    if anyone reads Col. Hackworth's commentary on our military
lack of needed combat strength, it should scare the "hell" out of
them. (When Clinton walked past our lined up armor in his visit
to Korea, at least half of them were out of commission.)

   Folks are "whistling past our national graveyard" if they
believe we are at full military strength.
