National Guard

Bush, Rumsfeld and the rest of the neocon nitwits have been using the National Guard and Reserve components of the military at levels not seen since World War II. This should not surprise anyone because Clinton used the Guard and Reserve at levels not seen since Vietnam at least and it was obvious to anyone watching the drawdown in the military under Clinton that large scale use of the Guard would be essential in any large scale military endeavor because there simply were not enough bodies in the active duty components of the military to cover.

For more information on the use of the Guard and its potential ramifications see Bill Moyer's Now. It makes for some interesting reading.
