Temporary Surge


Sen. John McCain in Baghdad told reporters that the U.S. needs 15,000 to 30,000 more troops in Iraq to control the sectarian violence. I favor this position. Call it a “temporary surge”.

However, the Joint Chiefs at the Pentagon seem to be lining up against this view. With all due respect, I don’t see how you get the job done without more troops, including taking al-Sadr out of play.
