Robert KKK Byrd (who as grand wizard was supported by Chris Dodd) begins the call for the next democrat french strategy.

A SENIOR US senator today called for the United States to withdraw from Iraq in the wake of a recent surge in violence and mounting military casualties there.

"The harsh reality is this: one year after the fall of Baghdad, the United States should not be casting about for a formula to bring additional US troops to Iraq," said West Virginia Democrat senator Robert Byrd on the floor of the US Senate.

"The United States should instead be working toward an exit strategy."

Byrd made his comments as US troops battled uprisings in Sunni and Shi'ite sections of Iraq - military operations deemed by many experts to be the riskiest since the fall of Baghdad.

In one of the most recent attacks, US forces overnight bombed a mosque compound in the Iraq city of Fallujah after US troops had been targeted by gunfire coming from the building.

Byrd laid blame for the recent US troop casualties resulting from the spiralling violence at the doorstep of US President George W Bush.

"The President sent these men and women into Iraq, and it is his responsibility to develop a strategy to extricate them from that troubled country, before their losses become intolerable," he said.

"America needs a road map out of Iraq."

Who exactly would it be that Byrd is wishing to "appease"?
