    How can you force Bush to clearly define what "victory" is, or etc.  HE DOESN'T KNOW.  Why is this so hard to grasp, to understand, to accept.  He simply does not know.  

    Now, does he know that he doesn't know?  I can't answer that, but it seems to me that if the catastrophe that is Iraq is threatening the whole region, and our national security, to say nothing of our troops, Democrats ought to have the moral courage to say: Mr. President, you are endangering our country.  You are not thinking of what's best for America (or even for Iraq for that matter) but what's best for your legacy.  

    Therefore, we will provide funding for a total withdrawal of American troops, and for this purpose only.  No more money for contractors, for Haliburton, for useless trips by Rice, Cheney or presidential aspirants, or congressional committees.  We will rescind the Iraq War Resolution.  We will declare that it is illegal for you to send one single more soldier into harm's way in Iraq.

    Congress is not helpless or completely subservient to the executive.  There are actions that can be taken to end this occupation.  But I'm by no means sure the Democrats have spines sufficient to act.
