NC Rep Walter "freedom fries" Jones wants troops out of Iraq, Freepers erupt
“When I look at the number of men and women who have been killed – it’s almost 1,700 now, in addition to close to 12,000 have been severely wounded – and I just feel that the reason of going in for weapons of mass destruction, the ability of the Iraqis to make a nuclear weapon, that’s all been proven that it was never there.”— Congressman Walter Jones, (R-NC)
This is getting interesting; the reliably wingnut congressman had the light bulb come on about the complete disaster that is the U.S. military effort in Iraq. He appeared on ABC’s “This Week” and said he will introduce legislation this week calling for a timetable for the withdrawal of American troops in Iraq. Freepers are taking a piece of Walter Jones’s hide below. Feel the defensiveness and fear along with the anger.
“This guy represents a district that consists of Camp Lejeune. What do the Marines think of him?”
“Of course .. why don’t we shut down Gitmo, turn all the terrorists loose and tell the terrorists when we’re leaving Iraq. Wow!!”
“HOW IN HELL DID THESE IDIOTS EVER GET ELECTED – THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO DEFEND AND PROTECT THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES – NOT DEFEND AND PROTECT THE TERRORISTS!! Yes .. I’m screaming!!! I’m sick of this crap.”
“Makes me ashamed to be in NC.”
“Jones was a Democrat for most of his political career. He ran for Congress in 1992 as a Dem, and lost. He saw which way the wind was blowing, so switched parties, and won as a Republican.”
“He isn’t a Republican now either.”
“It sounds like his problem is more with himself than with the mission. He should resign.”
“Here little Muslim. Here little Muslim. Just wait until all the good guys are gone then you and Walter Jones can go in and start killing people again, without any opposition.”
“Sorry it should be Over or Out. I was in WW II when the Commander in Chief and the military came up with a plan to win against two major well-armed enemies. It was done in less time that the present conflict against an enemy using car bombs and IEDs. President Bush should do a Lincoln and fire this hopeless military leadership from Rumsfeld on down and replace them with leaders who are able to come up with a plan to win this war soon and not cop out about how difficult it is and how long it will take. Patton wouldn’t take those excuses. I say again Over or Out. Get it Over or get us Out. We still have China to worry about.”
“This is what I’d like to know… why have a military if we aren’t willing to risk them giving their lives?”
“Is this Jones character another member in good standing of the Jim Jeffords Scarlet Letter Club?”
“Times are getting tougher. I have a feeling that 2006 may be a difficult election cycle, and the conservative movement is going to find out who its true friends are. But we may lose a few hangers-on.”
“What an idiot.”
“I have to tell you that we live close to Ft Hood. Soldiers coming back from Iraq with the 1st Cavalry are becoming quite vocal about their opposition to the war. Many of those eligible for getting out are doing so. Many in the 4th Infantry will be returning for the second time after just coming back a year ago are also saying the same thing. I have been kind of surprised to see even officers speaking out. My son-in-law will be going in November and the toll it is taking on the families is really bad and I think has something to do with alot of their decisions. I think the prospect of going back every other year for decades is not very appealing any more.”
“He obviously is emotionally disturbed and that is affecting his job. He should resign.”
“Agreed! I’ve already sent him a fax to let him know how one voter feels!”
“HOW IN HELL DID THESE IDIOTS EVER GET ELECTED
Unfortunately the peeples voted them in. Congress is a Perfect Example Of Where You Will NOT Find The Best And Brightest Of The USA.”
“Frankly, I’m sick of politicians sending people to die, then turning around and not letting them do their job/win. Either fight 100%, or don’t fight at all.”
“Dear Congressman Jones,
I’d like to thank you for giving us a timetable for pulling your troops out of Iraq. By setting a timetable for the war to end, rather than actually trying to win it, you have given us renewed hope and the knowledge that the great satan has been beaten by us, and that all we need to do is wait you out.
I can’t begin to tell you how we will dance in the streets as we chase you out of the middle east, and we will know that the great satan in nothing more than a paper tiger.
And once you’re gone, we will then come to your homes and kill you. And there will be rejoicing in the streets as america comes under the rule of sharia law.
Thanks for all your assistance! Osama”
