116. Afghan 30,000 needed, Iraq an extra 100,000, plus the re-enlistments
are way down.

Sounds to me like they will need to draft close to 200,000 in 2005. That's just to stabilize Iraq and the Afghans.

Come to think of it, they will probably let both Iraq and Afghanistan go to hell until the eleciton is over and then gear up for a 2005 offensive to take Saddam's underground city in the Wadi region and take back the parts of Afghanistan we will have certainly lost by then.

That would be the politically safer plan. Rove told the RNC: "No War in '04!" (Meaning Katie Bar the Door in '05)
