Sen. Richard Lugar, a senior Republican and a reliable vote for President Bush on the war, said that Bush's Iraq strategy was not working and that the U.S. should downsize the military's role.Traitor!
"In my judgment, the costs and risks of continuing down the current path outweigh the potential benefits that might be achieved," Lugar, R-Ind., said in a Senate floor speech. "Persisting indefinitely with the surge strategy will delay policy adjustments that have a better chance of protecting our vital interests over the long term."Coward! Wasn't he listening when our brave Commander in Chief said:
Retreat from Iraq before the job is done would embolden the enemy and make us more vulnerable to attack.Does Dick Lugar want to see another 9/11 type attack on America?
