I heard on TV this morning that our generals in Iraq have asked for two more brigades (10,000 people) to “provide additional security”. That’ll take our deployment to 140,000 troops. Some of our National Guard troops have been over there for over a year already. Rotations are being canceled. Bonuses offered to NCOs to not retire. Can conscription be far behind?
Whispers abound. Nothing concrete, just whispers. Methinks that if we continue to enlarge our presence in Iraq, there may be no choice.
