Bruce Lunsford on War & Peace

Democratic Senate challenger


Must concentrate on defeating Al Qaeda and the Taliban

McConnell has repeatedly voted to write blank checks in support of the Bush administration's failed policies in Iraq, with no strings attached and no accountability. He voted against withdrawing our troops eight times in 2007 and has allowed the American taxpayer to foot the enormous bill for the war, which has so far cost more than $525 billion. The war has drained $1.3 trillion from our domestic economy, or roughly $16,500 per family of four. I support a different approach. As the bipartisan Iraq Study Group recommended, we must give the Iraqi government the very clear message that maintaining law and order is its responsibility and help the government work toward this goal as we carefully and responsibly redeploy our troops to protect ourselves from direct threats to our country. We have lost focus on the enemy who attacked us on 9/11. We must concentrate on defeating Al Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and secure nuclear stockpiles and prevent the proliferation of nuclear weapons.
