Gen. Zinni said that cutbacks in the size of the Navy's fleet during the Clinton years made it necessary to use regional ports for refueling, noting: "Ten years ago, we did all refueling at sea" using Navy oilers.

Yet another reason to elect a socialist democrat. We could elect another Klinton and downsize the entire military force, decommission all our ships, mothball all our tanks and planes, and put the troops to working in national parks and city parks picking up trash and cutting grass and weeds. This would be PERFECT!!! /sarcasm on and hot!

Clinton also spent more on procuring Anthrax vaccine for troops rotating through CENTCOM than he did on Body Armor.

Zinni the Pooh ran CENTCOM.

WhAT? Have you never heard of Posse Comitatis? Not to mention the putting of the "Heart & Soul" (Ilegales) of America out of those jobs? Put the military to work picking up trash in Tehran. That will show Ahmedine-jihad that we mean no harm.

They could have just as easily used a friendly port in the U.A.E. like Jabal Ali, which we used freely during GW1. The more I hear about Zinni, the more I'm glad he's not an active duty Marine general.
