Tribute to the Military

Compliments of Orbusmax Northwest News - 'Around the world in 80k' one of my favorite news sources:

403 against immediate withdrawal, 3 for withdrawl, 6 indicated they were "present" whatever that means, and 22 not voting. Guess most did not want to go on record as wanting withdrawl. Here is the link to the vote:

Great round-up. I do not believe it was Powell, though. It would be too...um...unlike him. If anyone, maybe his lacky that's been speaking at democrat events? lol.
