I'll listen to generals. [...] I'm going to rely upon their judgment, the next question is, how good is their judgment; or is my judgment good enough to figure out whether or not they know what they're doing? And I'm going to tell you I've got great confidence in General John Abizaid

With Iraq Speech, Bush to Pull Away From His Generals
Gen. John P. Abizaid, the outgoing head of Central Command, said less than two months ago that adding U.S. troops was not the answer for Iraq.

A US Army battalion fighting in a critical area of eastern Afghanistan is due to be withdrawn within weeks to deploy to Iraq.

Grim picture of Iraq from US government watchdog
The report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) ran a critical rule over a previous failed US plan for victory, the malfunctioning Iraqi government government and security forces and fearsome insurgent and sectarian violence.

It said the Pentagon had failed to allow proper congressional oversight of Iraqi armed forces, and warned of an increasing strain on US forces pressed into repeated tours of duty and shortages of military supplies.
I agree with The Vidiot, how did we get here and HOW DO WE STOP!?
