    1.the offense of acting to overthrow one's government or to harm or kill its sovereign.
    2.a violation of allegiance to one's sovereign or to one's state.
    3.the betrayal of a trust or confidence; breach of faith; treachery.




    This is what Senate Democrat Majority Leader Harry Reid said today:

    The war in Iraq "is lost" and a US troop surge is failing to bring peace to the country, the leader of the Democratic majority in the US Congress, Harry Reid, said Thursday.
    "I believe ... that this war is lost, and this surge is not accomplishing anything, as is shown by the extreme violence in Iraq this week," Reid told journalists.


    This mother focker should be tried for treason :angry1: :angry1: !!

    Following definition #3 is a bit rediculous. That follows the old school laws about not discussing the war, back around WW2. I can't say I like that at all.

    Reid and Murtha both. Couple of turncoats. Hanging wouldn't be good enough.

    I think Fox News should talk to some grunts... not officers or senior NCOs... but some salty ass Lance Coolies and Corporals and ask them what they think about his comments. Play the result on national TV for several days/weeks/months. I know when I was a grunt, I would have said "that POS is trying to stab me and my fellow Marines in the back... **** him... if he wants to fight us, he ought to grab an AK-47 and join the terrorists."

    Its not treason, its an opinion and political speech.

    And I have no idea why you guys get so worked up over what the Senate Democrat Majority Leader says? you know that 1) you are going to disagree, 2) you are going to strongly disagree and 3) there is an outside chance that you might have a different opinion.

    Yeah, but that wouldn't be any fun, just accepting that they are asses and we will disagree.

    I am totally embarassed to say he is my state Senator. He is, and always has been a total jerk. I have met him and I cant stand him. He has a handshake like a cold dishrag. He is an Arrgogant, concited, liberal fool who looks down on people and thinks he is above the laws he votes for.
    I have never voted for him. The only reason he is still in office is all those anti nuke California liberal transplants who live in Las Vegas who love him and vote for him.
    The rest of the state cant stand the jerk.
    Las Vegas is nothing more than a suburb of Los Angles. It really sucks that one town can control the politics of a whole state. I would gladly give that hell hole to Calif. Nevada does not need it.

    it isn't just "free speech"... its giving aid and comfort to the enemy by undermining our war effort. Some people learned something from Vietnam... other people didn't. The Vietnamese "held on" because political morons here in the US gave them hope that they could outlast us. This isn't right wing propaganda... the guy in charge of the North's military said as much in his book after the war.

    That is exactly what Mertha and Reid and Kennedy etc are trying to do now... score political points by stabbing our grunts in the back. If we lose, they "win" politically. That is what it is ALL about. There is NO other logical conclusion that can be reached via the facts at hand. If he thought we were going to lose, he doesn't need to announce that fact to the world... unless he wants the enemy to know that he thinks it.. and is saying it. Honestly, is there any way the Senator from Nevada could help the enemy any more than he is already? nope. If he grabbed an AK he'd just get his old ass killed.... but stabbing our boys in the back... that he can do from right where he is. The people of Nevada should be ashamed of themselves.

    Study U.S. History young man :D . The Civil War and WWII for example.

    As the Civil War started, in the very beginning of Lincoln's presidential term, a group of "Peace Democrats" proposed a peaceful resolution to the developing Civil War by offering a truce with the South, and forming a constitutional convention to amend the U.S. Constitution to protect States' rights. The proposal was ignored by the Unionists of the North and not taken seriously by the South. However, the Peace Democrats, also called copperheads by their enemies, publicly criticized Lincoln's belief that violating the U.S. Constitution was required to save it as a whole. With Congress not in session until July, Lincoln assumed all powers not delegated in the Constitution, including the power to suspend habeas corpus. In 1861, Lincoln had already suspended civil law in territories where resistance to the North's military power would be dangerous. In 1862, when copperhead democrats began criticizing Lincoln's violation of the Constitution, Lincoln suspended habeas corpus throughout the nation and had many copperhead democrats arrested under military authority because he felt that the State Courts in the north west would not convict war protesters such as the copperheads. He proclaimed that all persons who discouraged enlistments or engaged in disloyal practices would come under Martial Law.

    Among the 13,000 people arrested under martial law was a Maryland Secessionist, John Merryman. Immediately, Hon. Roger B. Taney, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States issued a writ of habeas corpus commanding the military to bring Merryman before him.

    The guy is an idiot. I dont agree with the surge and I dont like the fact that so many troops are going back for 2-3 tours over in Iraq, but I wouldnt say we are losing. I would never say we are losing.

    I wonder how much money the democrats are paying the media to focus on all the negative of the war instead of the facts.

    Someone, somewhere supports us, but its always the Debbie Downers (SNL fans will know that one) that make it on the TV. To say something like that in a closed session of Congress is one thing but to say it to the media is a real slap in the face.

    Well lets see theres an election next year so for the next 16 or so months the democrates will be trying to give the republicans black eyes. As for the war, I've been there and Ive been to Bosnia. If our guys need more help then send it. I belive it's all political nonsense that we need help or are loosing. The guys i know, the ones on the ground, said things have gotten better. Of course its not the best place in the world but neither is compton CA. Do we need more troops (police) there? And why arn't we focused on the violence and deaths in our own country? More peaple die here on a daily basis then in Iraq.......OK I'm getting preachy, time to get down off my soap box.

    When I was a Nevadan I didn't like Reed either. My parents still live there and they don't like him. It's southern nevadas fault that he is still in office.
