Thoughts on the military and military activities of a diverse nature. Free-ranging and eclectic.

Just read the book "Minutemen" by Gary Hart. Pretty interesting. He proposes that we reduce the active military to about 500,000, and grow the guard and reserve. This was written before 911 and our extensive current deployments.

I don't agree with him. I am a big advocate of a strong guard and reserve, but the world is a dangerous place, and we need a big capable active force.
