If the Democrats continue with their continuous stalling, they get to create another Vietnam

I am a Vietnam Veteran. Treated like dirt, shunned by most democrats and abused by the Social Welfare System. They are afraid of getting their hands dirty.
President Bush has taken it upon himself to represent the American people, to send our troops into Iraq and to demand that we end the war with a victory. If the Democrats continue with their continuous stalling, they get to create another Vietnam, which can be used as a political weapon to create more wealth for the wealthy by stretching the war out.
They really dont want us to get out.
They want to create debates, to stall, to make money on another war. They have shown the American people how to be greedy with blood. Lets see them put their bodies and lives on the line to fight for the freedom that we are over there fighting for.
Most of our soldiers are trying to fight for that freedom. But the more the democrats protest and stall, the lower our soldiers morale falls every time. They have to be accountable for somebody they killed. Tell the democrats to shut up; to put their money, guts, bodies and blood, where their mouths are. Victory plan in Iraq? President Bush has a clear plan for victory in Iraq that begins with training Iraqi forces so they can defend their country and fight the terrorists. We are making tremendous progress towards this objective. Withdrawing from Iraq, as democrats in Washington propose, would send a dangerous signal to our enemies that we cut and run when the going gets tough.
President Bush is offering a clear strategy to win, not a political quick fix.
