Speaking of the upcoming quarter

As Antiwar.com holds our quarterly fundraising drive, the US military announces its plans for the upcoming quarter as well.

Major General Rick Lynch promises us an increase in US soldiers being killed in Iraq, primarily a result of the latest troop surge. Major General William Caldwell reminds us that things will also likely get even worse for the Iraqi people.

Is this the same surge that was supposedly going to be a major turning point in the American occupation of Iraq? Because it seems to me that a rising body count and an ever worsening situation for the Iraqi populace is essentially the same thing they’ve been giving us for the last four years.
