Open Thread - Abandoning The Troops Edition
If Bush’s surge isn’t breaking the military, then why is the Pentagon:
-extending the tours of duty for 15,000 soldiers just to find warm bodies to maintain it?
-sending mentally wounded troops back to the war?
-calling back another 13,000 National Guard for a yearlong tour at the end of this year?
And why are the Iraqi police and security forces still unwilling to work with us to take on the Mahdi Army, a militia that John McCain says is retreating?
OK, it's your turn.
