The entire blame rests with Bush. He is the one that decided to go to war, and he is the one who had supreme control over what the US military did in Iraq, what its objectives were, how it went about winning them, etc. The entire debacle will ultimately rest with Bush, not the congressmen who could see that we simply don't have the competence to stabilize iraq.

With their brave "nonbinding resolution" the dems have made clear their intention to give Iraq away and surrender to terror. An American defeat in Iraq has been inevitable,Bin Laden knew it from the start. The only question now is, How much of the aftermath can be blamed on Bush? Standby for that "resolution"

This whole issue was just petty politics. A non-binding resolution? what sort of crap is that?
Truth is, the majority of Dems voted for the war same as the Repugnicons, so to play a hard assed blame game, they would also have to admit that they too are responsible for the entire mess.
Non-binding? Makes one wonder just what we pay these bozos for
Disclaimer - we have a bunch of bozos running the UK as well so no replies about my Anti-american stance are required

War does not fix the problems of the world. Every military conflict has taught us this. The only good thing that came out of WWII is that we are too horrified to repeat what we did to Japan with the atomic bomb.

I think a full scale pull out won't happen in any circumstance. The US still has military bases in Suadi Arabia, Kuwati, Germany, south korea, south veitnam and Japan right ? ( I may be wrong , but you get the point)

That statement is rubbish!
Hitler wanted to rule half the world and Japan the other half. Japan was told to surrender or face destruction. Had Japan excepted there would have been no A-bomb, let alone two.
