So, do I look like a ruler in this or what?
Bush 'to reveal Iraq troop boost'
By Justin Webb
BBC News, Washington
US President George W Bush intends to reveal a new Iraq strategy within days, the BBC has learnt.No point in training Casey Sheehan's killers to kill more Americans.
The speech will reveal a plan to send more US troops to Iraq to focus on ways of bringing greater security, rather than training Iraqi forces.
The move comes with figures from Iraqi ministries suggesting that deaths among civilians are at record highs.
The US president arrived back in Washington on Monday after a week-long holiday at his ranch in Texas.
The BBC has been told by a senior administration source that the speech setting out changes in Mr Bush's Iraq policy is likely to come in the middle of next week.
Its central theme will be sacrifice.
The speech, the BBC has been told, involves increasing troop numbers.
The exact mission of the extra troops in Iraq is still under discussion, according to officials, but it is likely to focus on providing security rather than training Iraqi forces.
This also means they want to go into Sadr City.
This is where the 110th Congress has got to do their job. No more Warners and Roberts covering Bush's ass. And Lieberman has been turned into a joke.
I know people don't believe me, but I don't think Bush's presidency survives a rejection of his Iraq plan. Because there will be hearings and hard questions and unlike the GOP, people will expect answers. If Terri Schaivo began the road to the end of the GOP domination of Congress, this will do the same for Bush.
Because he has no support for this and doesn't realize it.
