U.S. House to America's enemies: "We're weak. You win."


Why is this woman smiling? The photo was taken after a nonbinding resolution rejecting the President's plan to deploy more troops in Iraq passed the U.S. House 246-182.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced, "The passage of this legislation will signal a change in direction in Iraq that will end the fighting and bring our troops home."

Quick translation: Cut off funding. Force U.S. troops to "end the fighting" (give up). And bring the troops home.

And then what?

Message to Iraq: "Democracy in your country isn't worth dying for."

Message to America's enemies: "We're weak. You win."

So why is she smiling?

For making the world more secure?

Nope.

Politics.

UPDATE: Proposed bumpersticker: "Support the Troops: LET THEM WIN"
