4. all very good questions

. . . my primary one, though is, how many troops will come home and when. That's what I would like to see fleshed out more. Troops should have been home yesterday.

7. Please

be patient, how much money can one guy steal at one time. Karzia has a huge family to provide for and his 401k has not hit the stratosphere yet. I forgot to check, is KBR in the Black or Red. They have to see a return on their investments too.
