Conservative blogger Gary Gross (Let Freedom Ring Blog and California Conservative Blog) writes:
"I'm tired of hearing the Democrats yapping about the President's failed policies. I'm tired of hearing them say that we can't win in Iraq, that it's time to start logistical plans to pull the troops out of Iraq. Most of all, I'm tired of hearing ... [Chuck] Hagel, Susan Collins, Gordon Smith and Olympia Snowe intending to vote for the Hagel non-binding resolution that the Senate Foreign Relations Committee passed this week. It's time for Republicans to draft a real resolution that sides with the military and the American people...."
Gross goes on to propose a possible text of a pro-victory resolution that he believes ought to be introduced in the Senate (some excerpts below). For the rest of the article, see http://www.letfreedomringblog.com/2007/01/26/the-only-resolution-worth-debating/
"Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
"Whereas we resolve to follow those immortal words, we hereby state that:
"(a) We will commit our military to defeating the terrorists wherever they are;
"(b) We will endure any hardships so that our homeland will be free of future terrorist attacks;
"(c) We will support our friends, the great Iraqi patriots, in their fight for true liberty;
"(d) We will oppose the Iraqi patriots' enemies, including Iran's Revolutionary Guards, who are supplying the Iraqi Shiite militias with IEDs and training;
"(e) We will do everything in our power to further a partnership between the Iraqi government so we can add a valuable ally in this war against the jihadists.
"Therefore, we recommit this day to winning the global war on terrorism in every theater in the world using the military might of the United States, the righteousness of our diplomacy with freedom-loving nations and every other asset at the United States' avail."Posted by BerenForCongress at January 28, 2007 07:28 PM | Email This
