President Bush is expected to call for an increase of 20-thousand more troops in Iraq. 

Today area Representative Mac Thornberry talked about policy in Iraq.

He stressed that Americans need to keep in mind the war is an ideological struggle.

He says the number of troops that needed to win the war is something he wants to leave up to President Bush. " We've got to keep in mind this is a political and ideological struggle, no one can afford to sit on the sidelines and critique Bush, we are all on the field too."

Meanwhile, congressional Democrats are talking about denying the money needed for the increase of troops Bush is expected to talk about.

That does not include cutting off support for troops already deployed.
