Well Mr. Falcon, where were you in 2003 screaming about troop strength?
I was one of the FIRST ONES to question it, CH
. I wondered quite a few times on here that it seemed strange that in the '91 Gulf War, we had half a million troops in theater, simply to throw Iraq out of Kuwait, with no occupation planned, and that we had 3 times fewer troops to occupy the same nation we beat in '91.
, but you don't have to be in the military to figure out something wasn't right, from the beginning, with the number of troops we deployed, and it has been borne out in what is going on today.
Which means what? It was a war game conducted, and that are conducted alll the time, L-188. But again, it shows that Bush did screw up.

I am sure that the GW team went with their studies, not the ones done by their predecessors.
And that may be the most damning statement against the Bush Administration in this whole argument. I have no doubt Bush's team dismissed ANYTHING that came out of the Clinton incumbency out-of-hand, and, in their smug arrogance, figured they knew better. Well, they didn't.
Thanks for driving home that point.
