There's a lot of attention being paid to the elections and the resignation of 'frightening old man' Rumsfeld. What a lot of people are considering these days, is what impact the Democrats victory will have in the long run.

I think there will be more focus on diplomacy and peaceful means to solve the ongoing conflicts (of which Iraq, Iran and also N.Korea are the result of the clumsy brutalism of Mr.Bush and his true believers). In one way, there is reason for hope now, and I congratulate the americans with at last electing somebody who, at least in theory, are able to see the larger consequences of their actions.

But I guess the average American reader has more to say about this than I have. Cheers!

No interest. from the crowd
I guess you're all tired of politics. Or there's just not anyone actually reading this site. I'll leave this comment as my last, if nooen else has anything on their mind (I promise...)

The problem isn't that no one reads the site. The problem is that most people come to the site with a specific mindset and they wish to read a particular thing. Also, politics isn't really a famous topic here. Many discussions end with someone leaving the site for some reason, all because some random person dismissed their comment. I agree with your piece. And I don't think you should take it personally that there aren't any comments.

..several trillion dollars later..The US is now dropping bombs on and firing missiles into more countries than we were in 2006.

Our relations with Pakistan are far worse than they were in 2006. We continue to drop bombs from drones on targets inside Pakistan.

Our relations with Iran and North Korea are no better, if not worse.

We were not bombing Libya in 2006.

We were not dropping bombs from drones in Yemen or Somalia in 2006.

We have nearly three times as many armed forces [roughly 100,000] in Afghanistan than in 2006. Even after the planned troop reductions over the next year, there will be twice as many as in 2006. The "surge"..ordered by President Obama in 2009, continues on.

And Iraq remains one of the most dangerous places in the world, as tribal conflicts continue. {Roughly 50,000 US military forces remain in Iraq].

Add Egypt in chaos, Syria on the brink, an unstable Bahrain..
