Stitch for Senate Helmet #19:
Knitted for Senator Harry Reid
We must set a date to begin withdrawing troops. The so-called government of Iraq has had its, "breathing space", and has made no discernable progress at reconciliation. Unfortunately, they will fight their civil war. How many more brave American lives are we willing to sacrifice in the face of this inevitability? How much more of this country's future are we expected to mortgage, only to further enrich the military industrial complex? This war has destabilized the entire middle-eastern region. We, as a country, must invest in our own national security by becoming energy independent.
