This is some news bits from CNN Anderson Cooper AFTER Bush gave his speech last night.
In this, you hear a bit from the Republican Senator Gordon Smith of Oregon, what various GROUPS the US Soldiers are fighting, as well as two Iraq War veterans opposed to this "surge".
When will BUSH listen??
American's GAVE their message LOUD & CLEAR to him in the Nov mid term elections!
Below is a petition from Senator Harry Reid
I doubt Bush will ever listen. And that's a shame, because that's ALSO going to hurt his so-called legacy.. No Escalation - No Way
Dear President Bush,
On Election Day, America spoke with one voice about its desire to end the war in Iraq. In the weeks and months since, members of Congress from both parties have urged you to heed the will of our nation and propose real change. Regrettably you have chosen to ignore the will of the American people. Concern about your escalation strategy is non-partisan. It is opposed by Democrats, it is opposed by Republicans, it is opposed by top military leaders, and it is opposed by an overwhelming majority of the American people.
Democrats, Republicans and the bipartisan Iraq Study Group have all offered you a roadmap to turn Iraq over to the Iraqis, begin the phased redeployment of American troops and end our open-ended commitment to Iraq. America doesn’t need another White House P.R. campaign -- we need a real change of course in Iraq.
