Just Exactly What We DON'T Need (Updated and bumped)

(I originally posted this at 2:12 this morning. Updating and changing the time stamp.)

Senate Republicans Pushing for a Plan on Ending the War in Iraq

Washington, Nov. 14 - In a sign of increasing unease among Congressional Republicans over the war in Iraq, the Senate is to consider on Tuesday a Republican proposal that calls for Iraqi forces to take the lead next year in securing the nation and for the Bush administration to lay out its strategy for ending the war.

Senate Weighs Measures Urging Bush Set Limits in Iraq

Nov. 14 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Senate opened debate today on measures that would put the chamber on record for the first time asking President George W. Bush to set limits for keeping American troops in Iraq.

The Bush administration "needs to explain to Congress and the American people its strategy for the successful completion of the mission," say resolutions introduced separately by both Republicans and Democrats.

Now isn't that just f@#$king wonderful? Why don't we just set a date in advance and tell the God-damned jihadis that if they just lie low and wait a little longer we'll pull out and turn the country over to them? The only thing they need to know is that we'll bring our troops home when the legitimate government of Iraq is capable of defending itself, and not a day sooner. I'm too pissed off right now to even put together a coherent explanation of how I feel about this (hint: I've never forgiven Congress for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory in 'Nam after I lost friends and risked my own life there.) I'll probably have more to say after I've gotten some sleep (if I can) and calmed down a little.


A J Strata's about as impressed with this idea as I am. Click here.

Don't miss Lorie Byrd's post here or Bryan Preston's post here.

Keep an eye on the above A J Strata link; he's updated his post four times so far (and quoted my rant!)

You Big Mouth, You!: "Well, they did it. By an overwhelming vote, Frist and his merry band of losers have cost us victory in Iraq. Here’s the item adopted:... " It's interesting to note that Jeff Sessions was one of the 19 Senators to vote against the item. As I've said before, I'd love to see him elected President in '08.

Captain Ed thinks those of us upset about this are overreacting. I'm not convinced.

The Anchoress agrees with Captain Ed. I'm still not convinced.


John Hinderaker at Power Line says the bill wasn't all bad:

[W]e have been clamoring for the Plame Rule to be applied to the dozens of Democratic Party stalwarts who inhabit the CIA, and who constantly leak classified information damaging to the administration to the New York Times and the Washington Post. Today's bill does that, to a degree at least. It includes a provision that would "strip security clearances of federal government officials who knowingly disclose national security secrets."

Zarqawi Backs GOP Call to Unveil War-Ending Plan

(2005-11-15) — Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq, today endorsed a measure introduced by Senate Republicans that would force President George Bush to lay out his plan for ending the war against terrorists in Iraq.

[Read the missing part here. (Damn it, Scott, it's not funny.)]

Sen. John Warner, R-VA, who sponsored the bill, said Mr. Zarqawi’s backing should help garner votes from Senate Democrats who are typically reluctant to support any Republican measure.

“It’s really a tri-partisan effort,” Sen. Warner said.

Captain Ed has come to his senses.  That makes me feel a little better about my opinion.
