Congressional re-authorization for Iraq war after TWO YEARS voted down!

So, if you thought this was going to be another "mini-war", think again! Why would our
spineless congress vote down an amendment calling for congressional re-authorization for
this war after TWO YEARS! be voted down, unless the plan is for this war to go on, and
on, and on. Oh yeah, they'll be bringing back the draft, that's for sure!
"......Earlier, by a 66-to-31 vote, the Senate rejected an amendment by Robert Byrd, D-W.Va., the Senate's most outspoken opponent of the war resolution, that would have ended authorization for Bush to use force against Iraq after two years."

I'll try to find a way to help out though.
