Pelosi blinks...

Nancy Pelosi will not deny funds to stop the reinforcements going to Iraq.

On the one hand, it is a relief to see that Iraq - as well as the troops - will not be stabbed in the back.

On the other hand, it is typical of the Democrats. They refuse to offer any solutions, just criticism. There's no sense of loyalty to the country from them, just a desire to get power - no matter the cost.

The thing is, she will take fire from the hard-core anti-war activists that want the surge stopped and who want to stab both the Iraqi people and the troops in the back. Not that I'mupset to see her deal with that sort of thing.

After all, as Speaker of the House, and with the Democrats in the majority, she has the responsibility to come up with alternatives.
