Bush's Wars, now Obama's, have pretty much taken a back seat to the economy, repossessed homes, lost jobs, swine flu maybe becoming a pandemic, possible forced vaccinations, etc. etc. and people have too much to worry about to fret about the wars. But It ain't over and our military are still dying or getting wounded. So they're going to start bringing them home. Yeh--after they send and keep on sending them to Afghanistan and other hot spots on the globe instead of home to the US. Oh yeh, they'll send SOME home so people can see "our troops are coming home" but more will be transferred to hot spots.
The U.S. must keep up its efforts to be Master of the World, the Military Industrial Complex must keep on raking in billions and mega corps like Haliburton et al also must maintain their billions in profits from wars.... and the OIL, ofcourse.
But people, don't forget the sons and daughters of America dying and wounded for money and power of the above.
