The Bush White House has repeatedly said that the US military hasn't been stretched too thin by the war in Iraq. That appears to be a false assertion.
Boosting U.S. troop levels in Iraq by 21,500 would create major logistical hurdles for the Army and Marine Corps, which are short thousands of vehicles, armor kits and other equipment needed to supply the extra forces, U.S. officials said.
It seems that Bush will be sending GIs into war without sufficient levels of equipment. So who's supporting the troops?
Add another 38,000 barely-equipped troops and personnel to the 21,500.... Horrifically, Bush is seemingly just throwing more wood on the already-blazing bonfire.
