This is a good little fair and balanced article in Fox News about Mitch McConnell talking up the escalation of the Iraq war, what they don't tell you is a poll conducted in Kentucky where a 52% majority was "against" the escalation of the Iraq war. The state has been slowly building against the escalation of the war and polls taken are showing that trend, but of course polls don't matter, just spend till we go bust on an ill gotten agenda that has basically turned into the "mess of the century."McConnell is up for re-election in 2008 which is not till next year, if I am to assume this correctly if he were up for it this year, he would not be as quick to support this failing agenda. Just lately there is heated up press talk of Tony Blair pulling out a lot of the troops by the end of this year, which seems like a good move on his part due to the violence and ongoing civil war there.

Cheney's take on all this is to press on blindly, and a statement he made kind of did not sit right with me, he wants to complete the mission right, whatever that means, and another thing he stated was he wanted the troops to "come home with honor." So if the troops come home now it would not be with honor? Saddam has been done away with and the troops have done everything that has been asked of them, I think we are dishonoring them by asking them to stay in a country with a civil war going on with no clear agenda by us of what the outcome should be, or for that matter what victory is actually to mean. Let me clarify that not "by us" but by our pompous politicians, whose only answer to generals in the field who don't agree with them, to dismiss these and replace them with "yes men."

    Hey Floyd... McConnell is just a Dr Frist (Shiavo is looking at me) hitman replacement. They give him a fresh supply of koolaid and a briefing every morning now and he is a happy camper...

    You got him pegged right my friend, the feelings for this madness war is translating everywhere, like I said if Mitch was up for re-election this year he would jump on the band wagon the other way. He is basically a Frist clone, the governor of this state is in political hot water now and Mitch avoids him like he has a bad case of flu.

    The polls clearly suggest we should be out of Iraq. When did our government stop listening to the people?

    Hello octavian, yep looks like they threw out the for the people and by the people clause. You know on the blogs and web they have voiced their opinions in these forums as well as in the polls, only to fall on deaf ears.
