  Murtha again declares defeat. How exactly did he get 'hereo' status among the Donk's again?
Murtha says Army 'broken, worn out' - PittsburghLIVE.com: "The U.S. Army is 'broken, worn out' and 'living hand-to-mouth' from fighting in Iraq and may not be able to meet future military threats to this country's security, U.S. Rep. John Murtha said Wednesday.

'They're barely getting by,' said Murtha, a ranking member of the powerful House Appropriations Committee and Subcommittee on Defense.

'They're drawing back on equipment buys down the road,' said the Democrat, who was in Latrobe, Westmoreland County, yesterday to address an invited group of community and business leaders. 'We are not able to buy the equipment because of the cost of the war.'

Murtha, of Johnstown, Cambria County, said the Pennsylvania National Guard is 'stretched so thin' that it won't be able to deploy fully equipped units to Iraq until next year because of equipment shortages and a lack of training for soldiers."
