I am curious about Gov. Jan Brewer’s recent trip to Afghanistan. When she returned, she said her opinion on the planned withdrawal from Afghanistan has changed. She said, “Whatever their judgment is, is something I would have no reservations with.”

It is also interesting that Republican Mitt Romney, who called for major spending increases in the war department, lost to President Obama who argues for less military spending. There appears to be a growing consensus that deficit reduction over the long term must include significant reductions in military spending along with tax increases, especially on higher income levels.
