Where are our Defense Dollars Going?

Are we facing a troop shortage?

As you know, Elephant continues to question the readiness of our armed forces in light on the continued extended tours of the men and the women on the ground in Iraq and Afganistan. The U.S. defense posture calls on the United States to be able to fight two regional wars on opposite sides of the globe simultaneously. (e.g.- Iraq and N. Korea). But it continues to confound me that we seem only able to send roughly 130,000 troops to a region and must keep them their indefinitely.

Does this weaken our position as we confront Iran and N. Korea on nukes?

Is this the rationale for what looks like the U.S. caving to N. Korea demands?

Just asking.

Army to recall former military members
