So you agree with the Republicans and want the U.S. to "stay the course" in keeping U.S. troops in combat in Iraq? Consider this observation from Daily Kos:
"No matter how often Petraeus and other administration apolgists claim that violence is down, the fact remains that in 2006, an average of 1,380 Iraqis a month were killed, while in the first 8 months of 2007, that number has risen to 1,825 violent deaths a month."
You can count the bodies in the morgues in Iraq and conclude that violent deaths are up sharply over last year. It is a civil war between Muslim religious factions. The U.S. has no business having troops in Iraq. The sooner we bring the boys (and girls) home from Iraq, the better. A vote for the Republicans is a vote for continued mayhem and violence. Vote for the Democrats and let's Ditch Mitch and bring the troops home.
