To surge or not to surge.
Baghdad seems to be rising in violence, Shiite and Sunni Islamic sects have plunged into Civil War and the US is considering sending 20,000 more troops to Iraq.What has brought us to this point? Why are so many split on the issue of trying to “win” the war in Iraq?According to today’s NYTimes how is the prospect of increasing troops splitting the newly elected majority of the Democratic congress?Michael once again was outspoken during class, “ We are never going to win the war in Iraq….” He also made the point that the US at least owes it to the people there to leave them with a peaceful country.There is no right answer here, but I would like to know what each of you think about our possible increase in troop levels.
