USA – no more troops for Iraq September 16, 2006

Posted by Al in : personal,politics , trackback

It’s been obvious for a while that the US, and it’s allies, will never have the troops to enable them to succeed in Iraq, or Afghanistan for that matter. But the US public, and possibly even their government, have been in a state of denial about this. But when a right wing article such as this is pointing out the obvious, then maybe it’s time the USA woke up and realised that it’s foreign policy is a shambles, as is it’s economic and military policies. Given that the forces who are currently having to do back-to-back tours in Iraq and Afghanistan are more likely to quit the forces, and given that virtually every available military resource is already tied up in these operations somewhere, then it really can’t be long before a national draft is brought into place in the US. I’m glad I’m old and fat, because if the conflicts in the Middle East start to grow, and finally become a war, then a draft may become necessary throughout the western nations, even Britain.
