WASHINGTON, Dec. 23 â€” The American military command in Iraq is now willing to back a temporary increase in American troops in Baghdad as part of a broader Iraqi and United States effort to stem the slide toward chaos, senior American officials said Saturday.
President Bush and his advisers were told Saturday of the new position when Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates met with them at Camp David, an administration official said.
Until recently, the top ground commander in Iraq, Gen. George W. Casey Jr., has argued that sending more American forces into Baghdad and Anbar Province, the two most violent regions of Iraq, would increase the Iraqi dependency on Washington, and in the words of one senior official, â€œmake this feel more like an occupation.â€
Of course this will turn into a huge disaster, just like Bush wants. He wants the war to go badly, planned chaos, so they can then send in even more troops, with more weapons, and more bombs that were built by Bush Cronies, and they all get even richer.
Well before Tuesday, when Gates flew off to Iraq, it was clear that Cheney and Bush remained determined to stay the course (without using those words) for the next two years.
Message to Democrats. YOu know control the Congress. DO SOMETHING You weak, pathetic, lackeys. You can stop Bush from doing whatever you want. STOP KISSING HIS ASS, AND DO WHAT THE PEOPLE ELECTED YOU TO DO. Stop funding for the war, and impeach this F**king Monkey all ready.

Just a generation ago, Harold Washington was campaigning to become the first black mayor of Chicago, and he and Democratic presidential candidate Walter F. Mondale attended Sunday Mass at St. Pascal’s, a predominantly white Roman Catholic parish in Northwest Chicago. They were spit on, cursed and lucky to leave unharmed.
In the 2004 U.S. Senate campaign, Obama carried every precinct but one in St. Pascal’s Portage Park neighborhood. Talk to people who live there now and you could easily get the impression that Obama grew up one block over.
What is most striking about the surge of interest in Obama is the degree to which it is fueled by people’s estimation of him as an individual, not as a politician. His appeal is almost entirely personal. Abner Mikva, a former federal judge and Illinois congressman who taught with Obama at the University of Chicago, said Obama was probably the smartest man he had ever met. Yet people seldom see him as being anything other than the next-door neighbor they would love to have:
