The Senator from Illinois and messianic candidate for President, has proposed a binding resolution regarding Iraq.
The legislation commences redeployment of U.S. forces no later than May 1, 2007 with the goal of removing all combat brigades from Iraq by March 31, 2008, a date that is consistent with the expectation of the bipartisan Iraq Study Group.
I suppose that along with the Iraq Surrender Group, he'll also want us to bend over and take a few from Iran and Syria. According to Obama:
...too many lives have been lost and too many billions have been spent,"
Considering the latest reports of how many we've captured and killed, that Sadr's forces are demoralized and he's once again angling for political cover and Al Qaeda has been ordered out of Baghdad in anticipation of our surge, one has to wonder what loss of life Obama is trying to stop.
Just one of the stupid points in the resolution:
Stops the Escalation: Caps the number of U.S. troops in Iraq at the number in Iraq on January 10, 2007.
Yeah, let's do that. They're on the run just with our ramp up of operations before the surge has begun in full. Let's make sure we don't follow through on our successes. The enemy needs a breather and time to regroup after all.
Unlike other politicians, at least he has the balls to propose a binding resolution. Although, one wonders if it's reasonable to think such a bill would get very far to begin with. The more certain that it won't succeed the less courage is obviously involved. Whatever the level of testicular fortitude he has, it's unfortunately attached to a mind spouting incredibly poor judgement.
That such an individual is a leading candidate for the Democrat party, says little about the current condition of that party.
