Pelosi: Obama must make case for war buildup

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - It is up to President Barack Obama to convince wary Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives to support his escalation of the Afghanistan war, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Wednesday.

Pelosi also said many House Democrats "are eager to have a vote soon on Afghanistan," and may get it as early as next month on a resolution to end the conflict.

With Democrats divided and most Republicans backing the war, there seems no chance the resolution will be approved.


"War votes are votes of conscience," Pelosi told reporters on Capitol Hill.

Oh wow! They'll be getting the US military out of Afghanistan?

Congress is expected to approve funding for the troop increase, which the Pentagon has estimated would cost between $30 billion to $35 billion.

Hey, Democrats and Democratic voters, great job. Pat yourselves in the back.
