What Real Consequences Look Like

This devastating video of soldiers on the front-lines (such as the “front lines” are in an insurgency) will make your coffee cold.  I can’t imagine living like this, making these kinds of decisions or living with the results of wrong choices that leave dead people behind.

Perhaps when politicians talk about the “consequences of defeat,” we should remind them that there are Americans living with choices and consequences every single day.  Maybe we should explain to Randy Kuhl that every day he chooses to leave the troops where they are, these are the consequences. 

We don’t really live with the fruit of our leaders actions; our leaders certainly do not.  Oh, I’m sure a few loyal Republicans wake up in a cold sweat from time to time, or at least I hope so.  Our soldiers do, and the consequences of failure in Congress is more choices and more consequence in Iraq:

Crooks and Liars

Is this the progress? Is this winning against the terrorists? Do we have them on the run?

I hope that everyone of those immoral “party-over-country” Republicans (Joe Lieberman, that means you) that prevented a vote for the Reed-Levin Re-deployment bill have to sit down and watch what they have condemned our troops to.
