Democrats Push Bill That Will Not End The Iraq War

The cowardly spineless and gutless Democraps, who never opposed a pro-Iraq War bill they didn't like, are at it again. They are touting a bill that will rescind a majority of the troops on Iraqi soil; however, the bill, if passed by both Houses of the Congress and signed into law by Herr Bush, will ensure that tens of thousands of the U.S. forces remain assigned to Iraq.

Here's a snip of the first paragraph of an article from AP Google News:

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Democrats' flagship proposal on Iraq is aimed at bringing most troops home. Yet if enacted, the law would still allow for tens of thousands of U.S. troops to stay deployed for years to come.

Of course, the proposal has come under fire from anti-war groups that want the troops out of there. As Tom Andrews, national director of the anti-war group Win Without War and an ex-congressman from Maine, appropriately put it:

[Y]ou've got more holes in here than Swiss cheese.

The story continues further:

The Democratic proposal would order troops to begin leaving Iraq within 30 days, a requirement Bush is already on track to meet as he begins reversing this year's 30,000 troop buildup. The proposal also sets a goal of ending combat by Dec. 15, 2008.

After that, troops remaining in Iraq would be restricted to three missions: counterterrorism, training Iraqi security forces and protecting U.S. assets, including diplomats.

It is terribly pathetic that the Democrats, who were elected to Congress on an anti-war platform in November of 2006, have long since cowardly backpedaled on the issue, considering they are deathly afraid of being pegged as "anti-American," "unpatriotic," and "pro-terrorist" by the neoconservative hawks in the GOP. Moreover, they refuse to show a backbone to their Republican counterparts, despite mouthing off their anti-war rhetoric. Why? Because they are as pro-war as the Republicans, proving furthermore that they never intended to pull the troops out of the war.

Interestingly enough, the Party of Jefferson and its cowardly sycophants, who keep making excuses for their unprincipled, self-serving leadership, have publicly noted in recent months that they weren't elected to bring the troops home from Iraq but to change the war strategy because of their dislike of how Bush managed the war. That certainly shows that they snookered the American people into voting for them in office, all the while remaining entirely loyal to the imperialists running the show in Washington.

Additionally, because of their true intentions having come to light by their own actions, it is a sign that they have betrayed their very own anti-war base. It goes without saying that most of them, with the exception of Dennis Kucinich and maybe Mike Gravel, have no convictions whatsoever. However, it is good that many others from that camp have turned to Ron Paul because of his consistent, principled record on the war, one that neither any of the top-tiered Democratic presidential contenders (including Hillary and Obama) doesn't have.
