Sheeler: "Establishment D.C. Democrats Need Courage"

Providence, RI - Marine Veteran and progressive Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Carl Sheeler has condemned D.C. lawmakers for their political rhetoric and posturing while risking the lives of U.S. troops in Iraq and using fear of terrorist acts upon American soil.
"On the issue of troop withdrawal, establishment D.C. Democrats need the courage of their convictions. The majority of the public will consider them patriotic and strong, if they fight for an earlier withdrawal. Level with the public and show the courage of your convictions.
"We trained the Sunni and Shia militia. Now they're killing each other and civilians who in turn are conducting reprisal killings and kidnappings. Our troops are in the cross-fire. Since our occupation, Iraqi citizen deaths, sectarian bombings, kidnappings and the number of foreign insurgents have increased multi-fold. We're creating instability that is demoralizing Iraqi citizens. Only 30% of them are optimistic about their future down from 75% three years ago.
"Withdrawing allows our tax dollars to remain in our country for our communities and domestic emergencies. Homeland security funding was halved for Rhode Island next year. We should economically support rebuilding in Iraq; however, there is a civil war now that has cost us over $420 billion and counting in direct U.S. expenditures. The terror is in the Whitehouse and partisan politics. Americans would be safer with stronger domestic security, not politicians afraid of sounding weak at the expense of further lost and damaged troops' lives."
