Good News! With a caveat though.
Obama may be scaling back but I read drones are going to be ramped up. So we don't need troops to kill their people.
Oh, and I fully support Obama's choice of Chuck Hagel to head the Defense Dept. Soldiers and veterans groups are cheering the choice while chickenhawks and NeoCons, in both parties have trouble with him.
