    My Comment: Yup .... it has been a long 11 years.

    And just what do we have for that? Nothing! Iraq is falling into the morass of inter-faction warfare with Iran doing its best to destabilize the government. We have a petty dictator in charge of Afghanistan who has millions stashed in hidden accounts and giving US military a rough time. And, worst of all, we have thousands upon thousands of our men and women living with disabilities. With the current economy and administration policies, what are their possibilities for a rosy future?
