Suggestion for Pelosi and Reid:
Don't allow Congress to take an August recess. While our troops are in Iraq, and because the Iraqi Parliament has the gall to take an August recess while our troops keeping dying...Let the Democratic party step up and say to the US Congress...as long as our troops are working in Iraq with little to no rest, under a failed policy that gives NO CHANCE of success...

If they don't get a break, we don't get a break from doing everything we possibly can to end this war and bring them home. What a statement it would make to know that while Dubya is in Crawford, and while the Iraqi Parliament are taking their vacations....the Democratic led Congress doesn't get a break until our troops get one. And, since nothing else is on the calendar for August, because of the recess, spend the whole month (which comes after Petraeus' report) doing nothing but working on get our troops home, and ending this war.

Just a suggestion.
