I submit for your approval...House Resolution 4655 (H.R.4655) Title: To establish a program to support a transition to democracy in Iraq.


It should be the policy of the United States to support efforts to remove the regime headed by Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq and to promote the emergence of a democratic government to replace that regime."

10/5/1998 7:33pm:
On motion to suspend the rules and pass the bill, as amended Agreed to by the Yeas and Nays: (2/3 required): 360 - 38 (Roll No. 482).

Passed Senate without amendment by Unanimous Consent.

Murtha didn't vote on the 1998 bill...fine, he did not nor does not believe that America's national security depends on the successful transition of Iraq to a democratic regime. I'll give him a pass.

But Biden, Kerry, Lugar, Hagel, Levin, Boxer, etc. al. those pathetic, defeatist, fear-mongers in the Senate have no gall, no intesitinal fortitute, to stand by what they voted in 1998 and actually finish the job in Iraq. Instead at the first sign of diificulty we should cut and run, leaving Iraq to Zarqawi and his terrorist thugs.

Don't forget my friends, war is only acceptable so long as it's a Democrat who is leading it. Well these Senators aren't leaders at all, they're politicians. And there playing politics with the national security of the US and playing politics with the lives of American soldiers in Iraq. If they want to actually win, and stop being defeatist for once in their patheic careers, perhaps they should put their presidential ambitions aside for half a second, join the team, and actually root for America, instead of against her.
