House Passes Resolution Opposing Bush’s Plan to Send More Troops to Iraq

Those LOW life, scum sucking, lily livered, chicken shits!

House Democrats on Friday sent President Bush the clearest message to date on his Iraq policy by passing a resolution that opposes a plan to send an additional 21,500 troops to the war-ravaged country.

It’s not like I didn’t know this was coming, but as always, I am optimistic that lightning will strike, and those cowards will wake up.

The vote wrapped up a four-day marathon debate leading up to the vote. The Senate is expected to take up the same debate for a test vote on Saturday. The resolution vote, however, won’t formally alter Bush’s policy in Iraq or stop the surge of troops into Baghdad.

Four days they could actually have been doing something USEFUL!? Instead, they let our troops know they could care less if they live or die. Those 246 might as well have put a bulls-eye on every single soldier, sailor and Marine.

“The bipartisan resolution today may be nonbinding, but it will send a strong message to the president: We here in Congress are committed and supporting our troops,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California on the House floor. “The passage of this legislation will signal change in direction in Iraq that will end the fighting and bring our troops home safely and soon.”

The message is that you do NOT support our troops, and you should ALL be committed! In a friggin’ dungeon!

“What we now have in Iraq is a defeat. We cannot achieve the illusions of the Bush administration that we will be able to create a stable unified liberal democracy in Iraq that is pro-American,” said Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif. “Instead, we have sectarian fighting, death squads and a disabled Middle East that threatens to be engulfed by the nightmare that we have unleashed.”

Waxman, you can bite my ass!

Republicans warn the vote will embolden terrorists and insurgents, and send the wrong message to the troops on the ground, while Democrats argue that the troop surge will risk more American lives.

Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., asked fellow lawmakers to vote against the resolution, calling it “misguided and dangerous.”

Misguided is just a polite way of saying “you are condemning our troops, and with them, our nation, you cowardly pricks”.

You’ll have to forgive me. I don’t think I’ve ever been so angry and disgusted by the actions of Congress since they did the same thing to Viet Nam.

  3. I guess I got a tad miffed? Sorry ’bout that. I’m a patient, and peaceful woman, but ya know, I’d like to smack each and every one them right now.

    Luckily, I have since calmed down. 🙂

  4. There are as many reasons as there are votes (on both sides), and to lump all together is a bit short sighted. There are legitimate reasons to oppose the surge, and it does not preclude supporting troups no matter how hard you wish it.

  6. Shameful vote. Al Qaeda must be celebrating again thanks to the Democrats. What treachury! Bush is leading us in a war to protect the freedom and way of life in America and across the globe. The Democrats clearly want us to lose. Thank God, the Republican party still has some candidates with enough backbone for the fight ahead. John McCain springs to mind. I just hope the Republican party embraces him because we will need a leader with his principles and courage in the difficult years ahead. This resolution is a tragic day in American history. Luckily it’s non-binding. However, undoubtedly the Democrats will be doing all we can to ensure Bush and therefore America (and western civilisation) loses this war. How shortsighted. Pulling out now will only mean a return in a few years time when things are much worse.

  7. A couple of cliches always comes to mind when thinking of the Dems, and libs in general: The big picture. They don’t seem to be able to see the big picture. Here’s another one: Can’t see the forest for the trees. They are so focused on destroying the Bush Administration, they are oblvious of the consequences.
