A Few More Idiocies
Demagoguery has reached a new high in
We have 15 Brit sailors captured by the Iranians on the high seas, which in other times would be cause for war. We have attacks on US and Iraqi soldiers from across the Iranian/Iraqi border, followed by Iranian shelling of our disengaging troops for miles inside
As also predicted, more troops have been asked for, this time about 3,000. Do this for eight months in a row and a whole new division of 24,000 troops will be in
There are only a few ways to reduce the strain on our troop levels. The most obvious is a draft, but that would have to be the result of a major Iranian misstep against us. Remember who sits in Congress—a majority of pacifists. Any prudent government would have us on a more sensible war footing now.
