WE’LL CALL IT “SURRENDER WITHOUT RESPONSIBILITY!” No, wait — get me rewrite!
Top House Democrats, working in concert with anti-war groups, have decided against using congressional power to force a quick end to U.S. involvement in Iraq, and instead will pursue a slow-bleed strategy designed to gradually limit the administration’s options.
Led by Rep. John P. Murtha, D-Pa., and supported by several well-funded anti-war groups, the coalition’s goal is to limit or sharply reduce the number of U.S. troops available for the Iraq conflict, rather than to openly cut off funding for the war itself.
How brave of them.
UPDATE: A simple question: “What will the left fight for?”
I believe the answer is “power.”
