A First Step

"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. House of Representatives on Friday denounced President George W. Bush's Iraq troop buildup in a symbolic but politically potent challenge to his unpopular war strategy.

The Democratic-controlled House voted in favor of a resolution opposing the Republican president's decision to send another 21,500 troops to Iraq. The measure does not force Bush to act, but supporters hope to pressure him to reverse course and start bringing troops home."
