Democrats Cave II
As I pre-emptively reported back in January, Democrats Caved to Bush in funding the occupation of Iraq without any deadlines or benchmarks for troop withdrawl. Of course we can expect an increase in posturing and the rhetoric of opposition as the selection draws near but expect nothing more. One doesn't need a crystal ball to figure this out, it just takes an understanding of class dynamics and the interests at stake.
Only a major change in leadership will end this bloody debacle and I don't see that coming from the Democrats. I would love to see them nominate Kuncinch but he is an anathma to them. We may need an independent candidate to reperesent a sane and honest alternative.
