Who is fighting this war in Iraq?

Comment posted on TPM Cafe on Sunday 4th Sep. 2005

It was shocking to read from the floor statement of Congressman Dennis Kucinich in the US House of Representatives on 2nd September 2005 that the total number of National Guards in Iraq was 78,000!

The United States currently has 140,900 troops in Iraq.

If 78,000 of them are National Guards, then there are only a possible maximum 62,900 US regular combat troops in Iraq.

Remember that many of these would also be no combat troops!

Does it surprise anyone why the US has lost this invasion and occupation of Iraq?
