General Casey says the army needs 3 to 4 years to recover from war

FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) — The Army's top officer said Friday it will take three to four years to put the Army back in balance after seven years of war.

"Right now, the Army is out of balance. We're stretched and stretched by the fact that we didn't have a big enough Army to do the things the nation is asking us to do since Sept. 11," said Gen. George Casey, the Army's chief of staff. "Once you are off track it takes a long time to put it back together."

When you have a 4 star general saying our army needs to recover its probably time to listen. Why we are stretching out troops so thin and wearing them out with 4 and 5 tours of duty for an illegal unconstitutional war boggles my mind.

Why not pull them out and have them actually defend our country? I know that seems like a crazy idea but come on. When is this ridiculous war going to end?
