Entry for February 03, 2009″Leftovers” Part 1

As another very cold is upon us, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. Spring is six weeks away chronologically. As the new administration is unfolding, the previous administration has left blunders of enormous proportions. These leftovers are as follows:1) The war in Iraq. Updating; the election that was held successfully although not w/o violence.The handover went well.There will be a general election this autumn. Little by little the Iraqis are taking over their own country with responsibility and savre faire. The Iraqi troops are now peacekeepers in their nation.The pull out of American troops is gradually taking place and will be hopefully finish by 2011. The British troops are scheduled to be out by May of this year.2) The war in Afghanistan is a far reaching dilemna. More American troops are being redeployed from Iraq to Afghanistan. This war was previously noted as the other war. Now it is a main concern and shows clear and present danger to world peace. Now it is a detriment to the U.S.3) The recession: This has taken a hold on the country. There were clear causes yet now this nation has to deal with the aftermath. The continuous lost of jobs. The closing of companies that have impacted the economy. The past holiday showed the downturn with major sales that at some point were slashed to give consumers a break. That didn’t work so the well known companies had to go out of business. This trend was shown nationwide regardless of the geographic spectrum.
