    Are there plans in that direction?

    Wrong Stan... Afghanistan is the more likely destination.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    there are 'plans' in all directions. we probably have a plan for invading Canada, should it become necessary, sitting on a shelf somewhere.

    but no, Afghanistan will remain the center of effort for a while now. Iran we could defeat but probably not hold.

    Anyone want to start a pool on how long it will be, before we go back in, full bore, with a brand new batch of shavetails, to start all over from scratch?

    Then, when the letters are written to their families, expressing the deepest regrets that their baby died on some far away battlefield, it can be included, "If we had only stayed and done things right, vice giving into someone's political agenda".

    I have a solution to that. Don't go back. It's none of our damn business.

    It was none of our business in 1938, either. How did that turn out?

    Yeah, it was. But back to the point, if Iraq has a civil war, why should we step in?
