More Draft Hints?

On the front page of the Army Times' web site today is this headline:

Myers: Call-ups expected after election

That particular story is blocked except to subscribers, but it lends further credence that the military manning levels are currently inadequate for the current OPTEMPO. The Guard is nearly tapped out and will likely be unable to meet their recruiting goals. The Reserve and Ready Reserve have already had multiple, targeted call-ups. So where do the services get the people they need?

And notice, because Army Times is not "mainstream," perhaps Gen. Myers didn't feel the need to filter out that part about not doing it until "after [the] election."

Anyone out there with a subscription to Army Times want to let us know what this article has to say?
