GOP: If You Got 'Em, Smoke 'Em.

Late last night, Senate Republicans blocked a proposal to require more time between combat tours for U.S. troops.
"To stop the majority of this body from acting shows yet again that most of my Republican colleagues are much more concerned about protecting their president than protecting our troops," [Sen. Harry Reid] said.
Currently, American soldiers are deployed to Iraq for 15 months and return to the US for 12 months, which includes time away from their homes training for their return to Iraq.
