FINALLY! the announcement so many of us have waited for has arrived. as he pointed out, correctly, its time to do nation building here at home. lets not forget who to thank for this decade-long war, George W Bush. the number of troops leaving is much more than the pentagon wanted. TOO DAMN BAD!!! some small amount of :biggrin1:sanity has returned to the defense dept. thank you Mr. president, Mr. vice -president and Secretary of defense (as of next week) Leon Panetta.
