Democrats have finally resolved to see the war in Iraq through to a successful conclusion no matter how long it takes.
Oops . . . that should have read “the war over Iraq.”
“Those of us who oppose this war will be back again and again and again and again until this war has ended,” said Rep. Jim McGovern, D-Mass.
McGovern . . . now why does that name sound so familiar?
It’s not just Democrats, some Republicans are demanding that something be done this summer:
Sen. John Warner, R-Va., said Thursday that if the security situation in Iraq does not improve by mid-July, the president should consider adopting a new strategy there.
But how will the Senate measure improvement since it won’t be until Septmber that Gen. David Petraeus reports to Congress the status of operations? “Also due by September is an independent assessment of progress made by the Iraqi government.”
I suppose that Warner has already made up his mind now that whatever the military does over the next four months will fail. But he supports the troops . . .
