<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>`Forces are stretched,' top US general in Iraq says<p><hr></blockquote><p>Bush to Propose Trimming Army Reserve President Bush will use his new budget to propose cutting the size of the Army Reserve to its lowest level in three decades and stripping up to $4 billion from two fighter aircraft programs. Well GD I guess we need to stretch a bit more......<br>because cutting troops will do this......The proposed Army Reserve cut is part of a broader plan to achieve a new balance of troop strength and combat power among the active Army, the National Guard and reserves to fight the global war on terrorism and to defend the homeland. That makes sense....not, but Bush doesn't need to make sense.......... The plan is outlined in the above link....Bush is trying to save money...thats a laugh in itself<br><br><br><br>

Maybe it's just a reality check.<br><br><br>[color:blue]Under the plan, the authorized troop strength of the Army Reserve would drop from 205,000 — the current number of slots it is allowed — to 188,000, the actual number of soldiers it had at the end of 2005. Because of recruiting and other problems, the Army Reserve has been unable to fill its ranks to its authorized level.<br><br>Army leaders have said they are taking a similar approach to shrinking the National Guard. They are proposing to cut that force from its authorized level of 350,000 soldiers to 333,000, the actual number now on the rolls.</font color=blue><br><br><br>If the numbers don't align with the goal, realign the goal.<br><br><br><br><br>[color:blue]And I'm the one that jaded you . . .</font color=blue>

Or Israel about 10 secs before Iran builds their first deployable nuke.<br><br><br>- This is gonna get pretty interesting. <br>- Define "interesting". <br>- Oh, God, oh, God, we're all gonna die..
