Boxer on Iraq

Senator Boxer on Iraq

"How many more explosive devices are going to blow up in the faces of our troops before we start bringing them home?  How many more Iraqis are going to die, women and children?  How many more faces are we going to look at on the front page before we get the guts to do the right thing?  

"The President doesn't listen.  He didn't listen after the election…he said he had a new strategy.  What was it?  The surge.  The surge is not a new strategy; it's a military tactic, and it isn't working."

— Senator Boxer, speaking in debate on the Defense Authorization Bill.

Lovely. [Sigh] I don't know about you, but I'm growing weary of the almost an election year rhetoric. I'm all for cutting the funding and bringing the troops home, but it's also time for the government to suit up, shut up and show up.  It's time to hang up Gunslinger Bush's sixguns and show him the road outta Dodge. It's time to impeach.
