The traitorous coward and defeatist appeaser Murtha says U.S. poses top threat to world peace.
Arizona Daily Star:
MIAMI — American presence in Iraq is more dangerous to world peace than nuclear threats from North Korea or Iran, Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., said to an audience of more than 200 in North Miami Saturday afternoon.
Murtha was the guest speaker at a town hall meeting organized by Rep. Kendrick B. Meek, D-Miami, at Florida International University's Biscayne Bay Campus. Meek's mother, former Rep. Carrie Meek, D-Miami, was also on the panel.
Murtha's remarks about the danger posed by American presence in Iraq were in regard to a recent poll, by the Pew Global Attitudes Project, that indicates a greater percentage of people in 10 of 14 foreign countries consider the U.S. presence in Iraq a greater danger to world peace than any threats posed by Iran or North Korea. Instead of calling these people morons for believing such utter nonsense, Murtha uses their ignorant opinions to make America look bad. What a traitor.
By the way, the audience would have been larger but a few days earlier Federal agents launched a series of raids targeting a suspected terror cell based in Miami where seven people who intended to attend had been arrested.
Unfortunately the FBI was not aware of the 200 attending Murtha's Surrender Rally and were unable to arrest all 200 for sedition and treason.

Murtha recommended deploying the troops to Okinawa around 4,000 miles away from Iraq.
This old MORON, an unindicted co-conspirator in the Abscam political scandal (1980) who ratted out his fellow Congressmen while saying, "I’m not interested. I’m sorry… at this point” needs to shut the hell up.

Now from the NRO Media Blog via Allah comes this gem from a CNN interview:
MURTHA: "The thing that disturbed me and worries me about this whole thing is we can't get [the administration] to change direction. And I said over and over in debate, if you listen to any of it, in Beirut President Reagan changed direction, in Somalia President Clinton changed direction..."
The move by Clinton in 1993 to evacuate Somalia following the "Blackhawk Down" battle where American Rangers and Delta Force operators killed several hundred Somalis while losing only 18 soldiers is widely acknowledged as a seminal moment in the evolution and elevation of Al Qaida as the most significant terrorist organization in the history of the world. That is not to say that Reagan did us any favors by pulling out of Beirut in 1984, but fortunately the jihadis were busy with the Soviets and not focusing on the US.
So Murtha's advice is for us to pull another shameful Mogadishu? Unfortunately, the yellow bastard Clinton's retreat from Somalia only made the world less safe since Somalia once again has become a haven for terrorists.
As for his assertion that Iraq has made the world less safe, I suppose if we had not gone to Iraq then Israel and Hamas would have signed a peace accord by now, al Qaeda would have peacefully disbanded without Iraq's convenient staging area, and Saddam would not have gone forward with his weapons programs.
Since Saddam would have voluntarily disarmed there would never have been any reason for Iran to try to develop weapons as a defence against a powerful, de-sanctioned, oil-rich, megalomaniac next door.
Indeed, the world would have been at peace. Where was Murtha during WWII? We could have avoided that whole confrontation with Hitler and Tojo.

Atlas Shrugs - Terror Talking Points:"The Enemy is Helpless, Defeated, and Begging to Pull Out of the Iraqi Quagmire", Excerpt:
I see Zarqawi's suc[k]cessor, Abu Hamza Al-Muhajir, has received the Dhimmicrat's talking points;
"The Decisive Stage has Arrived - The Enemy is Helpless, Defeated, and Begging to Pull Out of the Iraqi Quagmire"
Read it all, indistinguishable from Murtha, Feingold, Feinstein, Pelosi, Reid, Kennedy and co.
Some may wonder if appeasement works; Russia of course does not support the war in Iraq and has been negotiating for the release of four hostages recently taken. Did it work? Read Michelle Malkin - JIHADISTS BUTCHER RUSSIAN HOSTAGES where some links to videos are available.
Other bloggers stunned by Murtha's cowardly idiocy:

conservative cat [defunct blog], Confused Americans for Truth - The Recent History of John Murtha's Brain
The first sign that Murtha's primitive urges were taking its toll was his frenzy about an alleged Haditha cover-up. His description in late May of a military rotten to the core was a far cry from his careful, sober press release earlier in the month. Then, in early June, he announced he wanted the Majority Leader job in 2007. This was a bold move, and got him a lot of headlines, but the announcement vaporized almost immediately due to the untimely death of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.
Murtha's response to al-Zarqawi's death was the first concrete sign the reasoning part of his brain had lost control: prior to Zarqawi's death, our poor intelligence resources and lack of progress were proof that we needed to pull out as soon as possible. After Zarqawi's death, however, Murtha announced that we can now pull out because we're making so much progress.

You gotta hand it to these guys: "Redeployment” is ingenious. I’ll bet the focus-group consultants were delirious: "surrender,” "lose,”,”scram,” "scuttle ignominiously,” "head for the hills” all polled poorly, but "redeploy” surveyed well with all parts of the base, except the base in Okinawa, where they preferred "sayonara” — that’s "redeploy” in any language.
