Troop Redeployment

The troop redeployment announced by Shrub Jr is being positioned by the Republicans as "bringing the troops home" and "a response to the end of the Cold War." Of course, neither is true. It is completely ridiculous to think that these troops will stay in the US -- they will be redeployed (again) to Iraq (or maybe Iran, since there seem to be signs that Bush may want to get involved there, too). It is also completely ridiculous to take these troops out of Asia, where North Korea is an acknowledged possessor of weapons of mass destruction. We already have limited troops in Europe as a result of troop reductions there after the end of the Cold War.

Winning Argument (a great site) has more.

So why is this being done? There's something distinctly Rovian about this...
