Ohio gov. fears for Guard member safety

Ohio's governor said Tuesday he is worried that National Guard troops who have been told to prepare for a possible deployment to Iraq won't have proper training and equipment.

"These men and women are going to be paying the price, I think, for failure to adequately plan, to predict, and it troubles me," Gov. Ted Strickland told National Public Radio's "Morning Edition".


He called on the Bush administration to take steps to assure that the soldiers are properly trained and given the most up-to-date body armor, night-vision goggles and weapons.

"I want to make sure that the soldiers who leave Ohio to go to the war zone have been given every advantage they need in order to be safe," he said.

Good start.

But Strickland and the other 49 Governors need to make a firm stand and DEMAND that their National Guardsmen & women MUST BE "given every advantage they need in order to be safe".

The National Guard is a STATE ASSET, unless Mr Bush wants to pull the Posse Comitatus Act. C'mon Governors!! Let's get some spine.

Unfortunatley "My Man Mitch" would never THINK of telling Mr Bush what to do.
