  1. Yeah, except there is nothing behind those arrows. The Army has its hands full in Iraq. That’s part of the problem. We have no credible threat against Iran on the continuum between nuclear bombardment and nothing.

  2. Nonsense. Our entire force in country doesn’t have to keep babysitting Iraq if a more important mission comes up, such as stopping Iran from getting nukes.

    And there’s some forces in Europe that can be retasked as well.

    And, while we’re at it, maybe, just maybe, we should finally boost those enlistment caps.

  3. Re: boosting the enlistment caps, I agree completely. Bush needs to start pushing for this hard and fast, as well as additional funding for basic training and equipment.

    But as it stands right now, invading Iran would be a disaster. No way should we do that until Iraq is more under control, and even then I don’t know if we want to try this all over again just yet.

    I say funnel as much aid as we can to Iranian dissidents, meanwhile trying to incentivize them away from the Bomb. I know that second part is easier said than done, but I really do not think an invasion is desirable at this point.
