Murtha: Fund diplomacy, not the Military's AFRICOM

There are 8 comments on the www.stripes.com story from Nov 29, 2008, titled Murtha: Fund diplomacy, not the Military's AFRICOM . In it, www.stripes.com reports that:

LANDSTUHL, Germany — More money should go to the U.S. State Department for U.S. efforts in Africa rather than to the military’s U.S. Africa Command, said Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa.

“They should use diplomacy in Africa rather than military,” Murtha said. “We can’t win these wars militarily. Nobody wants us over there. I think Liberia wants us. Nobody else.

“You can’t just throw money at it, and you can’t win it militarily. It has to be done diplomatically. So I’ve been trying to shift money and convince the people that make the decision on where the money goes that more money should go to the State Department for those kind of things.”

They voted him in because they want change in their pocketbooks. The way things are going with our money is that we will be Zimbabwe. Democrats vote for Democrats because that is the way they were taugh and think. Maybe he should take one of those fact finding junkets aand stay there. It is very difficult for me to fathom,"How stupid a retired officer can be." They had to call in everybody to get him re-elected . I am sure they knew he was going down for the count unless they came to his aid. Maaybe in two years the people of Western PA will see that their pocketbooks are running on empty and this rectum is still spouting his trash. I hope he ddoe not weasel out of testifying in the case a Real Marine is bringing against him, Hwe will probably wait until there are new Liberal justices appointed to the Supreme Court. In 2 years we will have another go at him and this might get him out of Congress.

So how many of you who talk about war, diplomacy or both in Africa would like to see United States Army Base Fort Monroe get converted into nation-wide historic park and become the new home of AFRICOM!?
