WTW: An Unbiased Story On Troops Supporting Murtha

Or, maybe not.

 While Staff Sgt. Randy Myers was dodging roadside bombs in Iraq, his congressman was calling the war a lost cause.

Sixteen-term Rep. John Murtha, a decorated Vietnam veteran and military hawk, has become the face of the Democrats' anti-war movement since he called for the withdrawal of U.S. troops last fall. His oft-repeated criticism of the Bush administration's war policies also has earned him the wrath of Republicans.

In Murtha's southwest Pennsylvania district, however, many share the war critic's views.

At a welcome home ceremony this week for Myers and other troops from the Johnstown, Pa.-based 876th Engineer Battalion, the crowd cheered when a Murtha aide welcomed the troops on the congressman's behalf.

Myers said he backs Murtha, an opinion echoed by a number of other troops and their families. Several share his frustration with the conflict.

"I'm not sure we're doing a whole lot of good," Myers, 46, said of the U.S. presence in Iraq. "Everybody thinks we are. We're trying to, but we're not going to change what they want to do, and if they don't want to change, they're not gonna."

Said Sgt. 1st Class George Wozniak, 36, of Murtha: "He's definitely for a strong military and he definitely supports the troops."

I reckon I am missing the part where the article is unbiased and meaningful, rather then a liberal rah rah job backing Murtha. Where are the dissenting views? None? Typical.

We get a little blurb about Dianna Irey running against Murtha for the Congressional seat, but the story is meant to portray that almost all the troops and people in that district back Murtha and his cut and run policies.

Sure, most families want the troops to come come. So do most Republicans. But, they do not want them to cut and run, ie, surrender, before the job is completed. That is the difference between most Republicans and Democrats: the Dems would rather that the USA surrender and be humiliated for purely petty political reasons. Republicans don't. We prefer that the USA comes out on top. Thank God the modern Democrat Party wasn't in charge in the 1770's.

    What is Murtha’s hero status in Vietnam? All i can find indicates he was a desk jockey in military intel. Did he make himself a hero by writing his own citations like Hanoi John? Don’t know, just asking if anyone knows the truth.

  2. You know, I have never looked it up, to be honest. I know he served. Beyond that, bupkis.
