Raymond J. Keating, wrongly targets Democrats in not supporting the troops

I want to take Newsday’s columnist Raymond J. Keating back in time after reading his Memorial Day column in which he targets the Democratic Party for their non-support of our troops.


As you will read he states, “Democrats again have exposed their party as weak on foreign policy and national security” I want to remind Keating that it was a Republican president along with a Republican congress that invaded a country illegally and tried to connect Iraq to the attacks that befell this nation on 9/11.  Sound foreign policy is never founded upon lies and to do so it creates mistrust of those who would normally side with us.


In the aftermath of 9/11, we had the entire planet behind us in which they rallied support for our victims.  What did President Bush do along with his Republican cohorts?  He squandered what goodwill was extended to the American people and our government when he redeployed our troops from Afghanistan to Iraq.  Do not go blaming the Democrats for that one, Mr. Keating since it was a Republican administration and congress that deceived not only the American people but more importantly our troops.
