The Times Stretches, Rubs its Eyes, and...
...actually looks at the world for a change. A fine, fine article by Michael R. Gordon hits a lot of important points, but I'll give you the money quote first:
Dispatches: Sending the Guard: "No doubt the Defense Department projects that the occupation force in 2005 will be a fraction of the current troop presence. But that is what the Defense Department initially projected for September 2003."
Other good things in the article:
For months, soldiers at Camp Doha, Kuwait, have been wearing T-shirts that say, "Operation Iraqi Freedom: Mission Accomplished." But recently a new T-shirt has appeared suggesting that the mission may be more open-ended.

It reads, "Operation Iraqi Freedom: Established 2003."
