We already have a toe-hold in the Middle East, a base of operations for doing so - so only a general draft is required to make those goals a reality. John McCain will have no choice but to facilitate this.
There are enough extremely educated and experienced folks in the armed services to be the leaders of the general grunts that will be looking for employment - with benefits and three squares a day to fill the lower pay grades.
So - investing in things like ammunition manufacturing, predator drones, ship yards and companies that make surveillance devices of all types would be a good bet - if it were my money.
The old American Dream is on its death-bed. Invest in destruction to remain comfortable. Osama is counting on it.
LP, whether or not your reply is serious or not, it seems you've become pretty jaded and cynical. It might be a good idea for you to live abroad for awhile, like CW. With the prospects for Obama's election looking pretty good, I'd have thought you would be a little more upbeat.
The old American Dream used to be home ownership. That meant working hard, 10% down and having excellent credit.
Then one day somebody decided that hey, why can't everyone have a home? Where's mine? I got to get paid too. No money down, no credit and no way to make the monthly payments. Thanks for nothing.
