Murtha, Clinton, Somalia, bin Laden, Bush and Iraq

Okay, I'm not pro-war, and I'm not one of those "the liberal media is comspiring against everything that's good and true" kinds of people, but it's kinda interesting that nobody is talking about this story: Will the Mainstream Media Cover the Story of Murtha and Clinton on Somalia? | NewsBusters.org: "Murtha and Clinton on Somalia"

Here's the deal. There was a big splash in the media when John Murtha spoke out and said we should get out of Iraq. Fine. But there should be an equally big splash when you connect the dots and see that Murtha was directly involved (by his own account) in our withdrawal from Somalia, and Osama bin Laden (by his own account) used that withdrawal to motivate his terrorists.

Hello! This tells me that "withdrawal from mid-East conflict" isn't a wise course of action!

It's damned-if-you-do, damned-if-you-don't.

Our presence as well as our potential departure are ammunition for extremists.

Perhaps it's a lesson for future presidents.

I definately think it is in our best interest to finish what we started. However, like my grandfather once said(he just happened to be a history prof.)the people in that area of the world have been killing each other for centuries and will continue to kill each other and anyone else that in is the way of death. We just happen to be in the way of that 'death.' I also think that the rest of the world doesn't have a clue as to what kind of death and destruction that has been transpiring for yrs in the middle east. We, as a nation, are just now seeing what kind of evil that has been ruling that part of the world for 30 + years. It's a crazy place that I don't wish upon anyone.
