The party of surrender: DNC chairman Howard Dean is pro-terrorist. That may sound like hyperbole, or be unfairly harsh, but in the wake of his statements on a San Antonio radio station, I think they're accurate.
Saying the "idea that we're going to win the war in Iraq is an idea which is just plain wrong," Democratic National Chairman Howard Dean predicted today that the Democratic Party will come together on a proposal to withdraw National Guard and Reserve troops immediately, and all US forces within two years.
Dean made his comments in an interview on WOAI Radio in San Antonio.
"I've seen this before in my life. This is the same situation we had in Vietnam. Everybody then kept saying, 'just another year, just stay the course, we'll have a victory.' Well, we didn't have a victory, and this policy cost the lives of an additional 25,000 troops because we were too stubborn to recognize what was happening."
At the current rate, it would take more than 10 years for 25,000 U.S. troops to die -- and I don't think that anyone believes that we will still have 100,000+ troops there a decade from now.
But Dean's views are really that it's best for America if we turn Iraq over to terrorists. That's what it comes down to. We know what that kind of failed nation-state got us in Afghanistan, but Dean and his cut-and-runners are perfectly content to re-create the conditions that led to the 9/11 attacks.
And they want the American people to trust them with national security?
