General Schoomaker said the attacks on America in September 2001 and subsequent events had given the US army a rare opportunity to change.

"There is a huge silver lining in this cloud," he said.

"War is a tremendous focus... Now we have this focusing opportunity, and we have the fact that [terrorists] have actually attacked our homeland, which gives it some oomph."

He said it was no use having an army that did nothing but train.

"There's got to be a certain appetite for what the hell we exist for," he said.

"I'm not warmongering, the fact is we're going to be called and really asked to do this stuff."


From BBC News

Scary, huh? Not warmongering? These people will only be happy if the US is in a constant state of war. And if we conquer the world, what next? Why, once enemies foreign are dispatched, they will find enemies domestic. I hope the US electorate comes to its senses in November.
