The Counter Petition

Elisa and Gary over at Boxer Watch, the site with the fairly easy job of deconstructing any Sen. Mensa comment. And now, she is circulating a petition with about 35,000 signatures on it. The petition says in pertinent part:

It is time for President Bush to send a clear message that we do not intend to
remain in Iraq indefinitely or maintain permanent bases there. That doesn't mean
we should set an exact date for withdrawal. But it does mean we need a general
timeframe to complete the mission.

Translation: "Set an artificial timetable." It continues with the usual tripe about leveling with the American people, etc., which means falsely stating that Iraq is a failure, a quagmire, and another Vietnam to please the Democrats, because any American military intervention lasting longer than 2 days is a disaster (because on the 3rd day of the Iraq invasion, the MSM called it a quagmire, as the assault was halted for a few hours to let supply vehicles catch up to the battle vehicles..we were actually going too fast!).

They have a petition which gets the Iraq War and the greater war on terror right. Not that the president needs persuading here, but that he needs to hear from those of us who, while not 100% pleased with everything going on, are still pleased that he is keeping the pressure on the bad guys, and that he is rooting out terror in Iraq.

Because the only way Iraq becomes another Vietnam is if we leave.

Peter, Thanks for letting people know about our petition, which Elisa & I think is of vital importance.

Sen. Boxer's incoherent rantings notwithstanding, the American people should get behind our President's policy of staying the course so that we don't damage our credibility & that we don't leave too soon just because Sen. Boxer thinks it's important to cut & run.
