This article focuses on the plan of U.S. President George W. Bush to deploy more troops in Iraq to stop violence. Families of soldiers who are serving a tour of duty in Iraq have been paying close attention to what is happening in Iraq. Since the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003, more than 3,000 U.S. soldiers there have been killed. Many people describe what is happening in Iraq as a civil war between two religious groups, Sunni and Shia Muslims.
