Stay the Course or a Flawed Policy
An increasing number of House members and senators, looking to off-year elections next November, are publicly worrying about a quagmire in Iraq. They have been staking out new positions on a war that is increasingly unpopular with the American public, has resulted in more than 2,000 U.S. military deaths and has cost more than $200 billion.
According to Rep. John Murtha, a former Marine and Bronze Star and 2 time Pruple Heart recipient, "Our troops have become the primary target of the insurgency." He continued, "The (insurgency) is united against U.S. forces and we have become a catalyst for violence. The war in Iraq is not going as advertised. It is a flawed policy wrapped in illusion."
