“My colleagues are divorced from reality with this vote, and this vote is a mistake, but the war will be funded because the President will veto this”.
With this John McCain went against the Democrats for once saying that ‘They’re micromanaging the war’ was wrong. That this bill, that was passed with a 50-48 vote, set a time table for the withdrawl of our troops, but had so much “pork” added, like tours of the White House, that is shows a total lack of concern for the welfare of our troops.
I agree. If they were so concerned for our troops, they would stop trying to “micro-manage” the war and just pull the funding and bring the troops home now. But they don’t have the nerve to do this because they know that would be wrong, and against the will of the majority of the people.
To me, this means also, that they know their polls saying that the American people are turning against the war is wrong. As seen on Fox News this morning, the bill that was passed was just a supplemental bill filled with more “pork” that was put there with the intention of making government bigger, and less for helping our brave soldiers. People, we need to speak out against this, because even if we don’t admit to it, deep down we all know without a doubt the enemy we are fighting will NOT stay in Iraq and the region around there, if we withdraw and bring our troops home. They will follow the withdrawl back here to America. And do you realize what that will give us people? I will tell you if you don’t…
It will give us a NEW WAR, that we will not be able to run from, because it will be here on American soil. When that happens, and I mean WHEN, NOT IF the 3,000 plus American deaths we have had so far will be minor in comparison! When that happens, we had better hope that everyone will have a weapon, because weapons will be needed. Believe it!
Are we crazy people? I do not believe we are, but that bill passed yesterday borders on that.
We as citizens need to get our representatives to take off their blinders so they can see the big picture and start seeing past their petty and wrong ideas on this.
You want protection? Leave our troops alone to do their jobs, or you will soon be doing their jobs yourself, because the enemy will come here, and when that happens many, many more Americans will die, magnifying probably one hundred fold the 3,000 plus dead we have now, because we citizens are NOT trained for war like our troops are.
The ball is in your court now. What are you going to do? Help defend our interests, or abandon America? Those are your only choices here.
Let our troops win this war, and keep us safe or bring them home and lose many many many more American lives when our enemy follows our troops home.
Your move. Hope you choose right!
God Bless America
