At last --- a mistake ! ! !

Click here: FOXNews.com - Officials: Army Extends Combat Tours For 4,000 Soldiers in Iraq - Local News | News Articles | Natio

This takes courage so soon before an election.

President George W. Bush has demonstrated courage.

I am a strong supporter of the Coalition of the Willing (American-led) in the cause of Iraqi liberty, democracy and human rights. The Iraqis want it. It's good for them, good for us and good for the world.

But it has to be their fight.

The 4,000 additional troops are principally symbolic.

Wrong move.

what exactly are you saying is a mistake? Keeping the 4,000 troops in Iraq? This isn't the first time the Army has forced troops to stay on after their tour was over. What's different about this time? I certainly hope you aren't advocating altering military strategy abroad in order to swing an election one way or another at home.

Obviously, the Army wouldn't be doing this if the commanders didn't think the security situation warranted it. Why are you second guessing them? With no end to the carnage in Baghdad and environs in sight, the Army bringing those troops home could affect the election even more than letting them stay.
