John K. says: And it worked. Check the lead editorial in the Washington Post. We are winning. And now it is up to people like you to snatch that victory from us. After all, your entire line has been invested in defeat. You can't tolerate victory.

If it worked, we'd be home. We are not home.

Twisted reply, as usual.

John K. says: Stupid reply, "we are not home." Duhhhhh Stick to swimming because you know squat about foreign policy and less about military actions.

John K. also says: Besides why would you want the Army home? Need the free labor to clean the storm drains or pick up the trash in the street? After all, that is your opinion of the Army.

Is it is much better to have the US Army abroad in Iraq and Afghanistan doing clean up work for the next 100 years?

Meanwhile, in China, an earthquake hits. About 100,000 die. With the mess and decomposition of the bodies -- the totals could EASILY hit 1-Million or more. The RED Army is home, eating home cooking, and saving the lives, in a month, of 1-M plus.

How about if Katrina hit again and a major city or region was wiped out. The capacity of the U.S.A. forces are s t r e t c h e d way tooooo thin to make a reaction to any domestic threat.

FEMA is the best we've got. That isn't saying much.

Even if we had private contractors, say Haliburton, the FEDs don't have the cash to pay for even the mobilization given today's fuel costs.
