U.S. lacks mechanism to accurately track troops wounded in Iraq

A Running Log of the Wounded

UPI reports :

As many as 1 of every 10 soldiers from the war on terror evacuated to the Army's biggest hospital in Europe was sent there for mental problems.

Between 8 and 10 percent of nearly 12,000 soldiers from the war on terror, mostly from Iraq, treated at the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany had "psychiatric or behavioral health issues," according to the commander of the hospital, Col. Rhonda Cornum.

That means about 1,000 soldiers were evacuated for mental problems.

The hospital has treated 11,754 soldiers from the war on terror, with 9,651 from Iraq and the rest from Afghanistan, according to data released by the hospital.

Re: Bush, a punto de rebasar a Nixon como el presidente mas odiado.

Otro senador republicano se opone a política de Bush en Irak

05 de Julio de 2007, 06:26pm ET
WASHINGTON, 5 Jul 2007 (AFP) -

Otro senador republicano se distanció de la política que lleva adelante el presidente estadounidense George W. Bush en Irak este jueves, días antes de que la puja legislativa en torno al conflicto regrese al Congreso.

El senador por Nuevo México, Pete Domeinci, que ha ejercido el cargo por más de tres décadas y busca ser reelegido en 2008, fue el tercer republicano veterano en oponerse públicamente a la estrategia del presidente en los últimos diez días.

"No estoy dispuesto a continuar con nuestra estrategia actual", dijo Domenici en conferencia de prensa en Albuquerque, Nuevo México, donde además culpó al gobierno de Irak de no hacer suficiente progreso para merecer los sacrificios de las tropas estadounidenses.

"No apoyo un retiro inmediato de Irak, ni una reducción del financiamiento para nuestras tropas", aclaró Domenici. "Pero sí apoyo una nueva estrategia que saque a más de nuestros soldados de operaciones de combate y los ponga en camino a casa", aclaró.

Domenici señaló su apoyo a un proyecto de ley presentado en el Senado que busca implementar las conclusiones del Grupo de Estudios para Irak, publicadas a fines de 2006.

La semana pasada, el influyente senador republicano Richard Lugar remeció a Washington al declarar que la política de incremento de tropas no funcionará.

Por su parte, el republicano George Voinovich recomendó un retiro de tropas de Irak.

El Congreso estadounidense regresará de un receso de una semana en los próximos días, y los líderes demócratas buscarán atacar nuevamente la política de guerra de Bush.

Re: Bush, a punto de rebasar a Nixon como el presidente mas odiado.

Nueva semana difícil para Bush de cara a un Congreso cada vez más rebelde

08 de Julio de 2007, 06:06am ET
WASHINGTON, 7 Jul 2007 (AFP) -

El presidente estadounidense George W. Bush deberá enfrentar una nueva semana difícil con un Congreso donde los demócratas quieren atenuar sus poderes presidenciales y donde cada vez más republicanos critican su gestión de la guerra en Irak.

Tras un receso por el aniversario de la Independencia el 4 de julio, los demócratas pueden retomar la ofensiva contra Irak y contra dos asuntos de política interna: el programa de escuchas antiterroristas sin mandato judicial y el controvertido despido de fiscales federales.

Los legisladores se oponen también a una poco popular decisión de Bush de perdonar a Lewis Libby, ex brazo derecho del vicepresidente beep Cheney, condenado a dos años y medio de prisión por mentir a la justicia.

La presidenta demócrata de la Cámara de representantes, Nancy Pelosi, prevé aprobar próximamente un proyecto de ley que autoriza el inicio de un retiro progresivo de tropas de Irak en cuatro meses. Las posibilidades de éxito de este proyecto son de todas formas mínimas, Bush ya vetó una ley similar.







Según fuentes parlamentarias, los senadores Hillary Clinton y Robert Byrd quieren por su parte reducir de manera significativa los poderes de guerra del presidente, al proponer una enmienda a una ley sobre el tema adoptada hace cinco años.

Los demócratas tienen 49 senadores de 100, y pueden en general contar con el voto de diez independientes. Pero para torcer el brazo del presidente son necesarios 60 votos, una cifra que los demócratas no han logrado reunir hasta ahora.

Pero la táctica de erosión de los poderes del presidente ha generado rumores en la base republicana de Bush, que ya ha rechazado apoyarlo en el tema de la reforma migratoria.

El ex presidente de la comisión de asuntos exteriores del Senado, el influyente Richard Lugar, ferviente partidario de la guerra, declaró hace dos semanas que el envío de refuerzos, que incrementó el número de soldados estadounidenses en Irak a alrededor de 160.000, no funcionará.

Otro senador republicano, George Voinovich, llamó a un retiro de tropas.

Desde el jueves, otros tres de sus colegas republicanos, Pete Domenici, Lamar Alexander y Judd Gregg, también han pedido públicamente al presidente cambiar de estrategia.

La Casa Blanca ha minimizado la rebelión de los parlamentarios republicanos, resaltando que pronto se hará un balance de la nueva estrategia. Esta tarea la realizará en setiembre el comandante de las fuerzas estadounidenses en Irak, el general David Petraeus.

Para los demócratas, el tema va más allá de una batalla política contra la Casa Blanca. Ellos controlan el Congreso desde enero, pero sus divisiones y sus tergiversaciones los han llevado a un nivel de popularidad aún menos que el del presidente, según sondeos recientes.

"Están más interesados en liderar las encuestas, las batallas políticas, que en hacer aprobar nuevas leyes", ironizó el jueves el portavoz de la Casa Blanca Scott Stanzel.
