President orders a halt on drawdown
President Bush has ordered a halt on withdrawal of units from Iraq. With the fighting that is going on right now, it is not easy to see how the issue will be decided by summer. I would expect enemy resistance to weaken as time goes on. The ability of the 'insurgents' to re-supply and reinforce can only be slowed down by our domination in the desert. This can only help isolate the cities, which is where the fighting is taking place. Anytime you can narrow the battlefield into smaller areas of concentration, greater firepower and supply will tend to dominate, particularly if you are able to interdict the enemy's ability to reinforce and supply its forces.
