Plan to Fail

It seems to me that Bush is not actually intending for a troop "surge" in Iraq but is choosing to promote a plan that has no chance of being approved by Congress in order to be able to say that he had a plan to win, but his opponents wouldn't let him fight to win. I may be misoverestimating the pRedisent's intelligence with an "I wudda whupped Iraq's ass but the liberals wouldn't let me" scheme; the poor fool may have just painted himself into a political corner and up the walls. It doesn't seem to appeal to many people now but could be revived as a myth in a future electoral cycle when people have forgotten what was happening in 06 and 07. Democrats should quickly put the "surge" out of its misery.

And what is this story about a Pentagon plan to go to war with Moqtada al-Sadr's Mehdi Army?
