Letter to the Editor: a Change in Course

By PAUL G. JAEHNERT

Editor:

So, President Bush has now come to the conclusion that there needs to be a sizable increase in our military forces.

Those skeptics out there, who do not comprehend the complexities of this brilliant military mind, probably don't realize that he has the vision to conceive concepts few others would even dream of.

With his determined and steadfast leadership, nothing is unachievable. Based on the success of his domestic initiatives, think of the possibilities he could come up with for prosecuting the war in Iraq: outsourcing of military operations; privatizing strategic war planning; guest-soldier recruiting; veterans' 'retirement savings accounts' -- the possibilities are endless.

Of course the cost of bringing our military up to the strength levels needed will require countless more billions of dollars.

Not to worry. Our president will solve that problem just as he has with all other appropriations, more tax cuts.
