And coming out with some interesting figures. He was stateing that for infantry battalions the average length between tours in 18 months. I find this hard to belive. As fo other arms he could only stste that it was 'A bit shorter than that', without allowing himself to actually say 'Well other arms are often doing 6 months on and 6 months off until hell freezes over' He also said that the cuts; sorry 'Enhancements', were so that all units had their time between tours increased. Surely the easy solution to this would be to recruit more personell for other arms? But this goes agianst the Dear Leaders and his cheif bean counters wishes as they need to savings to pay for day centers and extra benefits for one legged lesbian gerbils. New Zealand here I come methinks.
