NH Resolution: It's Been Four and We Don't Want More

March 19, 2007

New Hampshire is doing what 20 other states are doing - taking a hard look at the costs Iraq war in terms of lives, and money. There's a hearing today, on the fourth anniversary of the war, on a resolution that urges support for U.S. troops, and at the same time, opposes President Bush's plan to send 20,000 more troops to Iraq. Marine Joe Turcotte served in Iraq in 2003.

"We don't agree with this troop surge. We support our troops, and we would like them home. And we urge the president to talk with other countries around there so we can expedite the process."

New Hampshire House Republican Leader Michael Whalley calls the resolution "politically motivated." The resolution closely mirrors the one already approved by Congress.

Resolution co-sponsor Representative Jim Splaine belives dwelling on the war doesn't solve the big-picture issues for that area of the country, and for U.S. security.

"It seems as if we've gotten away from the desire to bring diplomacy to the Middle East. And it also seems we've been focusing on the war in Iraq instead of the war on terrorism."

There's a hearing today on HR 10, 10:00 a.m., Representatives Hall, State House.
