Bush Seeks 8,200 more Troops for Wars

The question is will the Democrats cave-in to Bush's demands. You have to admire this President's arrogance. He doesn't back down one bit. Bush don't care whether his mother disapproves:
President Bush asked Congress on Saturday for $3.2 billion to pay for 8,200 more U.S. troops needed in Afghanistan and Iraq on top of the 21,500-troop buildup he announced in January.

Bush wants Congress to fund 3,500 new U.S. troops to expand training of local police and army units in Afghanistan. The money also would pay for the estimated 3,500 existing U.S. troops he already announced would be staying longer in the region to counter an anticipated Taliban offensive in Afghanistan this spring.
