Democrats Cave -OR- Spinelessness on Parade

The Democratic majority in the United States Congress has surrendered their policy-making and funding power and become enablers to the Perpetrator-in chief. (Truthdig, Huffington Post) They now will fund the occupation of Iraq by the invading forces with no exit strategy or withdrawal date. This makes any delaying they have done up to now a waste of time, validates the bad-dog attitudes of Cheney-Bush, and makes potty-training much more difficult. No wonder the Democrats have so quickly approached and actually exceeded Bush-Cheney-like low levels of public approval, and they didn't need six years or even one year to do it. (Gallup, AP/Ipsos)

Maybe some people need to be reminded that the U. N. mandate that granted some international cover to the U.S. invasion and occupation expires soon. This seems to be a little-known fact not even discussed in the Iraq debate! You need to search google news for Chinese news sources to find mention of this fact.

The UN Security Council decided in November 2006 to extend the mandate of the international forces in Iraq to Dec. 31, 2007.
The Democrats in Congress who seek to fund and support the U.S. occupation should not just be removed from office, but ought to be brought before the World Court in the Hague, tried as war criminals, and imprisoned for long terms.
