Top Democrats oppose Iraq `surge'

In a strongly worded letter to President Bush, the Democratic leaders of Congress said Friday that they oppose any escalation, or surge, of U.S. troop strength in Iraq, as Bush is expected to propose next week. Sending more American soldiers to Iraq will only endanger them, wont bring stability and will only delay the day that Iraqis take responsibility for their own country, said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. They urged Bush instead to begin withdrawing some U.S. forces from Iraq over the next four to six months.
