35,000 More

Thirty-five thousand more troops are being told to prepare for Iraq duty.

Cheney is making an unannounced visit to Iraq, because the quagmire we've created is too dangerous to visit unannounced (Que wingnut view: the troop increase is necessitated by the dangerous conditions. When Iraq becomes yet again "more dangerous," the solution will of course be sending more troops. This is exactly how the "fight them over there" strategy is supposed to play out. Things are working beautifully.)

Even the GOP understands that escalation isn't working. It's doubtful it ever helped.

People hate this president, his war, and his veto.
