More troops on the ground can't help but lower the incidences of violence but (there's that word again) chances of more casualties per incident is also an inevitable result.
Have the Iraqi and the allied defending forces of a free Iraq under order to wipe out those terrorist cells with either a complete unconditional surrender of opposing forces or not one breathing survivor from those terrorizing the people of a free Iraq. Those Iraqi citizen members of groups opposed to the freely elected government of the Iraqi nation found to be part and party with those that would deny freedoms of the people of Iraq should be imprisoned and publicly tried for treasons.

right on with that comment. Take out the bad guys by surrender or total inhalation of them.

For sensible & knowledgeable answer, MUST ask the whacked-out or nutty SECTARIANS, whom historically have killed each for sport.

America "bolsters" the strength of the Muslim majority within the Middle East and American men and women are killed in the process. All the while the Muslim majority of Iraq takes whatever America has to give while it stalks, persecutes, tortures, mutilates and murders Christians living within the borders of the nation. After all since America is a predominantly Christian nation and we SHOULD spill our blood for the Muslims. It seems that there is no such thing as "freedom of religion" within the borders of Iraq or any other Muslim nation.
