More U.S. Soldiers will mean more U.S. Casualties

As the Washington Times points out - Bush plan's to have more troops than ever before in Iraq. From the history of the Vietnam war we should realize that increasing the deployment while proportionally increase casualties and injuries.

Meanwhile, the Iraqis who don't want us there, and who don't believe we will ever leave have added reason to be angry.

Times article here:

Biggest US force ever in Iraq by January

Washington, DC, Dec. 1 (UPI) -- More than 10,000 U.S. troops will stay in Iraq beyond their year deployment and 1,500 more soldiers will be deployed there in advance of Iraq's election.
The new deployment bring the U.S. force in Iraq to 150,000 troops in January, the largest force the United States has had in that nation, including during the March 2003 invasion.
