Surrendocrats At It Again; Who Will Respond?

General Petraeus has said that he needs several months to ascertain how well the surge is succeeding. But not those masters of military planning and strategy, Give 'Em Surrender Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. With precisely zero days of military experience between them, yet years of partisan political experience, they feel that they are qualified to pronounce judgment on the surge now. And yet again, they are taking the opportunity to preemptively announce the surge failed presented by a successful operation by terrorists in Iraq. When I wrote in my post several hours ago that four entities had the motivation to destroy the Samarra Mosque and reignite the move towards a civil war - and I included "Congressional Democrats" among the list - I was not joking or being cynical. In Iraq, there has been no violence yet as a result of the successful terrorist action. Thus, the only militant entity thus far to capitalize on the bombing are Congressional Democrats led by Reid and Pelosi:

Top US congressional Democrats bluntly told President George W. Bush Wednesday that his Iraq troop "surge" policy was a failure.

Senate Majority leader Harry Reid and House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi challenged the president over Iraq by sending him a letter, ahead of a White House meeting later on Wednesday.

"As many had forseen, the escalation has failed to produce the intended results," the two leaders wrote.

"The increase in US forces has had little impact in curbing the violence or fostering political reconciliation.

"It has not enhanced Americas national security. The unsettling reality is that instances of violence against Iraqis remain high and attacks on US forces have increased.

"In fact, the last two months of the war were the deadliest to date for US troops.

The letter appeared to preview a fresh showdown over Iraq between anti-war Democrats and the president, just a few weeks after Bush forced his foes to strip troop withdrawal timelines from a 100 billion dollar emergency war budget.

It also came a few days after the US military mourned its 3,500th soldier killed in action in Iraq.

Pelosi and Reid told Bush in the letter that they planned to send him new legislation to "limit the US mission in Iraq, begin the phased redeployment of US forces, and bring the war to a responsible end."

On Tuesday, Reid said that Senate Democrats would attach troop withdrawal deadlines to a Defense Department Authorization bill, due to be debated within weeks. . . .
Read the entire story here. It would seem that the fact Petraues warned that we would suffer higher US casualties as we became more agressive and moved into previously unchallenged areas is meaningless to the Surrendocrats except in as much as to how it can be twisted. There is no mention of the sectarian killings being halved, nor of the successes in Anbar Province. Reid and Pelosi are worthless partisan animals with not an ounce of patriotism nor any care for the consequences of their actions beyond the acquisition of raw political power. Will anyone in the MSM begin asking these Surrendocrats what they expect the cost to be of leaving Iraq to be fought over and divided by Iran, al Qaeda and Turkey at a minimum? Will any Conservative or moderate who has the courage of his principals respond to this partisan posturing. This is national suicide.

We really should listen to Harry Reid and listen well...

Once we are sure we know what he's saying and wants us to do, we will be better equipped do the exact opposite.
