Iraq War Watch: Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid – War in Iraq is LOST

“War in Iraq lost”: US Democrat leader

The war in Iraq “is lost” and a US troop surge is failing to bring peace to the country, the leader of the Democratic majority in the US Congress, Harry Reid, said Thursday.

“I believe … that this war is lost, and this surge is not accomplishing anything, as is shown by the extreme violence in Iraq this week,” Reid said, on the same day US President George W. Bush was giving a speech at an Ohio town hall meeting defending the war on terror.

Hailed by his staff as “a strong leader who speaks his mind in direct fashion,” Reid is assuredly not a man who misses many opportunities to put his foot in his mouth. In 2005, he attacked Alan Greenspan, then chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, as “one of the biggest political hacks we have here in Washington.”

He called President Bush ” a loser,” then apologized. He said that Bill Frist, then Senate majority leader, had “no institutional integrity” because Frist planned to leave the Senate to fulfill a term-limits pledge. Then he apologized to Frist.

Most of these earlier gaffes were personal, bespeaking a kind of displaced aggressiveness on the part of the onetime amateur boxer. But Reid’s verbal wanderings on the war in Iraq are consequential — not just for his party and the Senate but for the more important question of what happens to U.S. policy in that violent country and to the men and women whose lives are at stake.

  1. Despite conservatives efforts to paint any politician who doesn’t support the war as traitorous, most Americans agree that the war in Iraq cannot be won.

  2. I’m glad you’re not my dentist. Even a die-hard Republican such as yourself can surely see that the war in Iraq is a no-win situation. First we invade because our liar of a president says there are WMDs there, which there weren’t. Then we put all our troops there in harm’s way because all the money goes to corrupt construction groups such as Custer-Battles. Rumsfeld did not listen to military advisors, nor did Bush. “Mission (not) Accomplished”. Bush spoke and a self-fulfilling projection took off: we will get rid of Saddam and the Iraqis will love us. Wrong. We will get rid of Saddam and then have to deal with insurgents for God knows how long and lose more troops in a war that has no forseeable end. More war from men who have never been in a war. Bush and Cheney both dodged Vietnam and nobody else in that nest of liars has any clue what war is like. Sometimes the guys in Washington are too tactful. Harry Reid isn’t tactful enough for you, tough. Somebody has to say it.

  3. Harry Reid is wrong on the Iraq War as you are.

    Thank you for your mature comments and calling the President a liar.

  4. This is writen one day after the Fort Dix Six were arrested in a plot to bring the jihad back to American soil. Liberals just don’t get it, have never tired of being wrong and on top of that using the freedom this country offers to destroy it. It would be easier to teach a pig to sing opera, and a bit less frustrating.

  5. The last time I checked a map Fort Dix was in New Jersey not Iraq. This incident seems more like evidence against the war in Iraq than for the fight against global terrorism.
