Madame Speaker Pelosi was all smiles when said the House “had voted to bring an end to the War in Iraq”. Did Al Qaeda in Iraq vote on that? Did Al Sadr and his Mahdi army vote on that? Did the Baathist hold-outs vote on that? Did Iran vote on that? Did Syria vote on that? Did Saudi Arabia vote on that? Did Yemen vote on that? Did all the Imams inciting Jihad across the world vote on that? Even someone as incredibly short-sighted and pig-ignorant as Pelosi would have to agree that nobody on the enemy side has yet voted to end the war, let alone stop killing Coalition troops and Iraqi civilians.

I’m sure Pelosi’s vote to surrender will be welcomed by all of the above. The Iraqi people had no say but will suffer the consequences. Just like the millions of dead Vietnamese and Cambodians.
