Is it surge or serge?

There is no excuse for any American stronghold in Iraq not to secure the territory adjacent to it's own perimeter. It's a glaring edifice to our bumbling impotence that the insurgents control the villages right up to the wire, including villages whose economy is partially dependent on us...who just might be somewhat more interested in our success. Soldiers who would much rather be facing the enemy are forced to lag about the bases many distractions...the PX, MWR etc. In fact take a look at any Command Post; how many are helping, how many are are in the war?

As long as we have little garrison USA, what's the motivation to take risks, either for enlisted men (physical risk) or officers (career risk)?
