GOP Wants Other Members to Change The Subject Of Iraq To Something Else To Avoid Clash With Democrats

        Here's one for you if you have not seen it yet!

    Two Republican Reps. sent a "Dear Colleague" letter to the rest of the GOP group in an effort to get the Republicans to change their tactics on Iraq and the war when it comes to them being confronted by the Democrats.

    Letter (PDF)

We are writing to urge you not to debate the Democratic Iraq resolution on their terms, but rather on ours.  

Democrats want to force us to focus on defending the surge, making the case that it will work and explaining why the President's new Iraq policy is different from prior efforts and therefore justified.

We urge you to instead broaden the debate to the threat posed to Americans, the world, and all "unbelievers" by radical Islamists. We would further urge you to join us in educating the American people about the views of radical Islamists and the consequences of not defeating radical Islam in Iraq.

The debate should not be about the surge or its details. This debate should not even be about the Iraq war to date, mistakes that have been made, or whether we can, or cannot, win militarily. If we let the Democrats force us into a debate on the surge or the current situation in Iraq, we lose.

    So basically the GOP is telling their members that if the debate comes to an up or down vote, Republicans lose.

    If there is a straight up vote in the resolution, Republicans lose. They have to find something else to bring up other than Iraq or they will get fucked!

    Practically everyone in the United States opposes the escalation, including a few Republicans.

    What those who will try to change the subject to something else other than Iraq/Iran do not realize.

    There is nothing else!
