...don't even ignore 'em.

I just wrote emails to my Senators, to make sure they keep the pressure on the Bush Administration to change direction in Iraq. Despite the smoke the President and his lieutenants--not to mention his generals--blow about how much progress they're making with the "just started" surge, they still act as if everybody's asking them to pull out of Iraq tomorrow or the next day. That's never been the case, and it's time we got the message through to Bush and Cheney that we're not buying that. We need to see a real change in direction, in the interest of our security and the health of our troops. You don't have to have top secret clearance to sense that we're in World War III (Pakistan, London, to name two current fronts outside of Iraq) and we're tied down in Iraq. Not that sending conventional brigades on classic invasions is going to work against this enemy. Republican, Democrat, or whatever, write your representatives today.
