Is the "surge" more about Iran than Iraq?

Post-GW speech, it seems as if many a blogger has written as much about Iran as they have about Iraq. Iran was a key mention in the speech and we do have raids in the news.

I tend to agree that perhaps Bush’s "surge” plan in reality is a move to get more troops in the region, esp. given the story I wrote about a few days ago regarding Israel, apparently set and ready to take out Iran’s uranium facilities. Such a strike would clearly result in fairly massive geopolitical disruption / fallout in that entire part of the world. I can't imagine this fact being lost on Cheney -- uh, I mean Bush.

Scary times indeed.
