Senator John Warner stated on the senate floor Monday, Feburary 4, 2007 that 323,000 Iraqui troops thus far have already been trained by the United States Army. And this being the case, is ample reason not to send more American troops, approximately 41,000, and a mere fractation of the 323,000 Iraqi troops ALREADY TRAINED, to serve and to possilbly die and most likely maimed, when the 323,000 Iraqui troops ALREADY TRAINED will not stand up and fight for themselves, for their family, and for their Country -- then we must ask ourselves, WHY SHOULD WE?

Now we can understand why the U.S Generals and some Republican Senators have publically disagreed with the President knowing the fact that 323,000 Iraqui troops have already been trained to do the job and therefore, no need to send more American soldiers to die.

Bush stated recently at a Democratic Summit that he welcomed debate, knowing full well that behind the scenes they were pressuring their Republicans not to debate and let the American people know the facts that 323,000 Iraqui troops are already trained. What else are they hiding? What else do they not want the American public to find out? Because the President and his cronies know that an informed public opinion is an enlightened public opinion, and that is dangerous to them -- for the American people to know the truth, to see the truth, the ugly truth, and Real reasons why we invaded and then occupied Iraq and why they want to continue to still occupy Iraq.

The Republican Senators who have stood up against the President's Surge and against their party are the real ones (besides the Democratic Party) who truly care for the soldiers knowing full well that there are enough Iraqui troops arleady trained to do the job and therefore no need to send more American troops to fight and possibly die.

And where is the missing Money (millions of money) already sent to Iraq? And why were our troops sent without the right equipment in the beginning of this mismanged so-called war? And why should we send more money? These questions and more should be debated because they are important questions and because we live in a democracy, not a Dictatorship, although it is beginning to look like one.

The American people must have a debate on these issues and we will. The awful fact is that Lies got us into this war and only the Truth will get us out.
