Strain on America's armed forces has led to calls for permanent
force increases. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that

capabilities at the United States' disposal. This analysis provides
a more complex solution, suggesting that simply providing
additional forces will not fix the problem. Instead, we must
reevaluate how the Army should be composed in the future to
maximize its efficiency and effectiveness.
