...that Iraqi boys can do for themselves

Maybe now that the election is over, the administration can admit that it needs more troops in Iraq, or so hopes Andrew Sullivan:

The notion that Falluja would be one-stop shopping for insurgents was obviously, sadly, over-optimistic. So do we have enough troops to quell an insurgency that seems, even now, to be gaining strength elsewhere? And does the Bush administration have the capacity to admit past mistakes in order to prevent future ones?

~the only way Bush will be able to get more troops anywhere is by reinstituting the draft...and that is a scary thought in and of itself...a draft will allow Bush to wage war on every religion other than his beloved (zealot) right wing Christian faith...~

I agree that the military is pushed to its limit, and that there may not be more troops to be had, which could spell doom in Iraq. But let's cool down on the draft talk. That takes an act of Congress, which is not impossible, maybe not even unlikely, but not easy. And I dislike the president as much as the next guy, but I don't believe he plans to wage a global holy war.
