Why do anything logically???

I just read an AP article entitled “National Guard Units Face 2nd Tour in Iraq.” There is a quote, talking about the order the military will call up repeat units, that made me chuckle.

“Logic would lead you to go back to the ones that went first, and start going around again,” said Blum. “But that’s probably not exactly how we’ll do it” because the decision will depend partly on what types of units are needed.

I know Blum went on to clarify that it will be based on the needs of the Army but he could have worded his first statement differently and no brought up logic at all.  This just reminds us that logic has no place in today’s military…
