Poll: 70% Support Fully Funded Withdrawal or NOTHING

News From Rep. Barbara Lee:

Asked what Congress should do with President Bush’s pending Iraq supplemental request, the poll found that 70 percent of respondents want Congress to either vote against the President’s request or require that funds can only be used for my plan to protect troops and bring them home. And by a two to one margin, respondents favored requiring that funds be spent on redeployment instead of providing the administration funds without conditions

She asks us to contact our representatives and support this plan. That is my intention, and I hope you’ll join me.

    It looks like the out of Iraq Caucus is going to be giving speeches on the House floor this evening. CSPAN 1 is where the action will be.

    Brian Bilbray’s stance.  Actually, looking pretty poor for my voice being heard after today’s revelations on Pelosi.  Feinstein I’ve written off.  Boxer+. 

  1. This is more Bullshit.

    The American people like war, they like violence they want the incompetently directed fascist american troops to STAY IN IRAQ!!!!!!!

    Redeployment is STAYING IN IRAQ. Gradual withdrawal is STAYING IN IRAQ and leaving “Someday”.

    You either Stay or You Go. And you are all being manipulated with this bullshit about gradual responsible withdrawal of the American raping penis from the womb of Iraq and talk about Redeployment.  Redoploying the rapist just means…”hey! I think I will rape Iraqis in the North and leave the ones in the South alone for awhile.”

    There is no more time for this non sense about “grey areas” and responislbe withdrawal….JUST GET THE FUCK OUT and START NOW….

    If it takes 5 months to leave fine…START NOW!

    America is a terrorist nation that calls the people it is terrorizing terrorists….C”MON…Please stop “talking” about withdrawing the troops.

    No one is in the streets and there is no popular support from the American sheeple for immediate withdrawal.

    He has already signed and never waivers on his vote to end the occupation.

    My Senators OTOH are worthless. My drunken Repug Senator is a firm supporter of Bush’s agenda. And my new once in a while Dem Senator is really into protecting the troops by keeping them in Iraq so they can be killed.

    you might find interesting, re the effects of U.S. Congress passing resolution stating there was an Armenian genocide.  This is from NYT:

    Appearing outside the West Wing after that meeting, Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates noted that about 70 percent of all air cargo sent to Iraq passed through or came from Turkey, as did 30 percent of fuel and virtually all the new armored vehicles designed to withstand mines and bombs.

    ‘They believe clearly that access to airfields and to the roads and so on in Turkey would be very much put at risk if this resolution passes and the Turks react as strongly as we believe they will,’ Mr. Gates said, referring to the remarks of General Petraeus and Mr. Crocker.

  2. this sure is an interesting development

  3. that the public wants them to use the power of the purse to bring the troops home?

    The public sees through the “abandoning the troops” meme.
