A Call to Action

I don't normally do the petition thing anymore but in this case I think it is extremely important that we send spineless senators a message. In Punditarian's post he talked about Petraeus' great answers that he gave on the hill. Here is something else he said while there:
"No matter how well-intentioned, a resolution being opposed to this new strategy is a vote of no confidence in you. No matter how well-intentioned, the enemy will see it as a weakened resolve."
As Flopping Aces points out we expect this appeasement from the Democrats but click on this link to see how to contact all the Republican senators "who want to send the message to the enemy that we give up."

Also, if you agree with this statement:
"If the United States Senate passes a resolution, non-binding or otherwise, that criticizes the commitment of additional troops to Iraq that General Petraeus has asked for and that the president has pledged, and if the Senate does so after the testimony of General Petraeus on January 23 that such a resolution will be an encouragement to the enemy, I will not contribute to any Republican senator who voted for the resolution. Further, if any Republican senator who votes for such a resolution is a candidate for re-election in 2008, I will not contribute to the National Republican Senatorial Committee unless the Chairman of that Committee, Senator Ensign, commits in writing that none of the funds of the NRSC will go to support the re-election of any senator supporting the non-binding resolution."
