Just Asking....

The Elephant likes value for his money. What boggles my mind is that we spend $400 + billion dollars a year on national defense, but we only seem to be able to send 130,000 troops to Iraq. To keep that number stable, we keep extending their stay. Now USAToday is reporting that we'll be sending 1/3 of our troops from South Korea to Iraq. Uhhmmm...last time I checked, Dear Leader had killed millions and is reported to have nuclear weapons (Although if it's a CIA report..who knows).

Isn't our national defense posture supposed to be that the United States should be able to fight two regional conflicts simultaneously? The elephant has many, many questions on where our defense dollars are going. Certainly not into keeping a decent sized fighting force.
