Is our military overworked, over-exposed, and under-equipped around the world and at home?


With our military personnel stationed abroad from Okinawa, Japan to Stuttgart, Germany and all the ships at sea, and planes airborne at any given time, not to mention hot fighting in Afghanistan, do you know who they are, where they are, and why they are there? Is Congress really "supporting our troops"? And, does the current president really know what he may be calling on them to do tomorrow with the weapons and equipment already at hand? In a republic that likes to think of itself as a democracy, are you an informed citizen who cares about such questions? What do you do to stay informed?

    What a detailed and scarey comment! Who isn't listening to the military advisors whose expertise is needed? Shame on them! We pay to train the best, reward their experience with leadership positions, and then we ignore their advice at great risk?
