Army Plans Still Longer Iraq Tours of Duty

MSNBC story:

The Army is considering whether it will have to extend the combat tours of troops in Iraq if President Bush opts to maintain the recent buildup of forces through spring 2008.

Acting Army Secretary Pete Geren testified Tuesday that the service is reviewing other options, including relying more heavily on Army reservists or Navy and Air Force personnel, so as not to put more pressure on a stretched active-duty force.

civil behavior:

Of course they are considering extending the tours. Exactly what makes anyone think that there are enough warm bodies to splay themselves on the spike of Iraq?

It's pretty obvious the US govt has taken a nation into an abyss from which there is no great solution. Democracy is extinct there and here.

Americans refuse to wake up from their stupor. If only I could sell my house I would be gone forever from this madness.
