Two Questions: Who Won? & Who Makes the Decisions?

First Question: Now that both the House and Senate have voted to withdraw troops and surrender in Iraq, the question to ask is, who won the war? Apparently according to the Dems like Reid who say we lost then who won?

Second Question: Since when does Congress or the American people for that matter have any constitutional power to dictate how the Commander in Chief wages a voted on war once it has begun short of voting him out of office or cutting funds? According to Biden you would think the President is completely beholden to Congress's mood and the public opinion polls on how to conduct the war!

"I really, really, really hope the president understands just how damaging his vetoing this legislation will be, how far behind the American people he'll be and how far behind the Congress's mood he is," said Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Joseph R. Biden Jr. (D-Del.).

You make some great points. The more I have thought about this today the angrier I have gotten. My great senator Kit Bond wrote an awesome editorial that got published in the KC Star the other day. I think I am going to call his office and thank him for it and then make my views known on how I think Harry Reid is a traitor and should resign. I think I'll make a call to Reid as well. Its time the American people spoke up that understand what is at stake here.

The democrats believe that they have won the war. They hate Bush so much that they would prefer to align themselves with Islamic terrorists, who hate the USA, as opposed to being on the same side as President Bush.

They believe that the USA losing the war makes Bush look bad, and thus helps them in the polls...

That is just my opinion.

well, according to our President, we won the war four years ago today; "Mission accomplished" he said. Somebody better tell that to the 2000+ soldiers who have given their lives since then...

...I would agree the "Mission Accomplished" wasn't the greatest idea because it sent a message back home to uninformed Americans that the war was over. However, that wasn't the message. We did accomplish our mission of dethroning Sadaam and it was a cause for celebration, but we all knew that was only the first battle in a long war on terror.

You might also want to realize the soldiers we have lost have died proudly in a cause for freedom and a war they believe in. This was evidenced again by President Bush using a pen given to him by the father of a lost soldier to veto the Dems defeat bill, with a message of don't give in.
