Surging Into Action

Everything you wanted to know about The Surge, and more, in Dean Barnett’s latest patented FAQ list.

Update: Glenn Reynolds adds:

As Barnett notes, though, this is not merely an increase in troops but also, and more importantly, a change in tactics. Will it be enough? I don’t know. I have to say, though, that it’s been amusing to see the same people who were recently demanding that Bush send more troops suddenly reverse and criticize him for . . . sending more troops. The question of troop numbers is one where reasonable people can and do differ, but that doesn’t mean that lame political oppositionalism isn’t recognizable as such.

IndeedTM.

Another Update: Mary Katharine Ham has a bipartisan update on who’s for and against the surge. Just for the record, I agree with Jonah Goldberg on the dubious notion of this Serge.

More: Not all in the Federation approve of Star Fleet Command’s latest actions, however.

Meanwhile, Margaret Carlson appears to be forgainst the surge.
