Do you agree with this Democratic Congresswoman?

 "This war [Afghanistan] represents an epic failure, a national embarrassment and a moral blight," Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-CA)

Do you think they consider the morale of the deployed troops and their families when they say this sh*t?

    She doesn't mean ' morale ' which is what you are talking about . " Moral ' is a different word with a different meaning - check a good dictionary

  • What is an epic failure is that we whipped the whole world in four years in WWII but we have been being politically correct now for 10.

  • I'm not saying I agree with the statement, but people shouldn't just blindly support every decision involving troops so as not to hurt their morale. My husband was a soldier and he knew that there might be times when he didn't agree with a position he was put into to. And he certainly knew that not everyone would be supportive. There are always people on both sides.

  • No they don't consider the morale of the troops..I wonder if she was one of the SEVERAL dems that voted FOR this war and Iraq when it was "cool" to do that... (can't think of a word other than cool)

    No, you doofus.. Does she or  anyone else who agrees~ have the balls to say this to military members and their families faces? Do they even consider the families morale and those who are fighting over there when they open their f'n mouth? Moral and morale are 2 different things.....  Her words impact morale....  geeze...
