Some Democrats just doesn't comprehend what true honor is

I listened to FoxNews' Your World this morning (they re-air it at 4am) and hear the Liberal Dennis Kucinich whining about why we should tuck our tails between our legs and whimper out of Iraq. Neil Cavuto asked something to the effect of, “But won't we be saying to all the guys killed or injured, that it was just a waste?” Kucinich's answer was astounding, “We would honor them.” Why would the people of Ohio elect such a worm to office? This guy doesn't have the foggiest idea what honor is. Honor isn't something that's invented out of thin air, then tossed at whoever you want to claim is “honorable”. A person is honorable by doing honorable actions. Those actions are honorable because of the combination of self-sacrifice as well as the effectiveness of it. (For those who want to argue this point, is it honorable to help an old lady across the street -- then stop halfway and leave her in the middle of the street?)

If we pulled out of Iraq now, then those deaths and wounds would be in vain, and would be a waste, just as all the deaths in Vietnam were a waste because a bunch of spineless cowards like John Kerry pressured Congress into leaving and not finishing what we'd begun. The people of Vietnam suffer to this day because of that cowardice, and those who made it back home haven't forgot.

Kucinich makes the same hollow claims that all of those who want to run away from good, make, like they did 40 years ago...it's a mistake, we aren't doing any good, the soldiers don't even want to be there. Lies based lies based on lies.

U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., is now under fire for calling US Troops, Nazis. We are seeing a repeat of the same kind of hatred and cowardice that surfaced during Vietnam...while they have the gall to call what we are doing in Iraq...another Vietnam.

If I lived in Ohio or Illinois, I would be very ashamed to be represented by either of theses cretins.
