The Army Now

Joseph L. Galloway, a senior military columnist for the Knight-Ridder Newspapers, has an opinion on how the Army is doing.
In that early fall two years ago, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld was still running victory laps and the words of his boss, President George W. Bush, were still ringing: "Bring `em on!"

Sadly, those two were, and still are, in charge.

Now they've broken the Army, and after this administration is history, it will take 12 or 15 or 20 years to repair the damage it's inflicted on an institution that our country desperately needs in a century as dangerous as this one.
He goes on. I find him pretty convincing, myself, but of course there are those who are more hung up on the fact that Clinton didn't provide enough bullets so people could go to the range each weak.
