    We have 430 thousands soldiers on active duty in the army and we have at least 230 thousand deployed over seas.
    The enlistment in the army, Army national guard and reserves is way down. We do not have enough men to replace the troops that are there now.
    For every GI in the field there are at least 5 people in support, (doctors,clerks,cooks, and high ranking officers) so we have completely deployed our available manpower Here is a rough estimate of were we are from different media sources
    160,000 Iraq we need at least another 100,000 to give our guys security
    40,000 Korea
    55,000 Japan
    10,000 Afghanistan (should be at least 30,000)
    40,000 Europe
    10,000 Balkans
    We are in serious trouble if anything else starts in the world.
