Democrats give way on deadline for Iraq in showdown with White House

Democrats in Congress have relented on their insistence that a war spending measure set a date for withdrawing U.S. combat troops from Iraq. Instead, they moved toward a deal with President George W. Bush that would impose new conditions on the Iraqi government.

Don't Think of a US Soldier, Unarmed, Abandoned in Iraq's Civil War!

Jeff Cohen writes: "For years, Team Bush has sought to shroud their devastating and deepening Iraq occupation in the myth of troop protection.... The shared pretense of the White House and Democratic leaders is that funding the Iraq occupation is somehow a program on behalf of the troops. Like a subsidy for family farmers.... What Democrats need to be saying, repeatedly, is that it's Bush/Cheney who abandoned several thousand US troops to avoidable deaths in a disastrous occupation, and tens of thousands to horrible injuries. And that they're willing to abandon still more troops to unnecessary death and injury. Democrats also need to talk about polls that consistently show most US troops in Iraq support withdrawal, as do most Iraqis."
