Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.
Support The Jaker

A question to ponder: how long can we sustain a dominant all-volunteer military while fighting wars like Iraq. The last war that attracted this kind of scrutiny of its purpose and implementation was Vietnam, but that Army was predominantly drafted. As recruiting continues to fall short of goals, (the latest service to miss is the Marines), it's no wonder that retired, and even some active, generals are being critical of Bush and Rumsfeld.
