The Democrats are warning the President against a troop surge, what do they intend to do?

John McCain says the surge needs to be "significant and sustained". Which way will the axe fall?

    It doesn't amaze me the morons that answers questions on here.

    Anyway, they'll send more troops because they don't have the balls to tell the man to listen to the sage advice he's getting from Generals and the ISG, that clearly says more troops won't help. Unless he sends those troops with the express pupose of training Iraqi forces to stand on their own, this will do nothing but increase the violence as has been attested to by our own Generals (that have recently "retired").

    Honestly, I hope this works. And if it doesn't I say we strictly follow the Democrats plan of training and strategic redeployment. We get our men out of there unless they are helping the Iraqis secure their own country.

    We have a quagmire in our own political system. And it's a damn shame for every American who won't be appeased when their politicians play "politics" with American lives.

    Call Bush's hand and keep calling it till he folds and steps up to the mic and cashes in his chips. Delaying the inevitable has been his fortay from the get go. Carl Levin (D), Chairman of the Armed forces committiee in the House will go along with a surge provided there is re-deployment/withdrawal thrown into the agreement. Until he makes such amendmendmant proposals transparent and consistant with the will of the general public--no comment is appropriate. Senator Biden is against any such action. So far so good.

    The Resident in Chief has the ultimate say on what the policy will be. Nothing he decides to do will get the rubber stamp anymore--and he better get used to the concept. Americans are getting pretty fed up with the Simian Boy King and his continued denial and attack mentality will be his downfall. All the Dems have to do is keep the monkey in his cage until his day of Impeachment--and that's good enough for me.

    That is being in between "a rock and a hard place". It will probably end up being a stalemate due to both sides wanting and neither side giving. While this happens the only ones that suffers, are the troops. Either send the additional help, or pull them all out. But the bickering between partys needs to end.

    Pretty much every general on the ground in Iraq agree a "surge" will NOT fix the problems and most likely will make matters worse.

    Yet W, who avoided serving when asked himself, somehow thinks he knows better than the professionals.

    Thus if you read the news today, he is actively replacing those generals that don't agree with him with Generals that will agree with him. Thus we will end up sending more brave kids to their deaths.

    Iraq needs to step up and take care of their own matters. We need to get out of the way and let them deal with it. Same goes for Isreal. They are capable of fighting their own wars, we need to let them and stop being the damn police.

    Most Democrats are not against this because they feel the President from the beginning screwed things up by not putting enough boots on the ground. I think this will happen.

    Good Luck!!!

    perhaps they planned on following the recommendations of a bipartisan study group charged with the task of finding real solutions to the quagmire.

    The Democrats will probably caucus, then they'll hem and haw for a while, then the'll hold a bake sale to raise money for a homeless picnic, then they'll claim that Bush lied, then they'll go on Tv and demand that we cut & run. Then they'll turn on each other, like they always do.

    If it works take all the credit. If it doesn't blame that Bush is out of control.
