From NBC News:
In a guest column in Wednesday's Wall Street Journal President Bush addressed a range of issues. On Iraq he said he'll reveal his new strategy in the coming days.All the generals, the troops on the ground, all the experts, even Republicans like James Baker have said that escalation isn't going to help. But here we are, testing the limits of our military's capabilities and sending out many thousands of Americans into a lost cause.
Administration officials tell NBC News it will involve sending some 20,000 additional U.S. troops to Iraq.
For what? Truly, for what?
If escalation was a legitimate plan for victory, it would be one thing, but when escalation is nothing more than a 'political decision' it is an unimaginable horror.
