From Holden:

The Pentagon is planning to send an additional 20,000 troops to Iraq. Wonder where they are gonna get ’em?

US officials are considering raising the number of American troops in Iraq by more than 20,000.

They are concerned they won’t get enough new troops from allies to help provide security for Iraqi elections in January.

The goal is to raise the number of troops in Iraq from 138,000 to 160,000.
