Pace: Another Troop Build Up Possible

Monday July 16, 2007 2:16 PM

By ROBERT BURNS

AP Military Writer

BAGHDAD (AP) - The U.S. military's top general said Monday
that the Joint Chiefs of Staff is weighing a range of possible
new directions in Iraq, including, if President Bush deems it
necessary, an even bigger troop build up.

Making no predictions, Marine Gen. Peter Pace revealed that he
and the chiefs of the Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force
are obliged to consider various troop-level scenarios before
September, when Bush will receive an assessment of the Iraq
situation from his top commander there, Gen. David Petraeus.

In a separate interview later at the U.S. Embassy after
conferring with Pace and Petraeus, Lt. Gen. Raymond Odierno,
the No. 2 commander in Iraq, said he did not foresee requesting
more troops.

Right now I can't find an assessment where I would say I need
more troops, he said, adding that he is confident that by
September he will be able to give Petraeus his advice on how
the troop buildup is working.
