Earlier this week, when President Bush vetoed funding for the troops I pointed out that it was the Democrats in Congress who were supporting the troops, not the President.
Matt Cunningham over at Red County/OC Blog responded:
“Give me a break. The Democratic Congress is an unwitting morale officer for the Iraqi terrorists.”
Now we have this report from Reuters, (H/T to DarkSyde on Daily Kos) that demonstrates with undeniable clarity, that it is President Bush who is emboldening the enemy with is unwillingness to set a timetable for withdrawl from Iraq.
Those who support Bush’s catastrophic war in Iraq and oppose the recently vetoed war funding bill received a glowing endorsement from an unexpected source this weekend: Ayman al-Zawahri, Al Qaeda’s second in command:
Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â This bill reflects American failure and frustration,” Zawahri said. “But this bill will deprive us of the opportunity to destroy the American forces which we have caught in a historic trap.”
“We ask Allah that they only get out after losing 200,000 to 300,000 killed, so that we give the blood spillers in Washington and Europe an unforgettable lesson to motivate them to review their entire doctrinal and moral system,” Zawahri said on the video, posted on Web sites used by Islamists.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â
The neocons want us to stay in Iraq, Al Qaeda wants us to stay, most conservatives want us to stay. But the majority of the American people agree with the Democrats, progressives, independents, and want out. It’s pretty simple:
You’re either with us or you’re with the terrorists.
