U.S. Is Seen in Iraq Until at Least ’09

By MICHAEL R. GORDON

BAGHDAD, July 23 — While Washington is mired in political debate over the future of Iraq, the American command here has prepared a detailed plan that foresees a significant American role for the next two years.

The classified plan, which represents the coordinated strategy of the top American commander and the American ambassador, calls for restoring security in local areas, including Baghdad, by the summer of 2008. "Sustainable security" is to be established on a nationwide basis by the summer of 2009, according to American officials familiar with the document. LINK


Bravo, Mr. Gordon ------- take two steps forward in your quest to the top of the list of "public enemies".

Cloture Vote Fails to Pass on Cut and Run Democrat Proposal

The Democrat Proposal to turn their backs on the people of Iraq and our valiant military failed to achieve cloture 52 to 47 after a two day marathon of political theater that amounted to little more than the pantering to the anti-war left cowards of Move-On and the rest of the cheerleaders who did not care about the ramifications of a time-line for withdrawel from the field of battle. The Levin/Reid amendment would have sent a crucial signal to al Queda and the enemies against us that we were ready to give in and surrender in the face of victory.

Reid of Nevada voted no? Did I hear this right?

Casa Blanca was just mentioned by the minority leader in refering to tactics employed by the democrats.

Mr. Reid and indeed all of the Democrats should now heed the will of the senate that this nation will not cut and run from our enemies. And this should also send the message to General David Petraeus and our troops that we intend to defeat al queda in Iraq and where ever they may hide in the world. Take that caliphate and shove it where the sun don't shine.

Hopefully this will be the last we hear of defeatism while our military runs al queda out of Iraq during this surge. And then our brave soldiers can return home with honor.

Reid did vote no on cloture------it's called procedural.

Independent*

* Not governed by a foreign power; self-governing. Free from the influence, guidance, or control of another or others; self-reliant: an independent mind. Not determined or influenced by someone or something else; not contingent: a decision independent of the outcome of the study.

Who: the Second Continental Congress
What: the Declaration of Independence
Where: Philadelphia
When: July 4, 1776
Why: to declare the Thirteen colonies "Free and Independent States... Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown" of King George III.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident,that all men are created equal,that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

In 1778, General George Washington marked the Fourth of July with a double ration of rum for his soldiers and an artillery salute.

When Benjamin Franklin said, upon signing the Declaration of Independence, "We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately," it was no less than the literal truth.

As we celebrate the 4th of July, this nation needs more than ever to "hang together", and let us remember those who are giving the ultimate sacrifice to bring independence to the people of Iraq and Afghanistan that also deserve to be free from tyranny and oppression. May God bless all of them and watch over them in their endeavors. Amen.





And "Let Freedom Ring" !!!
