Government officials say President Bush wants to increase overall military strength by about 70,000 troops. Where would they come from in the first place? And where would their replacements come from, as they are either killed, wounded, or discharged? "Be All You Can Be with Crappy Equipment" would not seem to be a great recruiting slogan.
Would Bush consider paying for the new troops more important than preserving his tax breaks for the rich or would he just let the deficit grow and grow until the country is destroyed through financial mismanagement while troops are fighting and dying overseas to protect it from enemies we have helped create?
