BBC: Bush 'to reveal Iraq troop boost'
BBC NEWS - Bush 'to reveal Iraq troop boost': "US President George W Bush intends to reveal a new Iraq strategy within days, the BBC has learnt.
The speech will reveal a plan to send more US troops to Iraq to focus on ways of bringing greater security, rather than training Iraqi forces.
The move comes with figures from Iraqi ministries suggesting that deaths among civilians are at record highs."
3000 Americans dead, more troops on the way, civilian casualties at unprecedented levels... happy new year.
