The population of Baghdad is about six million. The two keys to Bush’s new plan are 22,000 more troops and the cooperation of the Iraqi Prime Minister, Malaki. What difference can 22,000 troops make in a densely populated city of 6 million with block to block hand to hand fighting. In addition, Malaki is opposed to almost evertything Bush wants to do. Especially he does not want to take on Sadar City. Is this other than a suicidal plan throwing more money and more good men after more good men.
