21. Not Just Incompetent
The military brass was purged before the invasion of Iraq. Rumsfeld wanted to make sure that the generals and admirals left were totally loyal to him and to Bush, the American version of Hitler's Generals.

To a man and woman they owe their allegiance to the President, and not to the US Constitution that they all swore to defend. The military brass have left our country undefended and open to attack, the active duty military is being stretched to the breaking point, 40% of the troops on the ground in Iraq are members of the National Guard or reserves, the 2nd ID responsible for defending South Korea is now being sent to Iraq, the 25th ID out of Hawaii now has troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, and in order to make the recruiting quotas the military has lowered the numbers, which is why they keep saying that they are making the cut, and recruiting/retaining the numbers they need.

The military brass that support this pResident are traitors, and in my humble opinion as a former soldier should suffer the fate of traitors as described under English Law. It's the same punishment that William Wallace received, the only difference is that Wallace was a patriot and loyal to his country, and the military brass that
follow along like a bunch of whipped dogs aren't.
