... for Iraq. And even that wasn't enough.

I'd actually like to read the whole simulation rather than just a summary from CNN, but it certainly looks like what we have committed now wasn't sufficient.

I read another article on that simulation that stated that the outcome showed even with the 400,000 troops there were going to be major risks of a challenging insurgency.

All this information was out there. It was willfully ignored by the administration, which is why you saw Shinseki get tossed out and why there has been so much friction between the pols and the career military.

Gross negligence.
