US Vice President Dick Cheney has assured political allies that an early withdrawal of US forces from Iraq would not be allowed, despite efforts by Congress to impose a deadline on US combat operations there.
The comments late Saturday followed a historic vote Friday in the House of Representatives, which called for a pullout of US combat troops from Iraq by August 31, 2008 — regardless of whether Iraqi security forces are ready to take over from them.
President George W. Bush has vowed to veto the measure. But the threat has called into question the future of a 124-billion-dollar emergency funding bill, to which it is attached.
Lacking line-item veto power, Bush can reject bills only in their entirety.

When you get there go down to this little tidbit. Now here is a man with an All Seeing Eye. I wonder who he was referring to when he mentioned “financial gain” ( like if I didn’t know).

The angry debate added a new wrinkle Sunday, when a leading US foreign policy expert, former national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, delivered a stinging rebuke to the whole concept of the war on terror, arguing it was promoting “a culture of fear” that was being exploited for political and financial gain.
In the meanwhile:

Cheney for his part used his appearance before the Republican Jewish Coalition in Manalaplan, Florida, to reassure allies that the current political struggle will not result in a precipitous US withdrawal from Iraq.

Which allies was he referring to? Does the term “Knights Templar” come to anybody’s mind?
Just a little further down:

He (Cheney) did not explain what steps the administration could take if the supplemental bill dies in partisan bickering. But he expressed confidence in the final outcome, stating “We will complete the mission, and we will prevail.”

OK here is an idea! Maybe Bush can ask Cheney to ask his friends in Manalapan, Florida for the 124-billion-dollars, thereby making an end run around Congress, to hell with the veto, extending the war even longer, and instead of calling it “ The War on Terror “ they can change the name to Crusade 2007!
Come on people! Congress has got them by “ The Family Jewels “ its just a matter of squeezing a little more! Maybe now is the time to bring Jane Fonda out of retirement, she knew how to rally the people and end a war!
