NotSo you still think the Iraqi invasion made us safer? Think again:
WASHINGTON - More than two-thirds of the Army National Guard's 34 brigades are not combat ready, mostly because of equipment shortages that will cost up to $21 billion to correct, the top National Guard general said Tuesday.As the Bush cabal pours billions into Iraq, our military is unable to do a 100% job here because there's no money left for them do so.
Feel safer now?
