    I hate to say this, I mean I really hate to say this. I've been reading all the stories from all sorts of political angles. Next week President Bush is going to address the nation about what will transpire in Iraq in the coming months. The title deals with the politics from the right/left memes.

    If what I'm reading today is correct, that perhaps 8-12k more troops are going to be sent, he's wrong. I've no background in warfare, much less strategy or execution, but enough commonsense to recognize that 149k troops are not much different than 140k when all hell is breaking loose.

    It seems to me they can either send 40-50k more, with the intention of 'forcing' peace or they can stay where they are, stopping the 'reconstruction' and working on 'forcing peace.'

    Here's an idea.

    Since things have gotten worse since day one of the occupation, perhaps, lets, I dunno, STOP OCCUPYING Iraq.
