Surrender

Today, the Democratic Senate will attempt to surrender to the terrorists again.

This is the second attempt to surrender. Bush vetoed the first attempt, and he promises to veto the second attempt. In the meantime, funding for the troops is being held hostage by defeatists that claim to “support the troops.” How they claim to support the troops while simulataneously withholding troop funding, attempting to surrender, and declaring the “war is lost” is beyond me.

Bush will win this battle. Democrats are so set on surrendering they will eventually surrender themselves and pass a funding bill Bush can sign. Instead of surrendering to terrorists, the Democrats will surrender to Bush.

It’s only a matter of time.

Update: We surrender!

Republicans said the vote amounted to little more than political theater because the bill would be dead on arrival after reaching the White House. Bush said he will veto the bill so long as it contains a timetable on Iraq, as well as $20 billion in spending added by Democrats.

“The solution is simple: Take out the surrender date, take out the pork, and get the funds to our troops,” said Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.

Iranian Embassy

Apparently Iran doesn’t care for the US military action and has listed Russian support for their position. Apparently US troops raided an Iranian office in the Iraqi city of Arbil and are holding 6 Iranians in their role of assisting terrorist in Iraq. Iran claims they are diplomats (or will eventually claim they are diplomats) and says the US is violating international diplomacy protocols

I can understand Iran’s objection. I propose the US detain 47 more Iranians to bring the total to 53, and hold them for at least 14 months. Isn’t that the standard Iran set for detaining US diplomats?
