does america needs a 'surge' protector?

"forget talks, bush prefers plan for 'surge' of 30,000 troops into iraq" - uk telegraph:

when president george w bush meets his national security team at his texan ranch this week to draw up a new military strategy for iraq, a 56-slide powerpoint presentation entitled choosing victory: a plan for success in iraq will be at the heart of their discussion.

the report, put together by frederick kagan, a conservative military analyst, and jack keane, a retired general, proposes "surging" at least 30,000 extra us troops into baghdad and other iraqi hotspots, as a first step to quelling the bloodshed and restoring security.

the strategy is at odds with the much-vaunted findings of the bipartisan panel of experts of the iraq study group (isg), not to mention the army's top commanders who argue that they do not need more forces on the ground and fear a further strain on resources.

but when mr bush announces his plans for iraq next month, he is expected to draw heavily on the kagan-keane plan – put together over a single weekend last month, after a brainstorming session with other senior, former military officers and defence experts.
somebody save us from the decider surge!

In the spirit of surviving the administration, I've turned to prose (ack).

Twas the night before Christmas
And all through [White] House
The creatures were stirring
Including head louse
The neo-cons sat one by one with great air
And looked at their mess with nary a care
They laughed with glee at where they had led
As visions of "victory" floated in their heads

And Cheney at his desk with W in his lap,
Who had just settled down for his afternoon nap.
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter
They jumped from their desks to see what was the matter
And "whish" past their eyes what was that mad flash?
Was it, could it, have been making a dash?
Past the secret service and with something in tow
It looked like a sleigh to eyes watching below
