A letter has just been brought to my attention that I find rather disturbing, Tokyo Tom Harkin has undermined our efforts to free the oppressed people of the middle east,from islamic extremists who have twisted their religion for their own purposes.
In a letter from Iowa State Daily,dated October 26th,2004 General Harkin believes that the war in Iraq is lost, and that President Bush will invoke the draft. Wow just in time for Halloween. Well Tokyo Tom was wrong he underestimated the resolve of the American Military, with the finest officers and troops the world has ever seen. General Petraus stepped in and the surge worked. Despite Tokyo Toms attempt to scare the American public, with another one of his Ghost Stories.
With a record like this one has to wonder what side Tokyo Tom is on, Americas or the rest of the world. We only get a chance to replace some one like this every six years.
If you look at what he has done, undermined the defense effort going back to his days with John Kerry with vets against the war, co sponsoring the law that led to the current economic slow down Senate bill s3283, telling us he is bringing back the bacon from DC to Iowa, and not owning up that we are still paying for it if it overdraws the federal budget, and then telling people there is going to be a draft, when there never was a plan for one. Can we really afford six more years of the crazy , inconsistent behavior this guy has exhibited? I SAY NO?
Here is the letter to Iowa State Daily, notice how he automatically assumes some one going to college wouldnt want to serve their country?
