    Once again, Dems are bringing back their Surrender At All Costs bill in an attempt to appease both the terrorists and their base


    Senate eyes Iraq pullout once again
    By Sean Lengell
    July 11, 2007

    Senate Democrats yesterday called for withdrawing most U.S. troops from Iraq by April 30 — less than two months after a similar measure was soundly defeated — as the White House dispatched its top war advisers to Capitol Hill to embolden Republican allies.

    Sen. Carl Levin, Michigan Democrat and chairman of the Armed Services Committee, said setting a troop withdrawal timetable will force Iraqi political leaders to take responsibility for their own country.

    "The legislation that we are proposing ... would give commanders the flexibility to the pace of reductions and the units to be reduced, and I think it's the appropriate way to go," said Sen. Jack Reed, Rhode Island Democrat, who co-sponsored the measure with Mr. Levin.

    Republicans leaders called the maneuver premature, saying that President Bush's surge strategy is starting to pay dividends and that any major changes shouldn't occur before Gen. David H. Petraeus provides his September report on the state of the war.

    "September is the time when this issue will be reopened. Why we have to go through with it again in the month of July is frankly a puzzlement to me," said Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican.

    A key progress report being briefed to lawmakers tomorrow will say that the Iraqi government has not met any of its targets for reform, which include establishing laws to disarm militias, giving equal legal protections to all sects and sharing oil revenue among the Kurds, Shi'ites and Sunnis.

    But the report said some progress has been made in about a half-dozen areas of the country, including reducing violence in Anbar province, according to the Associated Press

    turning over security operations in Iraq to the military forces of the legitimate Iraqi government that we have personally trained is surrendering to no one.

    who is this "enemy" we are supposedly "surrendering" to?

    is this "enemy" more powerful than shiite militias and sunni militias and the iraqi army?

    you didn't answer my questions.

    try again:who is this "enemy" we are supposedly "surrendering" to?

    is this "enemy" more powerful than shiite militias and sunni militias and the iraqi army together?

    you have never answered them.

    you still stick by your goofy scenario where AQ in Iraq will, somehow, defeat the sunni insurgent militias, and then will defeat the Iraqi army, and then, with the help of the shiites in Iran, they will defeat Sadr's Mahdi shiite army and then ask Iran to come over and rule Iraq with them...but if they ask for too much power, Iran will kill them..... and you still stick by that goofiness even when the reports come out that show that AQ in Iraq is targeting Iran. Why can't you ever stand and defend anything?
