    It's becoming more and more obvious that Chimpy is going to escalate in Iraq. He will be telling us that he will be extending to tours of troops already there and rotating troops over early. Never mind that the JCS is opposed to this. Never mind that Generals Casey and Abizaid are opposed to this. Never mind that the American people on 11/7/06 repudiated his policies in Iraq. Of course, since they are opposed to Chimpy's decisions in this matter, both Abizaid and Casey are being relieved of their commands and replaced.

    Yes, Chimpy is the decider and he listens to the voices...in his head. Reality seems to have no part in his decision making process

    Abizaid has been there three years - a typical general officer assignment length. Casey is getting promoted to JCS.

    Hey Jeff, you're nearly cutting off Bully's real point of changing the lede from 'surge' to 'escalation', which is the new power's way of harking back, once again to Vietnam...:rolleyes:
