Democrats cave; Bush wins

That is clearly the only way to describe the invasion of Iraq funding bill that will be voted on this week by Congress. The bill removes all time-tables for getting our troops home safely; removes any requirements of accountability by the president; and essentially grants everything Bush has demanded.

What a sad, sad, day for this country and for our troops in harms way in a war that we should not be in in the first place. Clearly the democrats in Congress are not listening to the overwhelming majority of the people who elected them. If they were, then they would be sending the same bill they sent the first time, over and over again until the president could no longer get away with murdering innocent Americans by putting them where they don't belong and never should have been.

Meanwhile, Osama bin Laden is still at large, and the persons and countries responsible for the attack on the USA on 9/11 still have not been brought to justice.
