41. Reid and Ron Emmanuel are part of this capitulation
The larger issue is that most Dems did, in fact, vote for this war (giving Chucklenuts the power to wage war for no apparent reason). Why did they do this? Find that out and you will find out the reason that they are still funding the damned thing. My guess is that the oil corporations want this war and no "will of the people" is going to stop them. Yes, the Dems aren't listening to the people, but neither is Bush. In fact, Bush isn't even listening to the slippery friends of his Daddy who are telling him to get the hell out. Everyone is ignoring the obvious: that the war was morally and strategically wrong and has destroyed the economic health and worldwide reputation of the USA. The only interest this war now serves is to the oil companies (primarily) and the war profiteers (like Haliburton) secondarily. But these companies have more clout than all of the American populace put together and can keep this war going (and their toadies in office) for as long as they want the war to last, especially with the support of a complicit and financially connected media.
