The US may not be able to fight two big wars at once

WASHINGTON ? The U.S. military would be able to handle itself adequately in a single major regional conflict while maintaining smaller operations around the globe, but its ?marginal? capabilities mean America would struggle if forced to take on a second major conflict at the same time, a new report has found.
