You know, and readers of this blog know, I understand that the job needs to be done.
The President says that the generals need to increase troop strength by 20,000.
But I also understand that there are over 1,400,000 active duty soldiers in our armed forces, with around 190,000 of them who are currently in Iraq and Afghanistan.
That leaves a lot of active duty folks who could pick up the slack
What the hell are they still doing in Germany?
Again, I know the job needs to be done, and I understand that.
But it still sucks.
