Troop Surge is what?

In President Bush’s weekly radio address, he made the following statement

We saw their valor in battle-tested warriors who signed up for a second, or third, or fourth tour -- and made the troop surge in Iraq that I announced two years ago today one of the great successes in American military history.

I’m willing to admit that the troop surge was a success. But a success along the lines of “Hey Bush, why don’t you send more troops to Iraq?” repeated by a chorus of advisors for two years before he finally, reluctantly, sent troops. As for “…one of the great successes in American military history”, somehow I don’t think so.

Only one weekend left.
