Right, let's just have every American, regardless or age, sex, or number of limbs pick up an M-16 and go to the Middle East, would that be a large
enough army for you warmongers? Or would you like to start kidnaping people from other countries and forcing them into your army too?
The reason that more troops are needed in Iraq is because of poor planning on the part of the Bush Administration, and Bush's total lack of basic
Now I agree with the French, Germans and Chinese that the war in Iraq was a terrible idea in the first place, but if Bush and his cronies had listened
to the experts in the first place, America wouldn't be in this mess.
As for having a 16,000,000 person standing army, what planet are you from? You think the American's debt is out of control now, try just feeding and
paying 16 million people, let alone arming them or deploying them anywhere.
America was such a powerhouse in WWII because FDR nationalized the entire American economy. The United States was a Socialist nation with a command
economy for the duration of the war! It's insane to think that something like that could be passed in America today, and even if it could it
wouldn't help you win the war.
Merge the CIA, NSA, and FBI that would be real progress. Hire more spies and get some insiders that would help too, but this war isn't one that
America can spend or muscle their way out of. Time to drop the macho mentality, stop trying to beat em with testosterone and use your damn brains.
Even more than more spies, more than more intel, and far more than more men with guns the United States needs to win the hearts and minds of the
general population in the Middle East. Stop the source of new terrorists, get the people on your side, and you win the war. No nukes, dasycutters
or MOABS required.
May Peace Travel With You
