Increasing troop levels is a bad idea. First, we do not have the troops to send. Any attempt to send more troops to Iraq would, “at the moment, threaten to break our nation’s all-volunteer Army and undermine our national security.” Second, a greater U.S. troops presence “risks further stoking the flames of the insurgency by feeding perceptions of long-term U.S. occupation among many Iraqis.”
Notably, the McCain-Lieberman-Cornyn position has virtually no public support: only 8 percent of Americans support sending more troops to Iraq.
LSB: Why does Cornyn even bother to open his mouth? He wouldn’t know a cogent argument if it bit him on the ass – nor could be locate one even if it were put in a paper bag and he was given a flashlight and used both hands to look for it. He and Kay Bailey – why do Texas voters elect these mental midgets? (No offense to the midget reading this blog.)
