US Army Near Breaking Point
According to a new report, the Army has become a “thin green line” that could snap if relief doesn’t come quickly. And I say these hippie-dippie peaceniks who created this report can take their terrorist-loving America-hating asses back to the Pentagon.

He said “you really begin to wonder just how much stress and strain there is on the Army, how much longer it can continue.”
In one chapter of his report, he wrote that the Army is “in a race against time” to adjust to the demands of war “or risk ‘breaking’ the force in the form of a catastrophic decline” in recruitment and re-enlistment.
The Army fell short of its recruiting goals for 2005, and that’s in spite of raising the maximum enlistment age and taking on more and more drug addicts, high school dropouts and people with criminal records.
