Send US Senators to patrol Iraq on foot
It's a dangerous proposition for our delicate Senators. But it's the only way to get the cowardly weasels to reverse their vote to keep American troops in Iraq.
A bomb killed a U.S. soldier on a foot patrol Saturday south of Baghdad, the military said, after a particularly deadly week for U.S. forces in Iraq.What a terrible way to die. They haven't announced his name yet, but thousands of families must be holding their breath, hoping that their son, brother, father, or husband was somewhere else at the moment that unlucky soldier lost his life.
The soldier with the Multi-National Division in Baghdad died at about 7:20 a.m. Saturday due to injuries "suffered from a bomb explosion while on a dismounted patrol south of Baghdad," the military said.
The military also announced the deaths of two other soldiers from the same division Friday.Meanwhile, our Senators were acting out in Congress - some playing armchair warriors, others pretending to oppose the war when indeed they voted 96-0 to support it.
One soldier was killed in a roadside bomb about 2:45 a.m. Friday in the capital, according to a statement. The attack occurred hours before clashes broke out on a volatile street near the heavily guarded Green Zone, prompting the Iraqi government to impose a curfew.
Another soldier from the same division died in a "non-combat incident" at about 5 p.m. Friday, the military said, adding the incident was under investigation.* * *
Fifteen U.S. servicemembers have died or been found dead in Iraq this week.
Both measures were offered as amendments to a largely noncontroversial $571 billion defense bill that passed 96-0 later in the day.This kind of play acting won't end until each of these beaurocratic bozos, adept at prevaricating and smiling for the camera, is forced to put his or her own life and the lives of their children where their vote is.
