Bush: U.S. Needs to Increase Army Size

Shit...we'll...better go get packed.

President Bush says the U.S. needs to increase the size of Army and Marines, and says strategy and tactics in Iraq will change to meet the situation on the ground. Bush also said Wednesday that insurgents in Iraq thwarted U.S. efforts at "establishing security and stability throughout the country" in 2006.

I'm not a big fan of the whole "cut and run" option. Maybe it's because I have a hint of national pride or maybe it's because we still haven't really brought any justice to those responsible for Sept. 11th 2001 but at some point we really should just tell the Iraqi's, "Well, good luck, we did our best."

At a year-end news conference, Bush said the United States will "ask more of our Iraqi partners" in 2007, and he pledged to work with the new Democratic Congress, as well.

Oh thanks Mr. President. I'm happy you've decided to work with Congress. Newsflash, you don't get a fucking cookie for doing your job.

Bush sidestepped one question _ whether he would order a so-called surge of troops in Iraq as a first-step toward gaining control of the violent and chaotic situation there. "Nice try," he told a reporter who asked about his plans.

So since when did we stop demanding our government to inform us as to what they are doing FOR us? Nice try? What the fuck does that mean? You were asked a question asshole. ANSWER IT. I didn't ask you what you got me for Christmas. I asked you what you're doing about the WAR!
