Surge, surge, who wants a surge?

Not the Iraqi government: International Herald Tribune
Not the American public: Yahoo News

If this sucker fails, we won't have to wonder why.

Bush targets Iran and Syria

http://www.financialsense.com/fsu/editorials/sutton/2006/1214.html http://www.financialsense.com/editorials/hodges/2006/1116.html Hmm, the slaves don't seem to be as happy as they're told they ought to be. Selfish, ungrateful slaves!
