The “surge” reduces American freedom of action in the Middle East (not to mention other theaters), based on the remote possibility that a short-term troop escalation will somehow unravel the Gordian knot of the Iraq war.

Do you believe that this is really true, though? I mean, do you think that Bush and Cheney and the gang honestly expect ANYTHING to result from the "surge"? I don't see any strategy at work, other than running out the clock and dumping the whole botch in the next guy's lap.


Ach, I forgot to put quotes around your statement...
