We may not have enough troops in Iraq...

But you know Dear Leader will be able to summon enough of them to use as props tonight. After all, in explaining the war, who could be more compliant than those ordered to give the appropriately timed "hoo-ahh".

Worked swell for the thes guy on the far left:

Of course, Dear Leader will get to stand on a platform so he is always higher than the troops.

This will likely work about as well. Especially given what he is allegedly going to talk about:
Faced with polls showing public doubts that the situation in Iraq is improving, President Bush will emphasize in an address on Tuesday night that there is a "clear path to victory" and urge Americans to maintain their resolve, the White House spokesman, Scott McClellan, said Monday.

Mr. Bush will speak to the nation at 8 p.m. from Fort Bragg, N.C., before an audience of hundreds of troops. ABC said it would carry the address live. CBS and NBC said they had yet to decide. Tuesday is the first anniversary of the formal transfer of sovereignty to the Iraqis after the American-led invasion.

Mr. McClellan suggested that Mr. Bush would not signal any change in military or diplomatic strategy. Instead, he said, the president will emphasize that Iraq is making progress despite the mounting loss of life, and that the United States cannot allow the understandable concern about the violent insurgency to deter it from completing the job.

Mr. McClellan said Mr. Bush would "be talking in a very specific way" about his strategy of training and equipping Iraqis to defend themselves while encouraging them to move ahead with the writing of a constitution and the establishment of a stable democracy....

I'm betting when they say in a "very specific way" we will hear lie after lie, and that's about it as far as specifics go.
