Supportin' The Troops: Democrats Kill Anti-IED Funding

Perhaps this will get the troop death rate up to a level the Democrats are happier with.

Were out of (funding) new stuff now; were going to have trouble sustaining current contracts after the first of December, Meigs said...

What I cant fund today will not go into the field next summer or next fall, Meigs said. Itll be delayed by the amount of time we wait for funding...

In Afghanistan, Meigs said, the Taliban are making a full-fledged effort to get back into the game. IED attacks are up, and the number of effective attacks is up as well, he said. The attacks are more lethal, he explained, because soldiers conduct more dismounted patrols in Afghanistan. A suicide bomber with a vest is more lethal in Afghanistan. Its easier to get closer to the troops, he said.

I wonder what the trade-off is. Every dead troop equals 1% of a Senate pick-up?

If these bastards think they've been "Swift Boated," let me tell you, they've not seen fury like they'll see if IED deaths tick upwards.
