Military Tells Bush of Troop Strains


apnews.myway.com

Behind the Pentagon's closed doors, U.S. military leaders told President Bush Wednesday they are worried about the Iraq war's mounting strain on troops and their families. But they indicated they'd go along with a brief halt in pulling out troops this summer.

The Joint Chiefs of Staff did say senior commanders in Iraq should make more frequent assessments of security conditions, an idea that appeared aimed at increasing pressure for more rapid troop reductions.

Will Bush listen to his top generals? Or will he ignore them like Cheney and McCain?

It seems our politicians have proven time and time again that they do not care about our troops. If they had any compassion for them and their families, they'd bring them home (5 years too late).


The chiefs' concern is that U.S. forces are being worn thin, compromising the Pentagon's ability to handle crises elsewhere in the world.


When we have bases in over 100 countries and 2 active military conflicts, (that we know of) you'd think our leaders would not be so arrogant. The potential for an attack of US citizens has increased tenfold as a result of our foreign incursions.

Our soldiers are being killed daily. Those who do make it home, receive subpar medical treatment and suffer through PTSD and worse.

I just hope the rest of America sees that we are not fighting for freedom. We are occupying a foreign nation.
