House rejects Dems' strategic redeployment
...When will the Democrats admit they have been wrong about the war in Iraq all along? They know nothing of the use of force nor do they comprehend how effective the US has been in Iraq and Afghanistan. At the same time they praise the troops they call them failures in their mission. They do not think the removal of a genociadal despot is an accomplishment.
In a 256-153 vote that mirrored the position taken by the Senate earlier, the GOP-led House approved a nonbinding resolution that praises U.S. troops, labels the Iraq war part of the larger global fight against terrorism and says an "arbitrary date for the withdrawal or redeployment" of troops is not in the national interest.
"Retreat is not an option in Iraq," declared House Majority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio. "Achieving victory is our only option ... We have no choice but to confront these terrorists, win the war on terror and spread freedom and democracy around the world."
