GOP Proposes, Engineers Defeat Own Iraq Resolution

watched a house debate last night about a pull out from Iraq. Is was a "sense of the house" resolution nothing binding, nothing serious. I saw it as a huge grandstanding propaganda play. I have no idea how many people watched from around this country, but it really doesn't matter. To me it was a grandstanding maneuver that serves no one in the hinterlands. Maybe it makes some people feel good, there is a sense purpose for them when they stand up and lie about facts not in evidence on the house floor. Who knows their motivations.
there is another "sense of the congress" that I'm getting loud and clear, and that is that if the united states doesn't remain in a perpetual war with the rest of the planet there can be no peace or security here at home. As we have been repeatedly told warned admonished, " if we don't fight them there we will have to fight them on mainstreet u.s.a.". Just as the specter of "mushroom clouds over Cleveland" and the 20 minutes away attack by drones of death were foisted upon us here as a pretext to invading Iraq. The next series of conflicts will also be hyped by imaginary foes, imaginary weapons and misidentified attacks.
so as long as no car bombs are going off in every city in the u.s. I guess these righteous indignant bastards will have their way with the blood and treasure , not only of this nation but any country they deem evil enough for a bombing run and pre-emptive invasion.

WASHINGTON -- The Republican-controlled House spurned calls for an immediate pullout of troops from Iraq in a vote hastily arranged by the GOP that Democrats vociferously denounced as politically motivated.

"To cut and run would invite terrorism into our backyards, and no one wants to see troops fighting terrorism on American soil," Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Ill., said Friday night after the House, as planned, rejected a GOP-written resolution for immediate withdrawal.

The vote, held as lawmakers rushed toward a two-week Thanksgiving break, was 403-3.
