2 More Years

What exactly does two more years in Iraq mean?

The U.S. Army expects to keep its troop strength in Iraq at the current level of about 120,000 for at least two more years, according to the Army's top operations officer.

While allowing for the possibility that the levels could decrease or increase depending on security conditions and other factors, Lt. Gen. James J. Lovelace Jr. told reporters yesterday that the assumption of little change through 2006 represents "the most probable case."

What does 2 more years mean? Well, we have been in Iraq 23 months. Just under two years. Asuming that our President, who never changes course ever, does the same thing for 2 more years. Thats 1,380 more dead, over 10,000 more wounded. That's 300 billion more dollars spent (80 billion more right now). And for what?
