Protect the Troops

Rep. Jack Murtha is calling for humane treatment of our military. He has had the audacity to propose a plan that says we should never again send our troops into harms way under-equipped, under-trained and under-rested.
Amazingly, the right-wingers are saying this is an anti-troop, anti-American jester that somehow plays into the hands of the terrorists.
This is just one more example of how bizarrely the right twists the truth to support their side of a political position.
Show that you do not believe their lies.
Support our troops by calling or sending a letter to your elected officials telling them that you are not buying the right-wing attempts to break the military in order to cover over their failed policies and that you agree with Rep. Murthas desire to save our military from the neo-con abuse.
