I dont think Rumsfeld was the only one that thought this war would be quicker and simpler. It says at the end of the article that there are 125,000 US
and British troops are in Iraq, I thought the number was closer to 250,000. Maybe the other 100,000 are in Kuwait or in the Persian Gulf on ships or
whatever, I dont know if they mean technically in Iraq or not.
They mention also that much of the supply of Tomahawk cruise missiles has been expended, aircraft carriers were going to run out of precision guided
bombs and there were serious maintenance problems with tanks, armored vehicles and other equipment. Even if that is the case, do they really want to
make that public? Wouldn't that be helpful, if not comforting to the enemy?
