 Project on Defense Alternatives - Build-Down: US Armed Forces Retrenchment in the Context of Modernization
In light of current and planned modernization efforts it is a mistake to describe the current process of armed forces transition as a "draw-down." The process is one of "build-down," involving the trimming away of the older, less capable portions of America's armed forces while multiplying the capabilities of the force that remains.
Contrary to expectation the BUR increases the proportion of ground forces -- US Army and Marine Corps -- in the all-service active-duty mix, from 45.8 percent in 1990 to 46 percent.

 US bases in Iraq: sticky politics, hard math | csmonitor.com
US Army planners are preparing to maintain the current level of forces in Iraq at least through 2007, The New York Times reported this week.
At an April 2003 press conference, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said any suggestion that the US is planning a permanent military presence in Iraq is "inaccurate and unfortunate." With the presidential election weeks away, he is unlikely to alter that pronouncement on such a politically touchy matter.
Also, withdrawal of US forces would be seen by Iraqi insurgents as a victory, prompting them to redouble their efforts to kill Americans, says Thomas Donnelly, a military expert at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington.
