another "two or three years"

By Remy Benoit

A CNN poll. this morning shows that 81% think that more troops will not solve the problem.

And yet, from The New York Times, John F. Burns, and Truthout War Could Last Years, Commander Says.

The major question remains as to how to support the troops in place, without funding an escalation (remember that word)? From CNN, Ted Barrett, Washington Bureau Chief Democrats considering ways to block escalation of war.

Another question not be asked too loudly is how repairs, maintenance to equipment can be kept up with as it is in constant use, as in the current
moves into Baghdad. From the AP and MSNBC Iraqi forces battle gunmen in central Baghdad
U.S. military serves as backup after militants attack army checkpoints.

A few weeks ago when I was in the Post Office, there were some there mailing big boxes to the soldiers - supplies, razors, shampoo, etc. Keep it up! Any Soldier.
