the chuck stops here

four months ago, sen. chuck hagel (r-ne) described the conditions in Iraq as a “low grade civil war.”

today, his view is much more bleak. in an interview with the omaha world herald, the vietnam war veteran said that the country had descended into “absolute anarchy” and the war was “an absolute replay of vietnam.”

.... “they’re destroying the united states army.“

thank you think progress

"the iraq war should not be debated in the united states on a partisan political platform," the nebraska senator remarked. "this debases our country, trivializes the seriousness of war and cheapens the service and sacrifices of our men and women in uniform. war is not a republican or democrat issue. the casualties of war are from both parties. the bush administration must understand that each american has a right to question our policies in iraq and should not be demonized for disagreeing with them. suggesting that to challenge or criticize policy is undermining and hurting our troops is not democracy nor what this country has stood for, for over 200 years. the democrats have an obligation to challenge in a serious and responsible manner, offering solutions and alternatives to the administration’s policies."

(update) chuck's showing more spine today. (take a note dlc'ers)

urging president bush to turn all u.s. efforts toward "ending this madness," a leading republican senator monday broke with the bush administration and called for an immediate cease-fire in the mideast.

"the sickening slaughter on both sides must end and it must end now," nebraska sen. chuck hagel said. "president bush must call for an immediate cease-fire. this madness must stop."

..."our relationship with israel is special and historic," he said. "but it need not and cannot be at the expense of our arab and muslim relationships. that is an irresponsible and dangerous false choice."

"this is not about setting a timeline," hagel said. "this is about understanding the implications of the forces of reality." - cnn

thank you senator hagel.
