Open Thread - Abandoning The Troops Edition

by Steve

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.
