While the Democratic majority in Congress seems to treat Iraq as a symbol, real people's lives are on the line.
Air Force Major C. L. Lucas is a Louisiana native, and was not pleased with the vote of Senator Mary Landrieu in support of the Democrats' surrender initiative. Recently transferred out of state and no longer constituent, he nevertheless wrote to her and shared with us the content of his letter. An excerpt:
... should I be killed in Iraq when I deploy there next fall, I would like to cordially invite you to my funeral so you can meet my widow and my children and tell them personally that you voted to impede military success in Iraq and that I have died for nothing.
