Democrats in congress want to pass legislation claiming that the the killing of Armenians in WWI was a genocide. Turkey is threating not to let the U.S. use it's country as a main transportation area for much needed equipment for American troops in Iraq if this legislation is passed.
70 percent of all U.S. cargo going to Iraq goes through Turkey, 1/3 of all the fuel for the troops goes through Turkey and 95 percent of the new Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles goes through Turkey. This legislation would directly affect our military and make the objective in Iraq harder. Why democrats are so hell bent on America's defeat is unknown to me but it is very unpatriotic. Turkey has told us what they may do so Democrats wanting to pass this for political purposes is sick, selfish and not American. Republicans are not excluded from this, if they vote for this they, also, are responsible for undermining our troops.
We are in a time of war and we should not put our political strategies before our support for the troops that are protecting this country from terrorists around the world. What congress needs to do is starting supporting our troops and quit playing politics at the military's expense. Democrats say that the best way to support our troops is to get them out, but I guaranty you that if you talk to the troops an overwhelming majority will believe in the purpose in Iraq and want congress' support by providing them what they need to do the job. If Democrats really support the troops then they need to listen to them (and not just the few that want out). Thank-you for reading and God Bless.
