Americ Increases troops to 130,000

The US is not as touted pulling out just yet

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2006/07/29/wirq29.xml

So what does that mean for UK troops and troop levels?


The US is contemplating returning to conscription as retention bonuses are not enoughto keep troops who have been lied to so many times.


A few US personnel having said that even their Drill Instructors are had pushed with the quality of the troops coming into the "dog food factory"

bad move, it will drive american away on a long "holiday" somewhere to avoid it like during Vietnam when many Young Americans went to Canada to avoid the draft,
i believe Canada has now closed that loophole, the quality of troops will fall.

The whole story sort of gives a lie to all the upbeat announcements by Phoney Tony, Bush the Bewildered and all the rest of the liars that the situation in Eye-rack is improving all the time.

Once the Septics introduce conscription, I wonder how long it'll take before we see Vietnam-style demonstrations from the general populace there.

Interesting times.
