WASHINGTON (AFP) - The US Congress's new Democratic leaders warned President George W. Bush that surging more troops into Iraq would fail and it was time to end the war, days before his expected unveiling of a new US strategy.
Pelosi and Reid called on Bush to start a phased redeployment of US forces within four to six months.
"After nearly four years of combat, tens of thousands of US casualties and over 300 billion dollars, it is time to bring the war to a close," the two leaders wrote.

Apparently, and preventing to call this war a failure, it still had become a failure. It seemed from the first moment that it's a war only promising more deaths and battles, yet which war doesn't? But to keep investing in this war as Bush continues doing is a hopeless decision, moreover the Bush administration has squeezed themselves in one crazy situation, if they leave, a sectarian war will prevail and if they stay, well the same thing will and is happening.
Eventually, another solution should be found for Iraq, probably UN Peacekeepers with authorities will be sent to Iraq to maintain "Peace", the US troops to redeploy, with time end their presence in Iraq and to finally end their extravagant spending which they can probably use in a more useful way.
