I'm pretty confident we'll be able to pull out of Iraq sooner than one might think. Also, I'm also hoping that a war with Iran can be avoided. But if they act on Israel, things can get hairy. Our economy is in trouble, and we don't need to continue funding wars while that's happening, that much I'm sure of.
"We spend most of our time and energy in a kind of horizontal thinking. We move along the surface of things [but] there are times when we stop. We sit still. We lose ourselves in a pile of leaves or its memory. We listen and breezes from a whole other world begin to whisper." ~James Carroll
