RATIO OF TROOPS TO OPPOSITION WORSENS DAILY
The number of Iraqis in opposition to our troops and their armament and their relative organization have all increased vis a vis our troops. What we could have accomplished with 140,000 troops and, god forbid, a plan in place is long gone. We've given the opposition time to organize and arm which leads to the conclusion that our troops are more in harms way for each passing day.
With luck the Democrats can secure enough Congressional control in November to pry the hither to inept GOP leadership away from sole planning authority. This should free up the military to more freely disclose what needs to be done operationally and what results are most likely.
