Well, we know now there will be a troop "surge."
As far as I'm concerned, the Lieberman OP-Ed coming out today in support of the concept makes it a sure thing.

Which leads to the next question...why are they still waiting to announce it?

1. The GOP want to take the limelight away from the Dems takeover
of the new congress. Nothing better than to come in early January with a lot of noise. They realize that no one is really paying attention during the holidays.

They are all about politics....and so their strategy is the same as was always.

3. Oh, I get it. It's like a TV ratings strategy.
Don't want to go on in prime time opposite the Saddam execution on channel 10. So you change from Wednesday to Thursday night when Pelosi and the Inquisition is on channel 22.

No wait. Junior doesn't pay any attention to polls. He said so, so it must be true.

5. I think that will be a time they need more troops world wide.
I feel that world wide it will look like a Ch. thing and mostly Am. If you look Am. I would say leave and come home now. If you are Ch. in these countries good luck and you have my pity. A court we set up run by Iraq people will not do it. The world will look at the WH I am willing to bet.

4. A military escalation. Using American soldiers.
Let's not use their euphemisms even with quotes.

6. The Dems better step up and throw cold water on this.
I want to see what an opposition party looks like.

7. Maybe they'll try to "sell" it as a response to the increase
of violence they expect after Saddam's execution...
