It’s time to go back on the the offensive.

President Bush delivers a keynote speech on Monday that U.S. officials say will outline a clear strategy for Iraq’s future and show the world he is in command of the situation.

The volatility of Iraq was underlined on Sunday when U.S. forces and Iraqi soldiers launched a major offensive against Shi’ite militiamen, killing about 20 in one raid on a mosque and pounding other positions around the holy city of Najaf.
