Bridges And Overpasses

The insurgents in Iraq have started destroying bridges and highway overpasses.

Um. You do realize what this portends if they keep it up, right? More chokepoints and opportunities to ambush U.S. and pro-American Iraqi troops. Oh, and don't think for a second that the "surge" is going to help keep those bridges and overpasses from being bombed out. Think about the simple arithmetic people... how many troops does it take to hold onto a bridge? How many bridges do the Americans have to hold 24/7 as long as there's an insurgency? How many divisions of American troops are in Iraq? How many divisions of Iraqi forces are available to help them?
