Millions For Bandages, Nothing For Bullets
By Wesley Pruden
The Democrats have done their worst, and now George W. Bush must do his best.
The Senate's 51-47 vote to require the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq within a year, effectively telling al Qaeda and its terrorist allies that if they can tone down the noise for a year the Shi'ites and Sunnis can get on with killing each other in the name of Osama, Mohammed, Allah or any Muslim notability of their choosing. The moderate Muslims everyone here says he wants to help can drop dead (and many of them will).
"Nothing good can come from this bill," Sen. Mitch McConnell, the leader of the Republican minority, told the Senate. "It's loaded with pork and it includes a deadline for evacuation that amounts to sending a 'Save the date' card to al Qaeda."

Great article (there were so many good ones this week! I notice Fred is starting to write!!! I'm a dedicated FredHead!) Well, the Democrat Party isn't shy about wanting us to lose. Someone posited that sending that message to Iran is what got those sailors kidnapped. I wouldn't doubt it. Things like that DO matter.
Over at DU, one post (and probably more than that) said 'I can't see where Iran is wrong...' I couldn't f***ing believe it!
