It's the best catch there is.

SecDef Robert Gates and Gen. Peter Pace announced today that army deployments in Iraq were being extended from 12 to 15 months.

I'm sure the troops currently approaching their return after 12 months are especially thrilled to get to enjoy another Iraqi summer.

As you may recall, every time that Yossarian, the protagonist of Catch-22 would almost finish the assigned number of missions to fly, Colonel Cathcart would raise the number. Reality does indeed mimic fiction.

When do you think that 18 month deployments will be announced?
