Bush to tout "sacrifice" theme; "surge"

US President George W Bush intends to reveal a new Iraq strategy within days, the BBC has learnt.

The speech will reveal a plan to send more US troops to Iraq to focus on ways of bringing greater security, rather than training Iraqi forces.

The move comes with figures from Iraqi ministries suggesting that deaths among civilians are at record highs.

The US president arrived back in Washington on Monday after a week-long holiday at his ranch in Texas.

The BBC was told by a senior administration source that the speech setting out changes in Mr Bush's Iraq policy is likely to come in the middle of next week.

Its central theme will be sacrifice.

The speech, the BBC has been told, involves increasing troop numbers.

The exact mission of the extra troops in Iraq is still under discussion, according to officials, but it is likely to focus on providing security rather than training Iraqi forces.

The proposal, if it comes, will be highly controversial.

Already one senior Republican senator has called it Alice in Wonderland.

The need to find some way of pacifying Iraq has been underlined by statistics revealed by various ministries in the Iraqi government, suggesting that well over 1,000 civilians a month are dying.
I have an idea for President Bush. It's a crazy idea but it might just work. How about making the other sonofabitches sacrifice? You know, the enemy? How about discarding the strategically crippling Limited War mentality we've trapped ourselves in, and letting our troops destroy the enemy, win, and come home? Now the plan is to "bring greater security"-does that mean our warriors will be given even more police and social work duties?

What a joke. I look forward to hearing the President's plan from his own mouth, but it isn't sounding good so far.
