iraq doen't matter at all.

    Disagreeing with you and President Bush's policies is not aiding and abetting and giving comfort to the enemy, nor is it not supporting the troops.

    If you have a problem with representative government, then there are other countries that have an authoritarian form of government where disagreement with the Leader is not permitted.

    I disagree, this EX- marine should be tried for treason. I demand it! He wrongly accused our soldiers of heinous crimes, without foundation.

    He should have put the blame where it belongs. On the neocons who believe anything goes in their quest for military and economic domination of the whole world. These are the people who should be tried for treason. Starting another undeclared war...nation building experiment on dubious if not outright fabricated evidence and putting us at even more risk by increasing the threat to our nation through the use of military intimidation and economically punishing those who disagree with their un American anti freedom globalist one worlder policies.

    He could have put the blame anywhere. Instead, he blamed the Marines and indicted them for cold blooded murder.

    Murtha's not a traitor. He's an idiot trying to score political points at the expense of the men on the battlefield.

    Being an idiot isn't a crime.

    Carpro's last post is 100% right on.

    Maybe treason or traitor is the wrong word, because he did not conspire with the enemy. However, this shows the kind of emotion someone like this brings out.

    This reminds us, and will we ever learn? One does not debate whether or how we got into a war after we are in it, one debates it before ever entering the war. Next time, maybe we will catch on.

    It is not the army or marines fault for any flawed decisions made. They are doing their job to protect us, and we are all forever in their debt.

    There is simply disagreeing with the President. And then there is giving aid and comfort to the enemy.

    Murtha does the latter.
