Still the more troops we waste in Iraq, the less troops we have for a different conflict
you do realize that there are 120k troops in Iraq (somewhere around there) and that the US military has a reported size of 750K? If North Korea attacked (with what? canoes? they lack navy vessels) i'm pretty sure the most powerful army in the world would be able to fight them off. Not to mention that we also have people called allies, who, even if they don't necessarily agree with our policies would still protect us and vice versa.
