    surge

    Hi, teachers,
    I found this sentence on ABC website,
    Barely a quarter of Iraqis say their security has improved in the past six months, a negative assessment of the surge in U.S. forces that reflects worsening public attitudes across a range of measures, even as authorities report some progress curtailing violence.
    Could you please tell me how to digest it?
    Thanks and regards!

    Re: surge

    Only about 25% of Iraqis said that they felt that their security was in better now than it was six months ago. This is not a good thing, when you remember that the U.S. forces increased the number of soliders six months ago. In fact, it shows that the public has a lower and lower opinion on a number of topics, even though officials say that there is less violence now.
