About that "Surge" Thing....

I think this article by Pat Lang and Ray McGovern bears repeated reading. Never mind that, as they point out, it's a losing gambit. Instead, consider:

Analogies come to mind: the Bulge, Stalingrad, the Battle of Algiers. It will be total war with all the likelihood of excesses and mass casualties that come with total war.

To take up such a strategy and force our armed forces into it would be an immoral course of action, both for our troops and for the thousands more Iraqis bound to die.

Yeah, that's the money quote, but you'll have to "read the whole thing" to get the Bush/Nicholas II analogy.
