Bush, While Admitting the US is Losing in Iraq. Is Pushing Expansion of the Empire of Militarism

20 December 2006 at 2:06:28 PM

When I heard the other day that Bush wanted to *surge* more troops into Iraq, I wondered where the heck those troops were going to come from, if not from troops already stretched thin and on yet another tour of duty. Last night on Hardball, some guy from the National Guard association said that they'd be happy to put more national guard servicemen in Iraq and that we already are using 60% of NG to supplement the regular army, etc. Sixty percent! 

Maybe somebody smacked Bush with a pretzel so that he realized that the troops just aren't there to do what he wants, so, with the goal of making our society even MORE militarized, he decided to ask Gates to find out how to get more people into the service. The main way I could see for this to happen is a budgeting issue; ie, spending even MORE of our taxdolllars on DOD. Please. This needs to stop.

They took what they thought was the easy road, condemning not the criminal policies themselves, but only the administration's handling of the wars. This led some to call not for an end to the wars, but for more troops.
