Better deployment

Our president now feels that additional troops need to be sent to Iraq to counter a perceived new crisis there. Countering such a crisis may or may not be the right action to take.

However, it seems to me that instead of sending additional troops for that purpose, it would be better to transfer some troops from some other present engagement in Iraq that is no longer a crisis situation. Surely, there must be some situations there that are no longer critical.
