The Al Q Congress

"The message Congress just sent to them all was, ‘Hold on, we’ll stop the surge, we’re going to leave – and you can slaughter the innocent with our blessing.’" Ralph Peters writes today. "We’ve reached a low point in the history of our government when a substantial number of legislators would welcome an American defeat in Iraq for domestic political advantage."

The Republicans look ridiculous enough when they kowtow to their anti-abortion, can’t-live-without-school-prayer base. But the Democrat base now is the hard Left which is only interested in anything that’s anti-American. What the Dems are doing now is going to get more American soldiers killed, plain and simple. I think the two-party system is in need of a serious overhaul. Let the loonies form their own parties and leave the rest of us alone.

UPDATE  Republicans successfully blocked the same Dems move in the Senate. But New York Dem Sen. Charles Schumer promises that the anti-war fight has only begun: "There will be resolution after resolution, amendment after amendment . . . just like in the days of Vietnam. The pressure will mount, the president will find he has no strategy, he will have to change his strategy and the vast majority of our troops will be taken out of harm’s way and come home." And then we can wait for the next 9/11.
