But, you say “the surge is working, so why do I need to support it?” Not that surge, silly. The political surge. “What political surge?” you ask. “Precisely,” comes the reply. Curtain falls.
The military surge in Iraq may be succeeding beyond anyone’s wildest dreams but it’s time to capitalize and start working on the long term solution to the Iraq question. And, naturally, Sam Brownback has the answer. And, fortunately, most in the Senate seem to finally be realizing that simple truth.
On Wednesday the Senate gave overwhelming support to Sam Brownback’s Iraq plan (co-sponsored by Biden), the three state solution. Now it’s time for the House to follow suit. Here’s Senator Brownback’s response to the 75-23 victory:
“I am very pleased that my colleagues in the Senate recognized on a bi-partisan basis that we must have a political surge in Iraq to match the military surge that our troops have waged with courage and valor. The men and women of our Armed Forces have performed valiantly and successfully in quelling the turmoil in Iraq,” Brownback said. “What has not matched the effort of our troops has been the political and diplomatic effort needed to end violence among the three factions in Iraq–Sunni, Shiite, and Kurd–so that stability can be reached.”
The Daily Brownbacker has a petition for you to sign if you want victory in Iraq. I respectfully suggest that all Brownbackers and other good Americans sign it. It’s the right thing to do: support the solution. Support Sam Brownback. Support America.
