    They Dems will keep their promise to remove troops from Iraq, but they will just send us over to Afghanistan. No one is coming home for a long time.

    I'm sure when he takes office and pulls out of Iraq that the pressure will be on him and afghanistan w/ his policy. If he stays there for long he'll just be viewed like Bush was on Iraq.

    We're training up for deployment to Afghanistan next winter. National Guard usually get two months of pre-mob training to shake out the kinks. Not this time - we'll do all of our pre-mob training during our one weekend a month and annual training events.

    Penny wise, pound stupid. :ugh:
