Subj: IS SOMETHING UP?
The standard DoD announcement attached below could be big news. DoD is increasing the number of Reserve and National Guard on Active Duty; it is up more than 30,000 in the past few weeks. This verifies the regular Active Duty is spread way too thin due to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. And, this could be a sign that the Bush Administration is building up for another invasion somewhere by resting Active Duty troops before a major attack (and placing Guard/Reserve in their place). Look out for your new "September Surprise" - - - Karl Rove has rewritten the political calendar.

National Guard and Reserve Mobilized as of January 7, 2004
This week the Army reports an increase in the number of reservists on active duty in support of the partial mobilization. The Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps all report a decrease. The net collective result is 10,213 more reservists than last week.
At any given time, services may mobilize some units and individuals while demobilizing others, making it possible for these figures to either increase or decrease. Total number currently on active duty in support of the partial mobilization for the Army National Guard and Army Reserve is 164,847; Naval Reserve 1,491; Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve, 19,942; Marine Corps Reserve, 6,515; and the Coast Guard Reserve, 1,164. This brings the total National Guard and Reserve on active duty to 193,959 including both units and individual augmentees.
