Randy Kuhl

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 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.”

I love how he and others use the word "surrender" in the most inappropriate way. This has ZERO to do with "surrender" and everything to do with saving lives.

Nobody's waving a white flag. Just correcting the hugest, most obscene mistake in U.S. history.

Randy Kuhl is a dope. He is one of those arm-chair political-militarists sending other people's children to die for the interests of the military-industrial complex, while those cowards (think Dickie Chaney with five student deferments that kept him out of the draft) luxuriate in their Washington DC marble palaces and line their own pockets. ----“The commitment of our forces to this fight was done with a casualness and swagger that are the special province of those who have never had to execute these missions – or bury the results.” LTG Gregory Newbold, USMC Ret. ----"Patriotism is fierce as a fever, pitiless as the grave, blind as a stone and as irrational as a headless hen." -Ambrose Bierce---- "Patriotism is a religion, the egg from which wars are hatched." : Guy de Maupassant ----"One of the great attractions to patriotism, it fulfills our worst wishes. In the person of a nation we are able, vicariously, to bully and cheat while feeling we're profoundly virtuous." : Aldous Huxley
