I know, it sounds like the set up for an easy punchline, but actually it's Robert Reich mulling over the escalation:

Question: Why is Bush willing to risk his party's future, as well as his own legacy, by putting more troops into Iraq when it's clear to almost everyone - including top military brass, foreign policy experts, and most analysts and journalists on the ground there - that Iraq is descending so quickly into civil war that more troops won't make a bit of difference except causing more American deaths and instigating more violence?
