ONE OF THE PLANS BEING TALKED ABOUT IS
A TEMPORARY SURGE IN TROOP NUMBERS...
but SOME TOP DEMOCRATS say THAT'S NOT
THE WAY TO GO.



SENATOR JOE BIDEN/(D)Delaware

"we should be drawing down troops
putting pressure on the Iraqi
government to settle their sectarian
differences rather than putting more
troops in and acting like apartheid
cops."



MEANWHILE the DEADLY ATTACKS ON
AMERICAN FORCES on the front lines has
reached a grim milestone.. THE NUMBER
