Democratic Presidential candidate John Kerry must really think he's the Magic Man. First he plans to magically turn Iraq into a NATO operation when NATO can't even fully commit to Afghanistan. Then he pledges to expand the ranks of active duty troops available for deployment to Iraq by 40,000 through the magic of advertising.
Kerry Seeks Doubling of US Special Forces
. . .
The new special forces units would be part of a 40,000-troop expansion that Kerry called for last year and would come about through more aggressive recruiting, aides said, although there would be no new financial incentives to help the military fill its ranks. The new troops would not lead to more forces in Iraq or Afghanistan, Kerry said; they would replace troops, reservists, and guardsmen who have been on extended duty there. There are now 49,000 active, reserve, and Guard special-operations forces; Kerry's plan would add another 3,500 to 4,000 active-duty special forces.
Maybe he's available for children's birthday parties, too.
