Congress has moral obligation

-A A +A

 

   

As Washington engages in a heated political debate about the federal deficit, both parties agree that spending should be cut and no program seems entirely safe from the budget-slashing ax. 

But history tells us that congress often makes mistakes during periods of indiscriminate budget-cutting. And this time, the consequences could be tragic for our soldiers still in harm’s way.

As other disasters and conflicts take center stage, rarely anymore does cable news feature our troops fighting in Afghanistan and still in danger in Iraq. 

But their peril is no less real. Insurgents and terrorists continue to carry out ambushes, plant improvised explosive devices and engage in fire fights against Americans. 

Too many of our brave men and women are still coming home in flag-draped coffins. Our troops need and deserve our continued support.

Sadly, they haven’t always received it in recent years. Who can forget the scandalous way that the Bush Administration and congress both failed to provide our troops with the body armor and armor-clad vehicles they needed in Iraq? 

Yet we seem to have forgotten when it comes to a pressing, unmet need in Afghanistan and Iraq today: modern communications.
