    I received this from a friend in Australia asking if I was at all concerned ...

    Here's the article ...

    Former G.I.'s, Ordered to War, Fight Not to Go
    By MONICA DAVEY




    The Army has encountered resistance from more than 2,000 former soldiers it has ordered back to military work, complicating its efforts to fill gaps in the regular troops.
    Many of these former soldiers - some of whom say they have not trained, held a gun, worn a uniform or even gone for a jog in years - object to being sent to Iraq and Afghanistan now, after they thought they were through with life on active duty.
    They are seeking exemptions, filing court cases or simply failing to report for duty...

    Dude, it's just a message ... my friend was concerned I may be recalled due to my active duty service and he sent this. Don't shoot the messenger.

    There's no doubt that the NYT is biased in many respects, but does that mean it's not a great paper? Even though I hardly ever agree with their editorial page, I still try to read it daily as it basically is one of the most important nationally daily's in the US. It just when the editorialism creeps into the reporting that it becomes a problem...

    Anyway, there is some truth to the story that the US military is severely stretched. Rumsfeld idea of a leaner, smaller military doesn't seem to hold up with the large commitments the US had now in Iraq, Afganistan, and etc. The truth is that the US needs a larger military, but will the ideologues in the Admin allow this?

    Get outta town!

    The Times and the Journal? Every day?

    Doesn't that hurt your cerebral cortex?

    LOL! You there is a famous saying about newspapers:

    -People who think they're in charge read the Washington Post

    -People who think they should be in charge read the New York Times

    -The People who are really in charge read the Wall Street Journal!
