March 25, 2007 6:39 PM

Chuck Hagel: "He's not accountable anymore, which isn't totally true. You can impeach him, and before this is over, you might see calls for his impeachment. I don't know. It depends on how this goes."

from the Wikipedia:

Charles Timothy "Chuck" Hagel

Hagel is a Vietnam War veteran...served in the U.S. Army infantry, attaining the rank of Sergeant (E-5)

...received the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry, Purple Heart, Army Commendation Medal, and the Combat Infantryman Badge

I'd like to see someone go out of their way to show me how this man is a traitorous, pinko commie, hippie, liberal punk, terrorist sympathizer who's a self hating American.

PLEASE HAGEL, RUN FOR '08!!! And take Ron Paul as your running mate!!!! And then please hire Paul Craig Roberts as your Secretary of State/Foreign policy advisor.

I am a former NYC Firefighter and former U.S. Marine. I have also been a Reservist in the U.S. Coast Guard for 17 years. I worked at the morgue sites going through bodies and body parts for 8 months following 9/11. As a result of the prolonged trauma of that type of work, I was disabled by the FDNY. I would like to make a statement regarding Mr. Reid’s irresponsible comments as follows:

Mr. Harry Reid, Senate Majority Leader (D),

I cannot adequately explain my disappointment at the comments made by you today; "The war is lost". It is inconceivable that someone in your position could be so irresponsible and ignorant of the fallout from those words.

With our troops overseas, on the front lines, putting themselves between your family and the terrorist extremists, you have cheered on the enemy and surely the video tape of your comments will be found at every terrorist camp and referenced by every terrorist group for the eternity of mankind. Your words have "tangibly" aided and given comfort to the enemy, in that such a high political figure in the Government of our great Country has conceded defeat to terrorism. You are a disgrace to every American, irregardless of political belief or religious background.

Your comments would have demoralized a less disciplined military. Fortunately, the military men and women on the battlefields far from home, protecting you and your families interests, are not cowards or quitters (as you are). We don't train our military that way. Thank God you did not hold such a high office during other difficult and defining moments in the history of our country.

You have given the enemy reason to rejoice, reason to continue the fight and reason to step up their violence not just in Iraq, but all over the world. You have given the enemy "hope". You have pointed them to light at the end of the tunnel. Congratulations.

For several years Saddam Hussein stood there ignoring U.N. resolutions, pushing his finger forward in his jacket pocket as if to say "stick-em up". We responded to the "threat" and it turns out that we didn't find a gun in his pocket. He was a murderer that placed no value on human life. The world is a better place without him.

On September 11, 2001, another group of people showed the world that they place no value on human life. If these terrorists had it their way, we would all be dead. Terrorists do not want to "rule" us or "enslave" us. They want to kill us. All of us. For no reason. Sound familiar? Ask a Holocaust survivor what that feels like.

Iraq could be described as decent people who have suffered under an evil regime. We are trying to help them. You have single handedly undermined that effort. You have also unwittingly caused severe damage to the Democratic party, for surely there are innumerable Democrats that have served, and do serve, in the military, and there are millions of Democrats that don’t believe in quitting or surrendering to evil. In your position as a spokesperson for Democrats, your party will suffer in 2008 for your irresponsible and ignorant comments.

For any person that believes America puts its nose where it doesn't belong, or that we violate human rights, the litmus test for me, is when people stop trying to "kill" themselves to immigrate here. That's when I will start questioning what kind of country I'm living in. Even after all the wars, the dropping of bombs, etc, we can't accommodate the influx of immigration into our great Country. The "proof" stands before you. This is the greatest Country in the world and people from every walk of life and every background, race, creed, color and sex know it and want to be here in this country.

Mr. Reid, I don’t know what you were thinking. Please resign.

You're entitled to your opinion. And your services to your country aside... do some basic research before going into a tirade as such because it comes of reeking of ignorance.

Reid came to the correct conclusion and if you would like me to go through a detailed retort as to why, i'll be happy to. Your tirade is full of factual inaccuracies and emotional desperation at the fact Americans are starting to wake up to the BS foisted upon them. For the first time in 6 years im seeing a light at the end of this dark and evil tunnel.

You obviously have the internet. There's no excuse for you not to learn the truth.

You obviously have the internet.

this statement from you speaks volumes and is all the facts i need from you.

Mike of the Great White North:

LoL. Ok, fine. Im not going to even begin with you.. you look like another brick wall with a vocal chord. Ill just have to contently wait until Sept. when Patreus reports back on the uselessness of the surge, another couple hundred american soldiers are dead, another couple thousand iraqis are dead, before the repulicans start turning on Bush like a bunch of savages and begin demanding pullouts en'masse. And ill leave emotionally unstable people like you to sob in your own hysteria.

Again, you've caught me on a day where im too tired to tear your verbal tirade apart, but i've saved it just in case you rear your head again and tempt me. Go do something more productive with your time, fly down to Kansas and help out or something... they need all the help they can get, what with guard equipment off in iraq and all.

1. As for Hagel: research his first election to Congress as an upset over the predicted winner: the Democrat. And research how Hagel bought the voting machine company for that election before the election.

Don't take my word for it: research it for yourself.

2. NY Firefighter: If you knew the history of interventions in Iraq, you'd realize the war was lost before it began.

In the alternative: Perhaps you approve our country being lied into a war against a person and people who had nothing whatever to do with 9/11. Perhaps all that matters to you is vengence, without regard for whom against the vengence is wrought.

If, by contrast, you had been paying attention to facts for the five years or so before Bush took over, you would know that bin Laden was loudly and often on the record as wanting Saddam overthrown, and his gov't replaced with the equivalent of that in Iran. In other words: the only thing Sadam and bin Laden had in common was that they were mutual enemies. Saddam wasn't a nice guy; but he wasn't stupid either: He wasn't about to give WMDs (which he didn't have) to those who he knew would use them against Saddam.

If you prefer to remain ignorant of not only history, but also of the genuine meaning of love of country, then you will continue to rant and rave while the truth and law catch up with the false hero Bush.

Unlike the chickenhawks in the White House, Reid served in the military. I doubt those who worship the former are qualified to criticize the latter.
