Real cowardice

According to Congresswoman Jean Schmidt (R), "Cowards cut and run".

Well no.

What cowards do is attack the integrity of others who have made far greater personal sacrifices for their country.

What cowards do is refuse to be straight about what it really means if we "stay the course"
  • How long it is going to take? One more year? Two? Ten? Twenty? Will our grandchildren still be dying in Iraq?
  • How much is it going to cost? $300 billion? $500 billion? A trillion? Will we mortgage the future of every generation to follow?
  • How many more lives will be lost? Another 1,000? 5,000? 60,000 or more like Vietnam?
What cowards do is continue to sacrifice the lives of others to a lost cause because they can't face the political consequences of admitting that they've screwed up and the situation is beyond saving.

So who are the real cowards?
