Troop Surge

This new troop surge (Bush's plan to put an additional 21,000 US troops into Iraq) is very interesting from an operational perspective. It really looks like the US is gearing up for a major offensive against the JAM (Mahdi Army) and the other Shiite militias within the Baghdad area. It is possible that an operation into Sadr City against the Mahdi Army could happen in 30-60 days. It would be the US Army and Iraqi government's largest offensive operation since the battle of Fallujah in November 2004, and demonstrate a real departure for the Iraqi government--targeting the very Shias that brought Prime Minister Maliki to power.
