Iraq: A Vote for the Record

House Democrats to vote on anti-war bill

WASHINGTON - House Democratic leaders circulated a nonbinding resolution Monday saying that Congress "disapproves of the decision of President George W. Bush President George W. Bush ... to deploy more than 20,000 additional United States combat troops to Iraq." Read more here.

This story got me wondering if it woud be a good idea for our national leaders to formally affirm or disaffirm their support for the Iraq war escalation. Despite what anyone thinks about the escalation is seems that our leaders should at least tell us formally where they are on it.

A side-bar on this one is the misperception that the number of escalation troops is around 20,000 troops ... the number will be at least twice that when you consider that additional support troops will be needed to support combat troops.
