Defeating America’s al-Qaeda


Anti-war groups retreat

After a series of legislative defeats in 2007 that saw the year end with more U.S. troops in Iraq than when it began, a coalition of anti-war groups is backing away from its multimillion-dollar drive to cut funding for the war and force Congress to pass timelines for bringing U.S. troops home.
In recognition of hard political reality, the groups instead will lower their sights and push for legislation to prevent President Bush from entering into a long-term agreement with the Iraqi government that could keep significant numbers of troops in Iraq for years to come.

The defeatists are on the run!!! This is proof that the “anti-war majority” isn’t really the majority they claim to be.

Of course, it could be another example of trading space for time. Theory being that these groups will ride out the rest of Bush’s term, and pin their hopes for ending the war on some random democratic candidate-although they’ve all said that we’re going to have to keep troops in Iraq for a while.

Let’s hope that those in Congress who use these anti-war groups to front their message of surrender get the one those same groups sent to them: we can’t win. And let’s hope that those of us who want to see this country achieve success and victory take this time not to rest, but to push even harder towards those goals.
