Troop Strength in Iraq

With all due respect to a soldier currently serving in Iraq - can this guy be serious?

His bottom line: we have enough troops there, but too many of them are too busy running 10Ks, swimming in the pool, enjoying cookouts and movies, or taking some college classes to do any real soldiering.

Whu-thu-fuh?

Nothing new there. Complaints about support staff having it easy have existed since Napoleon's time. Napoleon realized that a military is only as effective as its logistics. It's human nature to resent someone getting the same pay but not having as difficult a job.

As always, Bill, great point. You always lend a wiser eye to things.
