OH-8: Boehner Says American Lives and Treasure "Small Price To Pay" in Iraq
Rep. John Boehner (R-West Chester) said on CNN today that the thousands of American soldiers killed and billions of U.S. dollars spent in the Iraq War are really a "small price to pay" and a "good investment" if the fantasy of stabilizing the Middle East and "stopping Al Qaeda here" comes true:
As if anything that happens in Iraq would "stop Al Qaeda." As if the lives of young Americans is "an investment." As if the modest (and debatable) amount of military progress produced by the surge, with no resulting political progress on the part of the Iraqis to date, was proof of anything except that Iraq is a quagmire.
