Who can blame them?  Our troops are realizing that President Bush does not have a plan to end the conflict in Iraq.  With growing casualties, who would want to be next? 


The Bush administration is now going a step further, threatening troops to re-enlist.  Soldiers based at Fort Carson, near Colorado Springs, have reported being threatened and coerced to re-enlist. Members of the “”3rd Brigade Combat Team nearing the end of their duty were told they faced re-assignment to units expected to be deployed to Iraq or South Korea unless they re-enlisted at the end of the month or extended their duty until the end of 2007.“” 


Representative Diana DeGette is now calling for a congressional investigation to look into the issue.  She indicated that the Department of Defence “”…can’t meet re-enlistment goals, so they’re putting this hammer over their head, which is just wrong.“”
