Republican Voinovich joins call for U.S. troops to start coming home

WASHINGTON (AP) - Ohio Senator George Voinovich says the US should begin pulling troops out of Iraq and make greater use of diplomacy.

He becomes the second Republican lawmaker this week to declare President Bush's war strategy a failure.

Voinovich says the Iraqi people and their neighbors need to take more active roles but won't do so until they know the US is leaving.

His remarks come on the heels of similar comments yesterday from Indiana Senator Richard Lugar.

The two say they're still not ready to insist on a timetable for withdrawal. But both are making it clear their patience is gone.....
