Dr Rob Johnson talks about the implications of President Bush’s recent announcement that an additional 20,000 troops will be heading to Iraq.
What difference would 20,000 troops make
Has America understimated the task
Example of successful counter-insurgency campaigns
Are local forces up to the job
Do multiple layers of conflict create special problems
Can the Iraqi government deal with the insurgency on it’s own
Does having American and British troops in Iraq make the problems worse
What can the American’s do with the extra troops
Are the American’s planning for the eventual collapse of Iraq
