Van Taylor Praises House Resolution Rejecting Artificial Timetable For Troop Withdrawal
WACO - Van Taylor, a businessman who served as a Captain in the U.S. Marine Corps and fought in the war to liberate Iraq, praised the U.S. House of Representatives for passing a resolution expressing commitment to "achieving victory in Iraq." The resolution, which passed 279-109, also stated setting "an artificial timetable for the withdrawal" of U.S. troops is "fundamentally inconsistent with achieving victory in Iraq."
"I commend the House of Representatives for passing a bipartisan resolution expressing our commitment as a nation to achieving victory in Iraq and rejecting artificial timetables for troop withdrawal. From my experience leading troops in combat, good battle plans require flexibility to achieve success," said Taylor.
"Politicians in Washington should not arbitrarily set timetables that hamstring commanders on the ground. Otherwise, we jeopardize the very progress we fought so hard to achieve. The House of Representatives has made the hard choice not to retreat and to secure America against terrorism."
