PNAC Calls For More Troops

While the US military continues to miss its recruiting goals (even after lowering their expectations once already), the PNAC thinktank - a group that could be said to pull some weight in Washington - is recommending an increase in troop levels of 25,000/year for the "next several years". How this is to be accomplished remains to be seen. I'll stop short of saying the "D" word, but would respectfully suggest that increasing the compensation of the men in the field (such that they can actually support a family back home) and leaving absolutely no fuckin' doubt that they've got the very best equipment that the military can provide would go a long ways towards increasing one's willingness to enlist.
