    So there's a new Bill being voted on today concerning the war in Iraq here's the basics of it

    Suplemental Funding for our soldiers in Iraq

    Over $100,000,000 in line items added to do various things aimed at getting Democrats to vote for it (aid to spinnach famers, etc. The indiviual items were aimed in the districts of those Democrats who would have otherwise voted agianst it according to the Democratic party).

    A mandate that all troops will be pulled uout of Iraq by Aug 2008, regardless of the situation at that time

    So there it is, you can't support 1/3 or 2/3 or it. it's a striaght up or down vote in DC so it's straight up or down here

    I'm voting no because while the domestic aid package is worthy of funding it should be presented on it's own merit and not used as a gold plating to another bill

    and

    withdrawal regardless of situation has never won any war. The day this passes (if it does) you will have told Al Qaeda how long, to the day, they have to hold out for. It would be a poor idea to show them the light at the end of the tunnel IMO

    in short, wars are ended when they are won, not won when they are ended

    yeah I thought it might but it still must pass in the Senate and they have no use for the pork barrel spending that was so attractive in the house

    AND the president can Veto it, but if he does I'm sure Pelosi will want an investigation on that too
