Army's chief of staff Gen. Ray Odierno told a Washington conference Monday that the U.S. Army had not conducted any training in the last six months of the fiscal year ending Sept. 30. And, he said, there currently are only two Army brigades rated combat-ready. That's a total of between 7,000 to 10,000 troops and less than one-third what the combat veteran regards as necessary for proper national security.That's roughly one-third of the troops we would need to merely defend our own borders. But we have money to waste on 404Care and closing down national monuments?
"Right now," Odierno said, "we have in the Army two brigades that are trained. That's it. Two."
Burn it down. Scatter the stones, salt the ground then take off and nuke it from orbit.
