Interesting Focus

Everyone is talking about the "surge."

I find it interesting that in these three pieces by Andrew Sullivan, Keane and Kagan, and John Keegan, only the last one seems to be concerend about the practicalities of maintaining high troop levels; that is, do we have enough troops. According to the article, we do, but the article does not seem to suggest that we can maintain an increased force level for very long.

But it strikes me that few people seem to want to consider that there may be limits to our military power beyond our willingness to use it.

That is all.
