Iraq Troop Buildup Idea Worries Generals - NEWS - Comcast.net:
"Iraq Troop Buildup Idea Worries Generals
By ROBERT BURNS, AP Military Writer
WASHINGTON - A White House laboring to find a new approach in Iraq said Tuesday it is considering sending more U.S. troops, an option that worries top generals because of its questionable payoff and potential backlash. President Bush said he is ready to boost the overall size of an American military overstretched by its efforts against worldwide terrorism."
Uh, wasn't it part of Rumsfeld's grand plan to scale back the military and turn it into a lean, mean green fighting machine, more suitable to fighting the little "brushfire conflicts" than major land operations?
Rumsfeld deserves a Pres-idiot Medal Of Freedom for fighting in Iraq with the "Army he had, not the Army he wished he had". In other words, the Army he built.
I have no confidence that George W. Bush will start listening to his Generals any time soon. He never has before.
Folks, we are coming to a critical turning point in the history of the United States. If Bush won't listen to the polls, or the elections, or his own Generals, then it's time to make those in Washington and the Pentagon to listen to the people.
What I am proposing may be the first large scale operation undertaken by The American Patriot Institute and it's no joke.
I am calling for a massive demonstration in Washington, D.C. on the day Bush finally announces his new plan to "move forward" in Iraq. I'm talking about something that hasn't been seen in this country since the late '60's, early '70's. Hundreds of thousands of Veterans, working Americans and concerned citizens converging on the capitol to voice our displeasure with the current Administration.
I realize that this will take a lot of work, but the machinery is already in place here in the blogosphere. All we have to do is implement it.
It's our country, it's our White House, let's take it back.
