Every death in Iraq is a tragedy. Colorado took a big hit Friday when three soldiers from Fort Carson, including Joshua Hager from Broomfield
, were killed by an improvised explosive device (IED.)
Fort Carson has lost 189 soldiers in the Iraq War.
In Fort Collins, residents visited Sen. Ken Salazar's office
, hoping to persuade him to vote against funding an additional $93 million for the Iraq war.
Sen. Salazar is waffling once again
U.S. Sen. Ken Salazar, D-Denver, said he supports the concept of passing a binding resolution in Congress that would restrict military involvement in Iraq, but that such a plan could only succeed with bipartisan support.
The Democrats plan to introduce a resolution this week rescinding authorization for the Iraq War.
The proposal would repeal a 2002 Senate vote that authorized U.S. military involvement in Iraq and replace it with a more stringent plan that includes removing troops from combat by March 2008.
....[Salazar] ... emphasized that sponsors need to bring Republicans on board before introducing the measure.
Is there anything Salazar will agree to without Republican support? He wasn't elected to be a Republican water carrier. He was elected as a Democrat. I think it's about time he began acting like one. How many more Coloradans must lose their lives in Iraq before he puts politics aside when deciding how to vote?
