Extended Buildup Would Exhaust US Forces

Sapped by nearly six years of war, the Army has nearly exhausted its fighting force and its options if the Bush administration decides to extend the Iraq buildup beyond next spring.

When asked what units will fill the void in the coming spring if any need to be replaced, officials give a grim shake of the head, shrug of the shoulders or a palms-up, empty-handed gesture.

----What?! Sapped, shrugs, palms-up, empty-handed. I got your grim palm - bitchslaps for the ruling "opposition" class for using deliberate gestures of "we dunno, we failures" to gradually ease out of the mess they helped create. And how stupid does one have to be to believe we'll attack Iran when we can't even make progress in Iraq?

If you're not a regular reader, I am antiwar and believe wars are staged for the benefit of a few. I also believe and taught my children - careful what you choose to begin, finish what you start, to the best of your ability and with results that don't shame you.

May there be a big whopping pox-o-shame on the 80% of polled American lemmings who supported BushCo and were barking for blood post 9/11, as if they personally knew all the WTC dead.

Especially the Heartland lemmings who didn't giveashit about yuppie New Yorkers but thought kicking ass somewhere would relieve their petty personal misery. The same lemmings who now believe, after a few sound bytes, that "bring the troops home" will lower gas prices, create social lemming programs; create jobs, will save the economy, will bring good will and respect from the rest of the world; it will work miracles and shit cucumbers.

If US politicians, corporate suits, and military brass would stop jocksucking the new world order we would see progress in Iraq, but apparently - success is not an option.
