Letter to the Editor, Wall Street Journal

Letter to the Editor, Wall Street Journal

by Q.D. Thompson

Dear Editor:

As a retired U.S. Naval Reserve Officer who served eight years of active duty, five during WWII and then recalled for three more years during the Korean Conflict, it was heart-sickening
to read the Wall Street Journal (no doubt the fairest and most balanced newspaper in the country) editorial, "No Vote for the Troops", Sept. 20-21, '08. It is quite evident the reputation of the 2007-08 do nothing Congress with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Speaker Nancy Pelosi leading the charge continues to enhance this reputation by their negative actions which definitely reflect their self-center political hopes and desires that the U.S. will fail in their engagement in Iraq in order to strengthen their position with the public and to block a vote on a bipartisan resolution "recognizing the strategic success of the troops in Iraq" and thanking our men and women in uniform for their efforts.

For their selfish short-sighted leadership and their failure to support all phases of this world conflict, as was needed in order to win WWI & WWII, to guarantee success for our survival, Senator Reid and Speaker Pelosi, who seems incapable of putting two comprehensive sentences together, should be indicted as traitors to their country and brought to trial.

Something needs to be done immediately to entice all of our politicians to work in concert to assure the salvation of our civilization.

Quinton D. Thompson
