This is How the two parties of the apocalypse “Support the Troops”…
To follow up yesterdays post concerning the GAO report on waste, fraud and abuse in pentagon new weapons procurement, I deal today with this clip from the washington post:
Heavy Troop Deployments Are Called Major Risk
Readiness Is Dangerously Low, Army Chief Says
Washington Post Staff Writer
Wednesday, April 2, 2008
Senior Army and Marine Corps leaders said yesterday that the increase of more than 30,000 troops in Iraq and Afghanistan has put unsustainable levels of stress on U.S. ground forces and has put their readiness to fight other conflicts at the lowest level in years.
In a stark assessment a week before Gen. David H. Petraeus, the top U.S. commander in Iraq, is to testify on the war’s progress, Gen. Richard A. Cody, the Army’s vice chief of staff, said that the heavy deployments are inflicting “incredible stress” on soldiers and families and that they pose “a significant risk” to the nation’s all-volunteer military.
“When the five-brigade surge went in . . . that took all the stroke out of the shock absorbers for the United States Army,” Cody testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee‘s readiness panel.
He said that even if five brigades are pulled out of Iraq by July, as planned, it would take some time before the Army could return to 12-month tours for soldiers. Petraeus is expected to call for a pause in further troop reductions to assess their impact on security in Iraq.
WTF!?!? So the labushanostra poor mans patton (petraeus) is calling for a continuing “surge.” What the hell happened? SONOFABUSH! I thought this guy was supposed to be a military genius. I thought he was gonna roll into Baghdad the way patton rolled into Sicily. HE WAS SUPPOSED TO WIN THIS ONE FOR THE GIPPER! The only exit strategy petraeus has involves rotating himself out to a big money book deal, while he leaves more boots on the ground then when he went in! SONOFABUSH!!!!! As a result of this ongoing leadership failure, our young people in uniform will be doing longer tours of duty and more of em! SONOFABUSH!!!!!!!!!!!!
Does anyone have an EXIT STRATEGY?
