Knollenberg is Not Just Wrong, Knollenberg is WAY WRONG on Iraq

Yesterday, the House attempted to pass a bill that would have required troop withdrawals within 9 months. Joe Knollenberg voted NO on that bill.

But the Iraqi Parliament signed a bill that would require a similar timeframe for withdrawal of US troops as well as a freeze on current troop levels!!!

According to the Washington Post:

A majority of members of Iraq's parliament have signed a draft bill that would require a timetable for the withdrawal of U.S. soldiers from Iraq and freeze current troop levels. The development was a sign of a growing division between Iraq's legislators and prime minister that mirrors the widening gulf between the Bush
administration and its critics in Congress.

The draft bill proposes a timeline for a gradual departure, much like what some U.S. Democratic lawmakers have demanded, and would require the Iraqi government to secure parliament's approval before any further extensions of the U.N. mandate for foreign troops in Iraq, which expires at the end of 2007.
Knollenberg wants to keep US troops in Iraq even though the Iraqi government doesn't want the US troops there!!!!

And, as noted by Joe's colleague, the Republican Congressman Wayne Gilchrest,

The Sunnis don't want Al Qaeda there and the Shiites don't want them there. Sending the message that we're going to leave prods the Sunnis to stop fighting
with the Shiites.

Once again, Joe is on the wrong side of an issue. This time it just happens to be the biggest issue facing the country.

Joe Knollenberg is WRONG on IRAQ and

WRONG for Oakland County.

Oops -- I guess it was on purpose -- six posts to get your point across, eh?

I have no idea how that happened.

Though I guess it does get the point across -- when Knollenberg is wrong, he is really, really, really, really, really, really, wrong. LOL.

The Internets must have had the hiccups, but when I saw six of that post, I thought maybe you were just trying to really get your point across!
