The troops for the surge have all finally arrived.

The full contingent of new U.S. forces being sent to Iraq — what military leaders call a “surge” of troops to improve security and stability in the capital — was completed by Friday, with 28,500 additional troops now posted in the country, a U.S. military spokesman said.

“The strategic movement of forces into the theater is complete, and the surge is just starting,” said U.S. military spokesman Lt. Col. Christopher Garver. “Now that the force is here, we’ll see the counterinsurgency start in full swing, and we’ll be able to execute the strategy as it was designed.”

Someone really needs to inform Reid and Pelosi that something can’t fail before it’s even really got going.

Unless you’re politicizing the war, that is.
