President Bush Addresses Nation with New Plan for Iraq

Posted: Updated:

President Bush addressed the nation with his new war plan for Iraq Wednesday evening.

It includes a plan to surge 21,500 troops, speed up the training of Iraqis, and offer funds and training to win the hearts and minds of Iraqi civilians. The plan also calls for the Iraqi military forces to take over security for the entire country by November.

Top republicans are standing behind the president and his decision on how to proceeed with the War on Terror.

Democrats, now in power on Capitol Hill, held the first of several hearings on the war.  Military experts say the president's plan won't guarantee a victory.

In an online poll we conducted right here, we asked "Do you think 21,500 more troops should be sent to Iraq?"  60% of you voted no, 38% of you voted yes, and 2% were undecided.
