Do you think that we could continue doing it -- lets say if the Iran or NK or...whoever becomes a real danger to the USA (and alies)? Would that prove the silliness of this war that we stretched ourselves so much now that we cannot respont adequately to the real danger (and act as the defensive force as we're supposed to be)?
