[/url]

A front page article in Sunday's Washington Post reveals that even Pentagon officials are "concerned" about President Bush's planned escalation - or "surge" - and that many critics are calling it "more of the same."

watched the debate between dick durbin and lindsey grahm on meet the press yesterday morning.

sounds like durbin and the rest of the dems are going to hold the bushicons feet to the fire this week. russert showed a poll showin that only 12 out of 49 repug senators agree with the bushicon escalation, the rest agree with the majority of the dems.

that frickin lieberman though is siding with the wrong side again. knida goes back on his campaign sctick of saying that the majority of the time he'd still stick with his former party.

could be an interesting week. i think the gloves are about to come off.

can't happen fast enough for me.

Who was the last jew they bought to betray his leader? Was Lieberman going to get his 30 shekels too?

Chances are good he has been bought and sold already while he was a republican in Democrats clothing.

He's so untrustworthy he'd do it for aipac- I mean nothing.

First U.S. troops in Baghdad for new plan

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - The first additional American troops who will take part in a major new security plan in Baghdad have arrived in the Iraqi capital, the U.S. commander in Iraq, General George Casey, said on Monday.

"The initial elements of the first group are here," he told a news conference. He declined to give more details or say when operations would start but he said a report that 4,000 of the planned 17,500 extra troops had arrived was "real high."

Asked about reports of frustration among U.S. officials with Iraqi counterparts over the planning of an operation to be led by the Iraqi government with U.S. help, Casey said: "Transitions generate friction. And we are in a period of transition."

But he said U.S. and Iraqi officials were working hard to ensure a workable command structure that would allow Iraqi control while maintaining the security and effectiveness of U.S. troops.

"We are working out understandings at every level to ensure there are no misunderstandings," Casey said.

If this was the stand the administration took on 'two-front' war inside Iraq, why is it now willing to have a two-front war including other countries?
