Pace: U.S. Troops in Iraq Could Rise
By ROBERT BURNS, AP Military Writer

25 minutes ago

BAGHDAD - The U.S. military is weighing new directions in Iraq, including an even bigger troop buildup if President Bush thinks his "surge" strategy needs a further boost, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said Monday[...]

The military must "be prepared for whatever it's going to look like two months from now," Pace said in an interview with two reporters traveling with him to Iraq from Washington.

"That way, if we need to plus up or come down" in numbers of troops in Iraq, the details will have been studied, he said.[...]


Don't you just love the euphemism, "plus up?" But shouldn't it have been "fuck up?" Oh no, wait, we're already in the middle of that "strategy."

The reporters should have pushed him out of the plane.
