Long-Term Security

By Ryan McGreal
Published May 31, 2007

As a quick follow-up to yesterday's blog about the escalation of US forces in Iraq, US President George W. Bush just said he'd like to see a long-term US troop presence in Iraq to maintain "stability," using South Korea as an example. The US has been in South Korea for half a century.

In totally unrelated news, President Bush has just doubled the number of Secret Service agents who will protect him after the end of his presidency.
