THIS WON"T MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!!
Last night, Pres. Bush announced to the world that he will be adding 20,000 troops to secure the city of Baghdad.
Let's do the math!
These 20,000 troops will have to patrol in shifts. From my understanding, with an escalation such as this, you would need to take the total number of additional troops and divide it by 4 to get the actual number of the increase of soldiers patroling the area at any given time. That means that we are actualy increasing our patrol of Baghdad by 5,000 troops. Hmmmm?
At any given time NYC has over 45,000 police officers on duty, and they still cannot elliminate crime in New York. With the increase in troops in Baghdad, we will still have nowhere near that 45,000 and it only takes a few suicide bombers to wreak havok on the city. The longer this debacle continues, the more resentment we generate in the area. We have already succeeded in bringing about a new regime, and it is time we declare victory. We need to bring our soldiers home before thousands more die for people who hate us.
