Harry Reid: "This war is lost"

Has there ever been a time when the Senate majority leader pronounced America's defeat in war while we are still engaged in battle? This can't be good for anybody.

Newsmax - U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said on Thursday he told President George W. Bush the Iraq war was lost and the recent U.S. troop increase had accomplished nothing.

Reid, the Senate's top Democrat, described part of a meeting with Bush at the White House on Wednesday - the same day bombs killed almost 200 people in Baghdad in the worst day of violence since a U.S.-backed security crackdown was launched there earlier this year.

"This is the message I took to the president," Reid said at a news conference.

"Now I believe myself . . . that this war is lost, and that the surge is not accomplishing anything, as indicated by the extreme violence in Iraq yesterday," said Reid, of Nevada.

In one way, Reid is actually right. Bush's failure to address the real enemy, islam, instead of his safe war against a specific regime, has created a no-win situation. Still, it is treasonous for Reid to come out in the media and proclaim America's defeat. What should be done is nothing short of total annihilation of the moslem infrastructure, and iron-fisted Marshall Law outlawing the practice of islam in public. Since that won't happen, an untenable war will continue with false pretenses and a hidden agenda to defeat islam with democracy promotion and "hearts and minds" policies that will never, ever work.
