Good points to ponder.

A sane voice in a thread of unsubstantiated claims.

I read that article and thought it sound more like good news. I mean, less troops, engaged in a less aggressive role. Not to mention no bases. Like it or not, Obama seems to be following through on withdrawing from the region in a responsible manner. At least from what I am seeing in the headlines. Still, he is making up for it in the drone strikes.
