After the Rhetoric

So after all of the rhetoric we find out that the Congress supports the war in Iraq. They realize that we have no choice but to win. FromFox News.

WASHINGTON - The House on Friday overwhelmingly rejected calls for an immediate troop withdrawal from Iraq, a vote engineered by Republicans that was intended to fail. Democrats derided the vote as a political stunt. 

"Our troops have become the enemy. We need to change direction in Iraq," said Rep. John Murtha of Pennsylvania, a Democratic hawk whose call a day earlier for pulling out troops sparked a nasty, personal debate over the war.

The House voted 403-3 to reject a nonbinding resolution offered by the GOP calling for the military to pull out of Iraq.

So Democrats like Murtha can play politics with the war. But when it comes to a vote they realize that American's will never tolerate anything more than their rhetoric.

It reminds me of just last year. The ELECTION was pretty much a referendum on the war. GWB won with the largest vote total in history. He received the largest majority in 16 years. Things have not changed that much in a year.
