On Monday (2007-10-01) the US Senate authorized another $150 billion for the occupation of Iraq. This money is authorized, not guaranteed, to be used to further fund war. But anything short of funding an immediate withdrawal should offend progressives. Why don’t progressives see how fraudulent the Democrats are by design? Their behavior is no accident, not a result of not having enough votes, these are their choices, the specific result of dialing for the same dollars as their counterparts the Republicans.
