Letter I just sent to my senators.
It's time to face reality.

Reality#1
The country of Iraq was formed by Great Britain with no respect to the differing tribes. The only thing that has ever held it together is an iron fist such as Saddam Husein.

Reality#2
We cannot continue the current troop levels indefinitely without a military draft. The ground troops are being stretched to the limits.

Reality#3
There is not going to be a military draft in the United States any time soon.

Reality#4
The problems on the ground in Iraq are not going to be solve by the U. S. military. They are going to be solved by the Iraqis.

Please face reality and vote for the Reid Levin amendment.

1. K & R
Short and to the point. Even Republican Senators should be able to understand it.

3. It's good, but Reality #1 suggests the country of Iraq is not a "real"
country, and if it's not, Reality #4 makes no sense because there can't be "real" Iraqis if there's no "real" Iraq.

Anyhow, it's Bu$che's fault (Cheney's).
