Andrew Bacevich looks at the strain being placed on the U.S. military by President Bush. This leads Bacevich to argue that "no commander in chief in American history has cared less about the overall health of America's Armed Forces."
It's only fair that I link to Charles Glass's response, in which he argues that
the US should cut all arms sales and military aid to the region. That means withdrawing from Iraq; closing bases in Kuwait, Qatar and Bahrain; ending arms deliveries to the reactionary monarchy in Saudi Arabia; and cutting aid to Israel.
Mr. Glass has his own website, which you can find here.
