 An Analysis of the U.S. Military's Ability to Sustain an Occupation in Iraq
In examining the occupation of Iraq, CBO used brigade-sized maneuver units--brigade combat teams (BCTs) for the Army and Marine expeditionary brigades (MEBs) for the Marine Corps--as the primary unit of analysis.
That would be enough units to raise the size of the occupation that could be sustained in Iraq by 9,000 to 11,000 military personnel--equivalent to ⅔ to 1 combat brigade (see Table 10).
The size of the occupation force that could be sustained using individual rotations to units stationed in Iraq--assuming equivalent time away from home--would be roughly the same as the size of the force that could be sustained by rotating units.
