Democrats in the House want a timetable for withdrawal:
Anti-war Democrats prevailed on a near-party line vote of 36-28 in the House Appropriations Committee, brushing aside a week-old veto threat from the administration and overcoming unyielding opposition from Republicans.
“I want this war to end. I don’t want to go to any more funerals,” said New York Rep. Jose Serrano, one of several liberal Democrats who have pledged their support for the legislation despite preferring a faster end to the war.
Luckily, the real Americans hold the line in the Senate:
In the Senate, after weeks of skirmishing, Republicans easily turned back Democratic legislation requiring a troop withdrawal to begin within 120 days. The measure set no fixed deadline for completion of the redeployment, but set a goal of March 31, 2008. The vote was 50-48 against the measure, 12 short of the 60 needed for passage.
This is a question of our national survival. We cannot afford to allow weakness or cowardice to hand the terrorists a clear-cut victory. We must all pray that the Democrats do not succeed in their plan to cede Iraq to Osama Bin Laden.
