Reuters: McCain Says U.S. Needs 10,000 More Troops in Iraq

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States needs at least 10,000 more troops in Iraq (news - web sites) and must curb domestic spending to pay for the war, John McCain, a Republican senator and former rival of President Bush (news - web sites), said on Thursday.


"We need to make tough decisions about where our wartime priorities lay and this means that we have to reassess our domestic priorities ... we simply cannot have it all -- tax cuts, pork for the special interests, ever-growing entitlement programs and war in Iraq," he said.

"Congress cannot demand discipline and sacrifice only of the men and women fighting in the desert. We need it at home as well," he said.
