The Republican motto for this war, "Thieves expoit chaos to steal" that is what this war is all about. Looks like the Republicans are going to end the war with Iraq sooner than the Democrats ever would if they are not careful.

Today the House plans on passing the next round of funding for the Republican Iraq War, attached to this bill is a very reasonable time table for ending the war. The Republicans are up in arms about this timetable, showing just how disconnected from the American people they are, they are using some great buzz words like “Micromanage” and “Tying the Hands of the President” and you know what, they are right. Simply put the war must be “Micromanaged” because the last 5 years under the Republicans, the war was not managed at all, so when something goes 5 years with no management, a little micro-management is in order. They are also right about “Tying the hands of the President” for almost the same reason, no one has done any oversight for the last 6 years, he need his hands tied.

So the demise of the War in Iraq may be a Republican event, in fact Bush himself may do it. Scenario one, the Republicans have said that if the bill moves to the floor of the Senate with the timetable intact, they will filibuster the bill, killing it, and by doing so, the Republicans will say to the world, “We will not fund the Troops, we will not fund the War”, and the war will be over. Scenario two is even more fun, the bill makes it thought the process and is sent to the White House, the “President” will have to make a choose, fund the war, or don’t. The Republicans can, and from what it sounds like, will defund the war, in short cutting of their own nose, to spite their own faces.

Now for this plan to work the Democrats need to stick to the mandate given to them by the people and fight to keep the timetables intact. They also need to pass the war funding and be done with it. Bush and the Republican have one chance to get it done, and if they filibuster it or veto it, the war is over because the bill will not return to the floor of either chamber. The bill dies, the money for Iraq dries up, the Democrats make it clear that they tried but the Republicans were the ones to kill this bill, to use one of their own dirty tricks, “They were for the funding before they were against it”

The Republicans are playing chicken with the Democrats, and if they stay strong, the RIGHT decision for Iraq will be made, the War will End, and the Republican will have no one but themselves to blame.
