Obama today: "Top military officials told Congress that if Congress does nothing to stop sequestration, there could be serious consequences for our national security, at a time when our military is stretched on a whole range of issues."

Our military is stretched? How so? We were in Afghanistan and Iraq for a decade--then they were stretched with ridiculously frequent tours of duty. If Obama has ended the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, how could our forces possibly be stretched?  Unless we are engaged in war in far more many places than the White House admits. If this makes sense to you, please explain it to me.
