He took up arms himself when he pulled a shotgun on his wife. Now Rep. Randy Kuhl refuses to listen to the Generals who served on the ground in Iraq and wants to send more troops into battle without the supplies and training they need:
Three retired generals, one who lives in Monroe County, are firing attacks at members of Congress in new national television ads over their position on the Iraq war, including ones targeted at local Reps. Randy Kuhl and James Walsh.
The first ad released Wednesday by VoteVets.org features retired Army Maj. Gen. John Batiste of Brighton, who has been railing against the war since he retired from the military in 2005.
In the ad, Batiste, who led the Army’s 1st Infantry Division in Iraq for 2½ years, encourages Congress to change course and says Bush has pursued “a failed policy that is breaking our great Army and Marine Corps.”...
Kuhl, however, voted for the troop buildup in Iraq and said recently that “I’m not about to send up the white flag and surrender at this point.”
