25. Thanks to all DUers for trying. It is still at 40% yes
I think some local freepers are busy freeping it. Why do they want more American soldiers and innocent Iraqis to die? Why do freepers hate America???

One problem, though. Congressman Murtha did not call for an immediate withdrawal of troops. That was Hunter's resolution. The facts are being twisted.

38. The question is invalid. Congressman Murtha did not call for immediate
withdrawal. The survey/poll is republican spinning in action, i.e., murtha=immediate=cut-and-run=democrats.

The non-binding resolution submitted by republican hunter called for immediate withdrawal.


See text below - thanks to DUer Lex here: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...



The Hunter resolution:


RESOLUTION

Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that
the deployment of United States forces in Iraq be terminated immediately.

Resolved, That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that the deployment of United States forces
in Iraq be terminated immediately.

-------------------------

Murtha's resolution:

Whereas Congress and the American People have not been shown clear, measurable progress toward establishment of stable and improving security in Iraq or of a stable and improving economy in Iraq, both of which are essential to "promote the emergence of a democratic government";

Whereas additional stabilization in Iraq by U, S. military forces cannot be achieved without the deployment of hundreds of thousands of additional U S. troops, which in turn cannot be achieved without a military draft;

Whereas more than $277 billion has been appropriated by the United States Congress to prosecute U.S. military action in Iraq and Afghanistan;

Whereas, as of the drafting of this resolution, 2,079 U.S. troops have been killed in Operation Iraqi Freedom;

Whereas U.S. forces have become the target of the insurgency,

Whereas, according to recent polls, over 80% of the Iraqi people want U.S. forces out of Iraq;

Whereas polls also indicate that 45% of the Iraqi people feel that the attacks on U.S. forces are justified;

Whereas, due to the foregoing, Congress finds it evident that continuing U.S. military action in Iraq is not in the best interests of the United States of America, the people of Iraq, or the Persian Gulf Region, which were cited in Public Law 107-243 as justification for undertaking such action;

Therefore be it Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That:

Section 1. The deployment of United States forces in Iraq, by direction of Congress, is hereby terminated and the forces involved are to be redeployed at the earliest practicable date.

Section 2. A quick-reaction U.S. force and an over-the-horizon presence of U.S Marines shall be deployed in the region.

Section 3 The United States of America shall pursue security and stability in Iraq through diplomacy.


----------------------------

42. It's already getting blurry, isn't it.
And I'm sorry I voted in this poll. I voted before reading the question and I'm embarrassed. :blush: KCRA needs to be set straight.

44. I sent them an email - this poll is also identical to another being
posted here at DU.

They're muddying the waters and we're wading right on in.

*sigh*

Choice Votes Percentage of 3371 Votes

Yes -1551 46%
No - 1820 54%




But I will email them to let them know the House never considered a Murtha resolution and will send them what the House did vote on.

Tucker Carlson said last night that the House voted down Rep. Murtha's resolution also.

I think we need an email blitz to let them know what really happened.
