Early morning note: Iraq

The situation in Iraq seems to be spinning out of control. Could someone please ask Bush what his plans are. Obviously, the original plan needs some changes. The administration is seeking to shift more money to security and away from rebuilding. It would be nice to have a national discussion on whether this is the right strategy.

From my standpoint:
- Bush should go back to the U.N., apologize and ask for help. No one in the world really wants an unstable Iraq and it seems that things are heading in that direction. It's time to get a true coalition there to stabilize things.
- Don't shrink from military involvement. It may be bad in the polls but the US troops need to be given order to go full bore. If they don't, things will fester.
