The House plans to debate a resolution that specifically protests Bush's decision to send more than 20,000 additional troops to Iraq. The resolution is very concise (58 words) and focuses just on GW's escalation plan, stating continued support for "members of the United States Armed Forces who are serving or who have served bravely and honorably in Iraq."

However, a Republican letter has circulated with the message being, "This debate should not be about the surge or its details....If we let Democrats force us into a debate on the surge or the current situation in Iraq, then we lose."

Right-wing Republicans realize they can't stick to the facts or reality concerning this resolution, so instead they must expand the scope to the global threat of radical Islam in hopes of spreading more fear. As has been the case for some time, fear-mongering is just about all they have left.
