ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

Jack Murtha is a Jackass, Part Deux

Jack Murtha on ABC's This Week With George Snuffaluffagus. Audio here, fast forward to 12:00:

This is the most intensive combat I've seen since maybe some of the combat in Iwo Jima or some of those places in World War II. They can't take this kind of combat for an extended period.
Murtha is not only slandering the brave men & women serving our country by saying that they can't handle the operation in Iraq, but he goes on to slander past heroes who served in combat from the sands of Iwo Jima to sands of Iraqi Freedom.

Does Murtha not know about the sacrifices at Okinawa where from March to June 1945, the Allied forces had over 12,000 KIAs in the span of 85 days?

Is he seriously comparing the combat experienced by our heroes in Korea (where we lost 54,000 men over the span of 3 years?)

Or the brave men who paid the ultimate sacrifice in the jungles and rice paddies of Vietnam (to the number of over 58,000 KIA and 14,000 MIA) during the 10+ year conflict?

Jack Murtha is a Jackass... and it's amazing that the people of Pennsylvania's 12th Congressional District think that he's fit to represent them. Each and every time that he open's his mouth, he demonstrates that he has little grasp of reality.
