Besides Troops - Biggest Winner in Iraqi Pull Out is,,,,,,,,,,,,
This is something I have not seen discussed much. Looking beyond the obvious winners, the troops, their family and friends, I think the one of the biggest winners is going to be the never growth ending military industrial complex.

I think there will be a huge push to increase it and increase the US military because of the seemingly defeat in Iraq. I even think it is fair to ask questions about the motives of those involved in this industry. I'm not saying they purposely designed this potential defeat, but will do what they can to benefit from it. Also, I think there will be a huge push for more surveillance type weapons more weaponry not as dependent on ground soldiers (less death means less outcry).

Thoughts?

1. There's a HUGE amount of equipment that has to be replaced
just to get it back to the level it was pre-Iraq. Big Bucks. BIG BIG BIG Bucks in that endeavor.
