Retired Army Officer Hates America, Writes Love Letter To Terrorists

The News Journal picked up this AP story this morning. I guess that makes them a "liberal" newspaper?

Deployments Stretching Army, Study Finds

WASHINGTON (AP) - Stretched by frequent troop rotations to Iraq and Afghanistan, the Army has become a "thin green line" that could snap unless relief comes soon, according to a study for the Pentagon.

Andrew Krepinevich, a retired Army officer who wrote the report under a Pentagon contract, concluded that the Army cannot sustain the pace of troop deployments to Iraq long enough to break the back of the insurgency. He also suggested that the Pentagon's decision, announced in December, to begin reducing the force in Iraq this year was driven in part by a realization that the Army was overextended.

As evidence, Krepinevich points to the Army's 2005 recruiting slump - missing its recruiting goal for the first time since 1999 - and its decision to offer much bigger enlistment bonuses and other incentives.

"You really begin to wonder just how much stress and strain there is on the Army, how much longer it can continue," he said in an interview.

This sounds pretty bad. I wonder why this guy hates America so much?

BushCo never lets "facts" and "reality" interfere with decision making. So I'm sure this news will have no impact whatsoever.
Well, the "news" part may not have any impact, but the incompetence will have an impact on the grunts on the front line of this undermanned occupation.
Rummy rebutts this immediately, of course, it is in items in the paper today........
The GOPer never fails to the quick draw response...learn DEMs learn!!!
