Harry Reid Supports Terror, Death, & Destruction

It is this kind of talk by political leaders in the US, purposefully undermining US War Strategy, which increases violence in Iraq:

Iraq war is 'lost': US Democrat leader
Apr 19 02:45 PM US/Eastern

The war in Iraq "is lost" and a US troop surge is failing to bring peace to the country, the leader of the Democratic majority in the US Congress, Harry Reid, said Thursday.

"I believe ... that this war is lost, and this surge is not accomplishing anything, as is shown by the extreme violence in Iraq this week," Reid told journalists.

Reid said he had delivered the same message to US President George W. Bush on Wednesday, when the US president met with senior lawmakers to discuss how to end a standoff over an emergency war funding bill.

"I know I was the odd guy out at the White House, but I told him at least what he needed to hear ... I believe the war at this stage can only be won diplomatically, politically and economically."

Congress is seeking to tie funding for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to a timetable to withdraw US troops from Iraq next year, but Bush has vowed to veto any such bill and no breakthrough was reported from the White House talks.
[...]
How does this encourage terrorism, death, and destruction in Iraq? Because the Iraqis, Sunni, Shia, and Kurd, will never reconcile and make political progress as long as they believe that the US is weak and its presence in Iraq can be measured in weeks or months and not years.

As long as they know that they need to prepare for the bloodbath that will surely come once the Americans leave, they will continue to amass weapons, pick off targets of convenience who could rise to oppose them, etc.

Harry Reid: Helping to spill blood of Iraqis - all so he can score some political points. Perhaps if they were some white college kids or some Mormons, Harry would have a different perspective.

Perhaps we should pull out of Virginia Tech as well.

I was going to write something about this, but I was just too disgusted. What a disgrace that man is.
