….I got an email with this:
Petri against troop surge
Republican says ‘new way’ needed to win Iraq war
Rep. Tom Petri has joined a small but growing number of Republican lawmakers who have broken ranks with the Bush administration by showing disapproval to escalate troop levels in Iraq.
I honestly didn’t believe that Congressman Petri was no naive as to believe that he is actually voting against the so called “surge”. No Congressman, what you are voting against is the President of the United States and the troops he commands.
I may physically be in Tennessee right now, but I’m still a legal resident of Wisconsin and the 6th Congressional District. Needless to say, I am none too happy with the Congressman’s vote.
If the troops were actually allowed to do the job, there would be no need for an increase in numbers. However, until the blinders are removed from the morons in Washington, give them as many troops as they need, WITH the equipment necessary.
