Senate Fails to Pass Measure to End Iraq War
MyFox Detroit, MI - 57 minutes ago
"Five years of war, the president's current approach in Iraq is not working. The country is closer to chaos than stability. US troops are policing a civil ...
In the Senate, after weeks of skirmishing, Republicans easily turned back Democratic legislation requiring a troop withdrawal to begin within 120 days. The measure set no fixed deadline for completion of the redeployment, but set a goal of March 31, 2008. The vote was 50-48 against the measure, 12 short of the 60 needed for passage.

SENATE DEBATE: THE REAL REASON WE ARE AT WAR!
First, I'd like to congratulate Kellogg Brown & Root (KBR) and the Bechtel
Corporation, which are the construction companies most likely to benefit
from the reconstruction of Iraq. Contracts in the region of $1 billion
should soon coming your way, chaps. Well done! And what with the US
dropping 15,000 precision-guided munitions, 7,500 unguided bombs and 750
cruise missiles on Iraq so far and with more to come, there's going to be
a lot of reconstruction. It looks like it could be a bonanza year.

SADDAM TURNS HIS BACK ON GREENBACKS
Europe's dream of promoting the euro as a competitor
to the U.S. dollar may get a boost from SADDAM HUSSEIN.
Iraq says that from now on, it wants payments for its
oil in euros, despite the fact that the battered
European currency unit, which use to be worth quite
a bit more than $1, has dropped to about 82 cents.
Iraq says it will no longer accept dollars for oil
because it does not want to deal "in currency of the
The switch to euros would cost the U.N. a small
fortune in accounting paperwork changes. It would also
reduce the interest earnings and reparations payments
that Iraq is making for damage it caused during the Gulf War,
a shortfall the Iraqis would have to make up.
The move hurts Iraq, the U.N. and the countries receiving
reparations. So why is Saddam doing it? Diplomatic
sources say switching to the euro will favor European
suppliers over U.S. ones in competing for Iraqi contracts,
and the p.r. boost that Baghdad would probably get in
Europe would be another plus.

The 89-9 vote paved the way for consideration of the Democratic legislation, which would start troop withdrawals
within four months and calls for - but does not require - the complete removal of combat troops by the end of
March 2008. The vote came after many Republicans abandoned the tactic they had used earlier this year to
twice prevent the Senate from considering legislation aimed at forcing an end to the war.
