I would say that our nation may waste more of our resources and financial means compared to many other nations. I would disagree that those who are unfortunately embedded in desert sand with a shortage of personal body armor, limited rounds of ammunition and no means to freely communicat with their families back here in the good old USA would consider any money going to their part of the world as wasteful. Sure, we may have been out of order sending them there, but cutting off the money prematurely would also be cutting them off in life prematurely. I agree in principle, just with a different order of operation. Worry about life first, wastfull government once all are back home safely. We will get our chance next November to speak with our united voice.
