A U.S. Senator from Kentucky continues to back the president, despite a fallout from other Republicans .
U.S. Senator Jim Bunning said President Bush's troop build-up in Iraq should be given a chance. Bunning said he would not support a proposal, putting U.S. troops on track to leave in early 2008. Bunning believes if American forces leave Iraq there would be chaos, civil war and Iran dominating the Middle East. However, Bunning did acknowledge Congress's patience over the war is about at the end.
