Is the U.S. Military a Broken Force?

At, there's an AP article about it

Sapped by nearly six years of war, the Army has nearly exhausted its fighting force and its options if the Bush administration decides to extend the Iraq buildup beyond next spring.

I'm not saying it is or it isn't.

What I'd like to explore is whether or not someone can track for how long the media has been reporting that "our military is broken".  i'm pretty sure that the press, Charlie Rangel, and others thought it was broken years ago.  Anyone want to look into it?
