President Bush has decided to bring home tens of thousands of U.S. troops from posts around the world -- most of them in Europe and Asia -- plus 100,000 of their family members and support personnel, U.S. officials said Saturday.Exactly what this really means certainly remains to be seen. I'm dubious. First and most notably, this has no affect on Iraq or Afghanistan. Second, I'm not sure this does a damned thing ultimately to aid the program of way-overstretched troops.
The changes will have no effect on forces in Iraq or Afghanistan.
So whether this is merely a cost savings, just campaign rhetoric or what again remains to be seen.
