Using images of children in combat camouflage, a coalition of US anti-war groups is airing about $500,000 in ads against Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell and three other senators from his party facing re-election next year, urging them to "bring our troops home." The ads come as official Washington turns its attention to a series of assessments on progress in Iraq that will culminate with a report next week from Gen. David Petraeus, the US military commander in Iraq. Sponsored by Americans Against Escalation in Iraq, the ads will also target Republican Sens. Norm Coleman, Susan Collins and Pete Domenici. The ads are scheduled to run for 10 days and will appear frequently on broadcast stations in the four senators' home states and nationally on cable. The ads depict children in fatigues in a training camp as an announcer says: "How long will Republican senators keep us stuck in Iraq? Should we start training our children now?"
