Democrats Micromanaging the War

The Democrats continue to delay in delivering the money that Bush has requested for military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. While the intentions behind this action are perhaps commendable — to force Bush to withdraw troops from the region — I don’t believe this is a good way to go about it. In fact, it seems like a very dangerous way to go about it.

Withholding funds from our troops does nothing but make their job harder. The civilian support structure around our soldiers will begin to evaporate for lack of funding and necessary “extras”, like IED-resistant armor on our Humvees become too expensive. This will increase casualties, which will make Bush look bad, and increase support for the Democratic agenda. Boo.
