....and get out of Iraq now!

http://stevegilliard.blogspot.com/2006/02/leavin-on-jet-plane.html
A new poll to be released today shows that U.S. soldiers overwhelmingly want out of Iraq — and soon.......

Only 23 percent backed Mr. Bush's position that they should stay as long as necessary. In contrast, 72 percent said that U.S. troops should be pulled out within one year. Of those, 29 percent said they should withdraw "immediately."


They want out because they see - firsthand - that it's a disaster. They are sick and tired of getting shot at from all sides just to provide Bush political cover.

Bush can't back down now without looking like an idiot (to the 34% of Americans who still, beyond reason, approve of his policies). So we keep our soldiers in Iraq, pretending to make progress.

Let me repeat: American soldiers are dying every day because President Bush refuses to admit he was wrong. His pride is more important than the lives of young Americans.
