Durbin on the War

Support for the war in Iraq certainly seems to have waned here in the US. And Dick Durbin is one of many people to have voiced concern about the direction the war is taking. Recently, Durbin had this to say:

"Words of tribute are in order to honor the sacrifice of these brave men and women and their loved ones. But words are not enough. We owe them leadership and a clear strategy to bring our troops home with their mission truly accomplished." (article)

Durbin, stepping up to the plate and exercising the leadership abilities he spoke of, outlined his clear strategy to bring the troops home. Oh, wait, no. No, Durbin did NOT do that.

Dick Durbin is not a leader. He can find problems, but can't come up with solutions. Illinois deserves better.
