House Iraq resolution: Splinters Illinois Dems.

| 8 Comments

I just put together the Illinois delegation roll call from the Friday morning vote on the GOP written Iraq resolution. The measure passed on a 256-153 vote and served to dramatize the splits over the war among Democrats, nationally and in Illinois--just what the Republicans wanted.

Rham doesn't support the troops? WOW ! You cant support the troops and not the mission. Rham lost 42 Dems and Kudos to Lipinski and Bean for supporting the troops! Wow Rham ,you didn't want to support the troops winning the war on terror, ouch. Thats not exactly what I call stellar leadership in more ways than one, LOL.

As a result of this vote in Iraq two American GI's are missing you better hope and pray this vote did not cause this.Playing politics with our kids life's is a lowest thing you can do.

Hey Dale , you say your a republican but you havent said one thing positive about republicans? Remember them the party that supports the military? Remember Reagan ,you probably voted for carter, twice. The problem with people like you is, I am a vet you said "you represent republican vets " in your group. I think you represent a ghost group, I cant find your group anywhere once I do I am sending you posts to the members ,because we dont need republicans like YOU representing us. We all know service members vote overwhelingly republican, and you support the party that is anti soldiers, anti war on terror ,you support Frank Murtha over our boys, you have your own agenda and now your been knocked off your high horse, you should be ashamed of yourself! Soldiers die because of people like you and Murtha. People like you and john kerry , and murtha are the enemies best friend. Where can I find info about your group?

One can support the war on terror without supporting the way the administration is waging this war.

You can check voting records here in DuPage it has a Big R next to my name. I will support Republucans and say something good when real ones show up.Look at the Corruption by DeLay, Hastert, Judy Barr,and more in Congress and Senate.Running this Country in to bankruptcy. Lying about the War. Owen other Coutries huge debts.Sending Troops back to Iraq with PTSD on Meds. I work for veterans and the returning troops getting their benefits that Republicans cut. I will say something nice when the Party I am a part of becomes what it use to be. Again if you missed the Web Site vfp-il.org or if you where a veteran you would of saw our booth at Navy Pier when they had the veterans basket of rights there.

How on earth is it that Republicans can say, with a straight face, that they support the troops? You support bringing them home in body bags, perhaps. You support sending them over there to occupy a country that doesn't want us. You support not giving them the body and vehicular armor that will keep them safe. You don't support the living breathing soldiers. You see them as future corpses. You see them as tools to support the horrible policies of this administration. When a soldier comes out opposing this Occupation, you attack him. You question his patriotism. You question his motives. You attack and defame him. Republicans DO NOT support soldiers, you support seeing soldiers die in unnecessary occupations and wars. You don't support giving them adequate protection, you don't support withdrawing them from an occupying a country where they are public enemy number one.

When does the occupation end? When do we achieve this so called victory? You call it a war, I say Bullcrap!. The war ended in 2003. This is an occupation. How do you win an occupation? How do you defeat a resistance?

Tell me, please, what objective must be achieved for this President to claim victory and withdraw our kids from Iraq? There are no WMD's. So that one's out. Saddam is on trial. So that one's out. You got Zarquawi. So that one's out. They've had 3 or 4 elections now. So that one's out. They have a Constitution. So that one's out. What objective must be achieved?

When do our brothers, our sisters, our children get to come home? When will you stand up and support our soldiers? Or do you prefer to see them continue to come home missing limbs or in body bags?

I support the soldiers. End the occupation. Bring 'em home. Alive.

Jerry 101 They do not support the Troops or veterans. Go to vote smart they have their voting record there .Every Republican got failing grades on veterans issues,When you send troops in harms way you support them there and at home.Rick angry because I am Republuican and know their lies and talking points.Hell I even worked for Judy Biggert a few years ago to keep her in office .Now I know after looking at her voting record on veterans that was a mistake

Dale 101, you a moron you would rather elect someone like Rham ,who would put a judge on the bench who make god illegal ,in the pledge of allegence. Read jerry 101 and realize this is who you sound like now. This loser. We are on the verge of changing the middle east.For good. And this coward college professor type who is smarter than all of us, has his solution similar to Dale the Republican. I get a kick out of these losers the same bunch that critized Reagan when he told the Soviets to tear down this wall. The same cowardly bunch that aid we could never beat the soviets, I tell you what when history looks back on this we will have defeated al queda on their tuff, put another democracy in the middle east (besides Isreal ,and Afghanistan). Unfortunatley there is evil in this world, and we are the only one's who solve problems, and not create them.
