WASHINGTON, Oct. 29 (UPI) -- The daily fatalities in Iraq are reportedly beginning to frustrate President Bush's Republican supporters.
Sen. Trent Lott, R-Miss., told The Hill newspaper Wednesday: "Honestly, it's a little tougher than I thought it was going to be. If we have to, we just mow the whole place down, see what happens. You're dealing with insane suicide bombers who are killing our people, and we need to be very aggressive in taking them out."
Although no other GOP lawmakers have endorsed Lott's proposal to "mow the whole place down," The Hill said frustration is increasing.
Earlier, Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., said he was concerned U.S. forces were unable to anticipate many of the attacks in a situation he described as tantamount to a guerrilla war.
Said Roberts: "I can tell you, I'm very worried about the lack of pertinent intelligence to fight that kind of a war. It appears we have some real problems."
