Today the senate took an important step in bringing our troops back from Iraq.
They voted on the Feingold-Reid amendment to end the war. This bill would require re-deployment of troops within 120 days, with full re-deployment ending on March 21,2008.
Unfortunately, the bill did not pass.
I genuinely believe that this war/administration is the greatest catastrophe in American history.
"US President George W Bush has vetoed a [previous] bill that would have set a deadline for the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq. The bill was approved by BOTH the House of Representatives and the Senate.
Congressional opponents of the war believe the veto signals that now it is the President alone who must take responsibility for continuing America's involvement, and the casualties. " [taken from a BBC on-line article which you may read HERE].
How in world do we think can we "export democracy" with a neo-Nazi in power?
Bush simply DOES NOT REPRESENT THE WILL OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!!!
It boggles the mind, what this demonic duo (Bush-Cheney) have gotten away with...in a word MURDER. Yup. Lie to the Americans, play dumb (very easy for Bush) then have your way.
To date, there have been Over 3400 American casualties. 30,000 injured!!!!!!!!!! 30,000!!!!!!!
There have been between 64-70,000 Iraqi civilian casualties.
We are putting our troops in harms way FOR NO REASON. We are not dealing with ONE civil war in Iraq... presently there are MANY regional civil wars and the unspoken edict among all Iraqis: KILL AMERICANS. Over 70% of Iraqis want the US OUT OF IRAQ!!!
I, for one, cannnot stand for this BULLSHIT. I am so tired of it.
Below is a list of how the senators voted.
PLEASE, if you see one (or both) of your senators on the list, I URGE you to call them and ask them to give us what the majority of Americans want to see: THE END OF THIS HORRIFIC, POINTLESS WAR!!!!!!
Peace and love to all...and GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS!! AMEN.
