Manchin’s boldness

July 2, 2011
By Dr. David Turner , The Inter-Mountain

Joe Manchin's recent denunciation of the Afghanistan War demonstrates the depth of frustration with that conflict among Democrats. And he places his finger on precisely the area which is at the root when he states, "It is time to focus on rebuilding American, not on rebuilding Afghanistan." The cost and the loss is simply too much and the burden is unevenly distributed. That Manchin says that he cannot "look West Virginians in the eye" and say they must do without vital services and support an unwinnable war is simply stating the obvious.
