Kerry Calls for 20,000 G.I.'s to Return Home by Christmas
Kerry speaking at Georgetown University 10/26/05
He knows it is time to start bringing our soldiers home. He knows that this will help in the resolution of the Iraq situation. He stated:
"To undermine the insurgency, we must instead simultaneously pursue both a political settlement and the withdrawal of American combat forces linked to specific, responsible benchmarks," he said. "At the first benchmark, the completion of December elections, we can start the process of reducing our forces by 20,000 troops over the course of the holidays."Meanwhile, America has passed another milestone, 2,000 dead American soldiers in Iraq.

Meanwhile, President Bush can only say that there needs to be more sacrifices:
"Sacrifice is essential to winning war," he said, "and this war will require more sacrifice, more time, and more resolve."He added:
"Iraq has made incredible political progress, from tyranny to liberation to national elections to the ratification of a national constitution in the space of 21/2 years," Bush said to applause Tuesday as he spoke to wives of military officers at Bolling Air Force Base in Washington.This is Paul Fusco.
Watch Paul Fusco's Photo-Montage and weep.
These are the sacrifices that America is making.
It is time for new leadership in America!
