Ending The War

I strongly agree with Senate Democrats' efforts to start bringing our troops home, narrow the mission of those that remain and pursue a political settlement in Iraq.

We should withdraw our combat troops by early 2008, except for a limited number necessary to keep training Iraqis and to deny terrorists a sanctuary.

And we should do that in the context of a comprehensive political, diplomatic and economic strategy that gives us a chance to leave Iraq without leaving chaos behind.


Revise Our Iraq Policy

Reid-Biden-Levin Joint Resolution To Revise United States Policy On Iraq


  • We support the troops;
  • The circumstances cited in the 2002 use of force authorization have changed substantially;
  • U.S. troops should not be policing a civil war;
  • U.S. policy in Iraq must change to emphasize the need for a political solution in order to maximize the chances for success and more effectively wage the war on terror.

Redeployment of U.S. Forces From Iraq

  • The President shall promptly transition the mission of U.S. forces in Iraq and begin the phased redeployment no later than 120 days following enactment;
  • Goal to redeploy all combat forces from Iraq by March 31, 2008 except for a limited number that are essential for the following purposes:
    • Force protection
    • Training and equipping Iraqi troops
    • Targeted counter-terror operations

New Comprehensive Strategy to Ensure Stability in Iraq

  • Redeployment shall be implemented as part of a comprehensive economic, diplomatic, and political strategy that includes sustained engagement with Iraq's neighbors and the international community;
  • New policy seeks to change course, transition the mission, and bring stability to Iraq.

I have signed many a petition to bring our troopshome. The Bush administration had more than enough time to do what they thought had been done. I guess he didn't make enough money off of it yet.

If this had be the 1940's the whole lot of them would be up on war crimes.

Just my two cents. I am so tired of the poitical propaganda on the news that they feed the mindless masses.
