From an article written in December 2003:
Among the less publicized incentives propelling Iraq overseer Paul Bremer's urgent dash to Washington last week was the concern in various quarters of the administration that the U.S. expeditionary force in Iraq is in a dangerously unstable state. "We are one stressed-out reservist away from a massacre," remarked one senior official closely involved in the search for an exit strategy.The soldiers accused of killing civilians are not reservists, but "stressed-out" certainly applies. As M.E. Cohen (no relation) illustrates, it's Physics 101: stretch anything thin enough, it'll snap. (source page)
