Tea party favorite Rep. Allen West (R-FL) said Sunday that it was inappropriate to consider withdrawing from Afghanistan while Americans were still losing their lives there.

Fox News' Chris Wallace noted that Rep. Donna Edwards (D-MD) and other progressive Democrats wanted to pull out of Afghanistan.

"I do," Edwards said. "I think the responsible thing is you raise the debt limit and then we work on the plan that gets us out of Iraq, out of Afghanistan."

"I can see Congressman West shaking his head. He's going to say no way," Wallace noted.

"Let me tell you something that just happened," West began. "On my Blackberry, I get 12 alerts this week of soldiers that lost their lives in Afghanistan. It's not over in Afghanistan."
