The Right Type of 'Surge'. Any troop increase must be large and lasting

Reports on the Bush administration's efforts to craft a new strategy in Iraq often use the term 'surge' but rarely define it. Estimates of the number of troops to be added in Baghdad range from fewer than 10,000 to more than 30,000. Some 'surges' would last a few months, others a few years.

A Perfect Failure

To say that this is not a new idea is an understatement.

'Happy Days!' The Iraqi elections really could be a turning point

The purple ink on 11 million Iraqi fingers had not yet dried after an unprecedented, almost miraculous exercise in democratic freedom--and already there were querulous American critics working hard to make light of the whole thing.

Quebraderos de cabeza de la retirada

Abandoning Iraq. Does Rep. Murtha understand the consequences of immediate withdrawal from Iraq?

Rep. Jack Murtha has had a distinguished congressional career. But his outburst last Thursday was breathtakingly irresponsible.

'Those Subtle Chinese'

New security structures are needed in East Asia, but they should involve America's democratic allies, all of whom now share an increasing fear of a China whose rise may or may not be entirely peaceful.

Democracy now

We do not know how close the American effort in Iraq may be to irrecoverable failure.
