U.S. Announces Troop Deployments to Iraq

Pentagon Announces That 57,000 U.S. Troops Have Been Told to Deploy to Iraq in Early 2007

WASHINGTON Nov 17, 2006 (AP)— The Pentagon announced Friday that 57,000 U.S. troops, including five combat brigades, have been told to deploy to Iraq early next year a move that will maintain current force levels there.

Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld signed the deployment orders for about 20,000 soldiers from active duty Army brigades based in North Carolina, Georgia, Washington, Kansas and Italy. Another 10,000 reserves and 27,000 active duty troops are scheduled to go to Iraq in smaller units.

I've been telling you about this since the election, here's the proof. Bush is getting ready for one big final push.

This is disgusting, Pat. I am genuinely disturbed that more Americans are being sent out to die "for blood and empire" (to quote the band, Anti-Flag). We need to leave Iraq now because collapse is inevitable. By leaving though, we will give grassroots movements (such as the Communist Party in Iraq) the chance to embrace democracy and revolt against the terror controlling the region on their own accord.

This was the biggest mistake from the beginning; not waiting for the Iraqi people to engage revolution. It's the equivalent of the French starting the American revolution! Revolution can only come from within.

I think it is time to cut a deal with Saddam, and give him his country back. These people don't want Democracy. They have been brainwashed by the Mullah's for century's. Saddam had the beast under control, as bad as it may have been. GB released the genie from the bottle. For what? Saddam's lies, WMD's, Democracy?

Either Nukem..., like should have been done initially, or leave them to fend for themselves under the control of Saddam.
