Such as now.
What will be China's first target, which section of the US' soft underbelly?

First the Economy, then the US Standing in the world, creating a separation of the US and it's allies, Then devalue the dollar, then remove the dollar as the world currency, then devalue the dollar more, .... then we fall under our own debt.

sound familiar.. that is what happened in ~500 AD to rome.

Rome ran of money to by off the huns, Goths, etc.. they could not field a military.. they lost their 10th army and never replaced it (this is the army that was to fend of the Germaic tribes (Attila) at the Battle of Adrianople

I responded to the post that said High Ranking officers, to me that would be Generals, and Majors and above.

Indeed, you ignored this:

I just calculated that ratio... based on the numbers offered in the post..

197 would be 1 for every 10 days based 5 years in office (which really would not be completed until Jan 19, 2014.

I did not have a list, I just based it on the information provided in a members post. If that post is incorrect that could be the case, I just did not question it, I just rechecked the math.

someone also said he had been in office almost 6 years, No it is almost 5 years not 6..

I realize you are just kibitzing but I have to explain a bit about military ranks to you. Pay grades are numbered E1 - E10 for enlisted and O1-O11 for officers. A major (LCDR in the Navy) is an O4. This is the lowest level of field grade officer. The field grade is O4-O6, that is Major, LTC and Colonel. The flag grade officers are all generals of one sort or another (unless they are Admirals of one sort or another). When a person with a military background speaks of "high ranking" or "senior" officers they are most usually speaking of O6 and above. Light birds and below are a dime a dozen, so to speak.

For what it is worth.
Thanks from Camelot

George W. Bush - AWOL from Supporting our Troops

Between tax cuts for the rich, war profits for Halliburton, or support for our troops - which did the Bush Administration choose, time and time again?


Bush Administration cuts $1.5 billion from military family housing. The Bush Administration cut $1.5 billion for military family housing, despite Department of Defense statistics showing that in 83,000 barracks and 128,860 family housing units across the country are below standard. ("Nothing But Lip Service," Army Times, June 30, 2003; "House Appropriations Committee Approves $59.2 Million for Ft. Hood," U.S. Rep. Chet Edwards Press Release, June 17, 2003)

Bush Republicans support millionaires instead of military veterans. Bush allies in Congress stopped efforts to scale back the tax cut for the nation's millionaires by just five percent - a loss of just $4,780 for the year - in order to restore this funding for military family housing. ("The Tax Debate Nobody Hears About," Washington Post, June 17, 2003)

Bush Administration underfunded veterans' health care by $2 billion. The Bush Administration's 2004 budget underfunded veterans' health care by nearly $2 billion. ("Vets Health Low on Bush's Priority List," The Hill, September 17, 2003; "Support for Troops Questioned," Washington Post, June 17, 2003; U.S. Department of Veterans' Affairs, September 2002)

Bush Administration proposal would end health care benefits for 173,000 veterans. More than 173,000 veterans across the country would be cut off from health care because of Bush Administration proposed budget cuts and its plan requiring enrollment fees and higher out-of-pocket costs. ("Support for Troops Questioned," Washington Post, June 17, 2003)

Bush Administration budget cuts force more than 200,000 veterans to wait for health care. Over 200,000 United States veterans have to wait more than six months for a medical visit because of health care shortages. ("VA Health Care Funding Alert," Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States Press Release, January 31, 2003)

Bush Administration opposed plan to give National Guard and Reserve Members access to health insurance. Despite the war efforts of America's National Guard and Reserve Members, the Bush Administration announced in October 2003 its formal opposition to give the 1.2 million Guard and Reserve members the right to buy health care coverage through the Pentagon's health plan. One out of every five Guard members lacks health insurance. ("Bush Opposes Health Plan for National Guard," Gannett News Service, October 23, 2003)

Bush Administration cuts $172 million allotted for educating the children of military personnel. The Bush Administration's 2004 budget cut $172 million of impact aid funding. Impact aid funding assists school districts by making up for lost local tax revenue from tax-exempt property, such as military bases. These education cuts will especially affect school-age children of troops serving in Iraq who reside on military bases. ("Support for Troops Questioned," Washington Post, June 17, 2003)

Bush Administration tax cut denies military families increase in child tax credit. The families of 262,000 children of military personnel do not receive the child tax credit increase because the plan fails to cover taxpaying families with incomes between $10,500 and $26,625. According to The Washington Post, the House version of the Bush Administration plan "wouldn't help many of those serving in Iraq." One solider who will not benefit is Army Specialist Shoshana Johnson, the soldier and single mother who was wounded twice in the same convoy as Jessica Lynch. ("Ex-POW's Family Accuses Army of Double Standard on Benefit," Washington Post, October 24, 2003; "The New Senate Child Credit Legislation - What It Does and Does Not Do," Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, June 25, 2003; "Whose Child Is Left Behind," Children's Defense Fund, July 23, 2003)
