Profiles in Cowardice

As the editors at National Review Online point out, Senators Biden, Levin and Hagel should be ashamed.

What is the purpose of a resolution of disapproval about the war? It has no effect besides to demoralize the troops, embolden our enemies, and dispirit our allies.

If the Democrats believe that our troops are truly being asked to die in a mistaken cause, they have the obligation to de-fund the war (which Nancy Pelosi has declined to do). But if the cause is worth allowing soldiers to continue to die for it (which it is), then surely the President's plan to try to win the war merits senatorial silence -- if support for victory from these craven defeat-mongers is too much to ask.

How in the world the good people of Nebraska could keep that incompetent dolt, Hagel in the senate is a deep mystery. He should stop impersonating a conservative and a Republican and permanently join his leftist buddies.

"If the Democrats believe that our troops are truly being asked to die in a mistaken cause, they have the obligation..." to make their case for it as well. I need a reason to defund what I believe is a noble effort. They need to convince me I'm wrong. They haven't even tried.
