The Real War Wimps July 12, 2007

Will Grigg's Liberty Minute

Several Senate Republicans have recently called for a US withdrawal from Iraq. Others, such Chuck Hagel of Nebraska, support a bill that would bring about that withdrawal by the end of next April.

House Republican leader John Boehner has contemptuously referred to these war critics as ?wimps.? Senator Hagel's body still carries shrapnel he took while serving in Vietnam. Boehner has never experienced combat first-hand. So his qualifications to assess the courage of men like Chuck Hagel are a little thin.

Would Rep. Boehner also detect ?wimpiness? in Sgt. Erik Botta of Port St. Lucie, Florida? Sgt. Botta has reluctantly filed suit against the Army after being ordered to report for his fifth combat deployment since 2001. Botta is a young husband who stands to lose his home and his job if he serves another combat tour; he is being represented pro bono by an attorney who graduated from West Point.

The real congressional ?wimps? are those who refuse to stand up to a delusional president by voting to bring our troops home.

Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
