    I didn't "hope for" anything. Not if hope implies admitting the possibility of some positive outcome. I never anticipated one.
    idk really im sure everyone hoped for the troops i mean literally everyone to come back home and to stay over here... back at home with families.

    Surely no one was naive enough to expect that we could go to war and not lose a single troop.
    That would be pretty silly.
    I mean, I think the more accurate term for that would be "wish", rather than "hope".
    I wish I'd grow wings and be able to fly, but I have no expectation that I will; no hope that I will.

    I also hope every week I win the lottery.
    Unfortunately, reality interceeds.
