Iraq, Afghan conflicts strain U.S. fighting power.

Note the number of troops in Iraq are nearly 8 times the number in Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, the nonpartisan GAO has concluded "that bureaucratic delays within the Army had delayed release of funds to buy several items, including vehicle armor." Recall that $9 billion remains unaccounted for in Iraq; just imagine how much vehicle armor $9 bil. could've purchased.
