Tomorrow (Feb. 4, 2007) there is expected debate within the Senate, concerning President Bush's 21,500 troop surge in Iraq. The Democrat majority is planning on debating a resolution that would denounce this troop surge, and give alternatives. These alternatives are not what our commanders in the field would endorse. Surprisingly Republican Senator John McCain has publicly denounced this resolution and sponsored a countering resolution. This countering resolution is also sponsored by Independent Democrat Senator Joe Lieberman. This resolution calls on Congress to give the troops are commanders request; this would endorse The Presidents troop surge plan. Whatever the outcome; the Senate floor will be closely watched over the next week.
