Nancy Pelosi Calls For More Troops

Sounds like a bit of bullshit to me, but she did imply that, more or less.

Asked about this possiblity, she said she was against the war, but if you do go to war, you either go "full-force" or you don't go at all.

The implication then is that she would support more troops.

I rather doubt that. I think it's rhetoric. She's committed to bugging out.

She may make a nonsense offering of this sort -- a token number of fresh troops in exchange for a six-month timetable. Not a genuine offer. Not nearly enough new troops to have any realistic chance of getting the job done, so that all troops can come home.

But she'll have her little rhetorical dodge, her petty political posturing in a time of war. And that's what passes for leadership in the Democratic Party.

I am, however, willing to be pleasantly surprised.

Just thought I'd mention it, as it's interesting.
