    Angry They call it their 'slow-bleed' plan.

    They call it their 'slow-bleed' plan.

    Republican National Committee


    Dear XXXXX,

    The Democrat strategy on Iraq is finally clear.

    We've known all along that they want to cut and run before the job is done. But they've been afraid to confront President Bush directly. Today, Democrat Rep. John Murtha let slip what he and Nancy Pelosi really intend to do, and it is genuinely frightening.

    They call it their 'slow-bleed' plan. Instead of supporting the troops in Iraq, or simply bringing them home, the Democrats intend to gradually make it harder and harder for them to do their jobs. They will introduce riders onto bills to prevent certain units from deploying. They will try to limit the President's constitutional power to determine the length and number of deployments. They will attempt to keep the Pentagon from replacing troops who rotate out of Iraq. They may even try to limit how our troops operate by, for example, prohibiting our armed forces from creating and operating bases in Iraq.

    'Slow-bleed' is exactly the right name for this incredibly irresponsible and dangerous strategy. Cutting and running is bad enough. But the Murtha-Pelosi 'slow-bleed' plan is far worse. It is a cynical and dangerous erosion of our ability to fight the terrorists while we still have men and women on the ground in Iraq. It will put their lives in far greater danger, as resources slowly dry up. How can our troops operate without bases? How can they fight without backup?

    'Slow-bleed' cannot become law. Luckily, we have an opportunity to stop it. The Murtha plan depended on stealth. Now, however, the press has broken the story. And now we can act.

    Write a letter to your editor today. Spread the word that we cannot abandon our men and women in Iraq. Because that is exactly what would happen if the 'slow-bleed' plan becomes a reality.

    Our armed forces are the best in the world. They are serving with tremendous honor and bravery in Iraq. We cannot gradually abandon them. We cannot allow the Murtha-Pelosi 'slow-bleed' plan to happen. So please, take action today.

    Sincerely,

    Mike Duncan
    Chairman, Republican National Committee

    And no you can't have any.

    this is why I hate the Democrats. As they do this, they would stand in front of the cameras and continue to tell the American people that; "The Republican plan isnt working. Look at what is going on, they are failing." What a bunch of pany waist liberal jack-asses!!!!

    I'm hoping that all the Republicans have the balls to use this exact "Slow-Bleed" terminology in each and every interview and public speaking event they have.

    Write letters to the editors and things like that - If enough people repeat it on TV and in the newspapers, then the message will eventually get across to the public.

    Absolutely disgusting. Nancy Pelosi is VERY bad for this country, from a political standpoint. Murtha is too.

    Dems Find Way to Block Surge
    Associated Press | February 16, 2007

    WASHINGTON - Democrats are challenging President Bush's power to wage war, contending they've found a way to block a troop increase in Iraq and prevent any pre-emptive invasion of Iran.

    But first Congress will vote on a nonbinding measure stating opposition to Bush's decision to send 21,500 more troops to Iraq. The House was expected to pass the measure on Friday, with the Senate planning to hold a test vote Saturday.

    Democrats say the votes are the first step toward forcing Bush to change course in a war that has killed more than 3,100 U.S. troops and lost favor with voters.

    "This country needs a dramatic change of course in Iraq and it is the responsibility of this Congress to consummate that change," said Rep. John Murtha, who chairs the House panel that oversees military spending.

    Murtha, D-Pa., is preparing legislation that would set strict conditions on combat deployments, including a year rest between combat tours; ultimately, the congressman says, his measure would make it impossible for Bush to maintain his planned deployment of a total of about 160,000 troops for months on end.

    Murtha's proposal also might block the funding of military operations inside Iran - a measure intended to send a signal to Bush that he will need Congress' blessing if he is planning another war.

    "The president could veto it, but then he wouldn't have any money," Murtha told an anti-war group in an interview broadcast on movecongress.org.

    In an interview Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., noted that Bush consistently said he supports a diplomatic resolution to differences with Iran "and I take him at his word."

    At the same time, she said, "I do believe that Congress should assert itself, though, and make it very clear that there is no previous authority for the president, any president, to go into Iran."

    Bush said at a news conference Wednesday he has no doubt the Iranian government is providing armor-piercing weapons to kill American troops in Iraq. But he backed away from claims by senior U.S. military officials in Baghdad that the top echelon of Iran's government was responsible.

    Administration critics have accused the president of looking for a pretense to attack Iran, at loggerheads with the United Nations about what Tehran says is a nuclear program aimed at developing energy for peaceful purposes.

    In a speech Thursday, Bush said he expects Congress to live up to its promise to support the troops.

    "We have a responsibility, Republicans and Democrats have a responsibility to give our troops the resources they need to do their job and the flexibility they need to prevail," Bush said.

    In the third day of a House debate on the war, GOP combat veterans spoke out against the Democratic resolution.

    "The enemy wants our men and women in uniform to think their Congress doesn't care about them," said Rep. Sam Johnson, R-Texas, who was a prisoner of war during Vietnam. "We must learn from our mistakes. We cannot leave a job undone like we left in Korea, like we left in Vietnam, like we left in Somalia," Johnson said.

    Rep. Duncan Hunter of California, the top Republican on the House Armed Services Committee, called the political maneuvering by Democrats "extremely dangerous."

    "It could stop reinforcements from arriving in time to stop major casualties in any of a number of scenarios," said Hunter.

    Democrats will have to fight critics in the Senate as well.

    "I will do everything in my power to ensure the House resolution dies an inglorious death in the Senate," said Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.

    Yeah, this scum bag bag lawyer is the one that fought to give terrorists rights under the Genevia Convention. And I voted for him If the Fed Govt (Bush) had balls the Justice Dept would start investigating to\hose Democrats for giving aid and comfort to the enemy. A pox on their house.

    My friend works for Senator Graham and sent me this -

    Lindsey is one of the few people out there still backing bush 100% on the war. Whomever made that comment should try doing some homework... or perhaps they don't think we should be sending additional troops. Maybe they agree with Ted Kennedy. In addition, he didn't want to give terrorists any additional rights, he wanted to have outlined interrogation techniques so that soldiers/cia operatives would know what they could and couldn't do and so that if we were to fight a war with someone they couldn't proclaim our soldiers combatants and beat them.

    And I stand corrected, this story has been on the news. I hope the American public understands what it will mean in the end if it passes. And when the American casulties really start piling up, the people understand its the fault of the Democrats that did it.
