Chichester Responds To E-mail / RE: Iraq

Q: Do you honestly believe victory [in Iraq] is even possible at this point? And what do you so dislike about Democrats?

A: Of course I believe we can achieve victory. The United States military is the greatest institution our country has ever produced. I know first-hand.

I dislike the Democratic party's inability to accept the consequences of war. I dislike its overwrought Oprah-esque talk show host, emotion-only approach to why we are in Iraq. I dislike the language the party leaders use that damage morale. Nancy Pelosi said it was a "grotesque mistake" and Harry Reid said "the war is lost." This language is deeply disturbing to me. Our soldiers hear this bile.
