U.S. Rep. John Murtha, a leading congressional opponent of the war in Iraq, on Thursday said his plans for placing conditions on how President George W. Bush can spend $93.4 billion in new combat funds would effectively stop an American troop buildup.The noise wave generated on the right over this will be loud, but very thin and won't mean a damn thing when the troops are out of there.
"They won't be able to continue. They won't be able to do the deployment. They won't have the equipment, they don't have the training and they won't be able to do the work. There's no question in my mind," the Pennsylvania Democrat said.
Murtha, an ex-Marine in his 18th term, made his remarks in a Web cast on movecongress.org, which hopes to influence Congress to stop the war in Iraq.
