IF BUSH REALLY THINKS WE SHOULD HAVE EVEN MORE SOLDIERS slaughtering and being slaughtered in Iraq, then let him be the first to volunteer to go. It's about time, after all.

Bizarre situation. An unpopular and inept leader wants to increase the scope of an unpopular war, over the objections of virtually all experienced military leaders, including those doing the fighting. That circumstance leads to military coups in some countries. A military coup would be a disaster, of course. Not advocating it and don't think it's even remotely in the picture here. But how much worse a disaster would it be than the Bushevik regime has already been?
