Put up or shut up!

It is time that the Democrats pull their collective head out from there ass and see what is going on in the world.

PR Newswire: Pelosi: President’s Policy is a Path to 10 More Years of War in Iraq

AP: Democrat Reid: Iraq plan unacceptable

Reuters: Democratic 2008 contenders bicker over Iraq pullout

If they truly believe that the Iraq policy is wrong then they have the ability to pull the plug…but they won’t do it. They can’t do it.

Democrats could, right now, vote to de-fund the Iraq War and have the troops home by year end. So why wont they do it?

They know that the chaos that would ensue in the Middle East as well as the image of US soldiers turning tail and running would only cause bitter hatred of not only the US abroad but of the Democrat Party here at home.

To make myself perfectly clear…the reason the Democrats will not vote to de-fund the war is because they know that they are wrong.

They know that the ‘Bush-Petreaus Doctrine’ is correct and that given time the Iraqi government and military will be fully functional. They also know that if they were to win in 2008 (I’m highly doubtful that they will) they will have to continue helping the Iraqis and therefore be labeled as a liar or a ‘flip-flopper.’ That is why they want Bush to end it…if they do, they look weak…if they wait until 2008, they won’t end it, so they will look like liars…if they win and they end the war prematurely they will be responsible for the consequences of leaving the vacuum in the Middle East…they would rather blame Bush for that.

In the end it looks like the Democrats are “damned if they do and damned if they don’t.” 2008 just might be another sweep…with the Democrats on the losing side this time.
