Soldiers with the latest Stryker brigade to arrive in Iraq secure a road as residents walk by during a patrol in the Taji area, May 15. The Soldiers are with the 4th Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division, from Fort Lewis, Wash. The 4-2 SBCT is the fourth of five brigades to arrive in Iraq as part of the president's "surge" of troops into the Baghdad area. Unfortunately - it won't be enough. We should see how many troops we put on the ground in WWII in Italy, Germany, Japan and other locations and compare that ratio to the square miles of Iraq v. troops. The brigade assumed official responsibility for the area north of Baghdad including a part of deadly Diyala province.
