Presidentís plan goes against advice
To The Daily: President Bush has announced he will escalate the war in Iraq by sending more troops into the civil war. The presidentís plan ignores the American people who voted for change in November and who demand we bring our troops home.
It seems to me that over the past few weeks, the military, the generals, the independent panels appointed by the president, and almost everyone involved in the situation has said that increasing the number of troops will not help the situation. Why then would the president go against the recommendations of his top advisors?
This clearly is a political ploy, and it must be stopped before more American lives are lost. Democrats like Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Harry Reid should continue to question the president over this foolish plan, and do whatever needs to be done to stop it in Congress. The people made their voices heard, and if the president isnít going to listen, the Democratic Congress will.
