House Passes Resolution for VICTORY in Iraq:
Who Knew?

If I had not read this tidbit at Crush Liberalism I would never have known:
The day after the historic election of the first freely elected government in the Middle East, the House of Representatives passed House Resolution 612 which states in part:

Whereas the Iraqi election of December 15, 2005, the first to take place under the newly ratified Iraqi Constitution, represented a crucial success in the establishment of a democratic, constitutional order in Iraq; and Whereas Iraqis, who by the millions defied terrorist threats to vote, were protected by Iraqi security forces with the help of United States and Coalition forces: Now, therefore, be itResolved, That--

(1) the House of Representatives is committed to achieving victory in Iraq;

...4) the successful Iraqi election of December 15, 2005, required the presence of United States Armed Forces, United States-trained Iraqi forces, and Coalition forces;

(5) the continued presence of United States Armed Forces in Iraq will be required only until Iraqi forces can stand up so our forces can stand down, and no longer than is required for that purpose;

(6) setting an artificial timetable for the withdrawal of United States Armed Forces from Iraq, or immediately terminating their deployment in Iraq and redeploying them elsewhere in the region, is fundamentally inconsistent with achieving victory in Iraq;

...(8) the House of Representatives has unshakable confidence that, with the support of the American people and the Congress, United States Armed Forces, along with Iraqi and Coalition forces, shall achieve victory in Iraq.

59 Democrats joined all 220 Republicans voting YES for VICTORY!108 Defeaticrats could not even bring themselves to vote for VICTORY! Mark their names down.

Did any of my readers other than Jonathon at Crush Liberalism see this vote reported in the lamestream media? On the day the vote took place, it was total hysteria about how rotten it is that President Bush is using the very same authority that Presidents Carter, Reagan, Bush "41," and Clinton used to protect national security in times of relative peace
