When the surge doesn't work, what does the Bush Administration do? Surge some more!
New orders awaiting the signature of Defense Secretary Robert Gates will put 12,000 National Guard troops on alert to prepare to deploy to Iraq, the report said.
I think we've reached Benjamin Franklin's definition of instanity.
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
Can we wait 21 more months? Back to the AP:
More than four years into the U.S.-led war in Iraq, the U.S. military shows increasing signs of strain.
On Monday, the Pentagon said it would send another 9,000 U.S. troops to Iraq, with about half of them returning to combat ahead of schedule.
Two of the affected Army units, totaling about 4,500 troops, will return to combat short of their promised year at home, reflecting the strain placed on U.S. forces by operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
What would happen if we really need the Army for something else?
