Suppose the troops returned from Iraq, how would this affect the market? Oth, everyone is home and suppose there is a terrorist attack overseas, will the market react with uncertainty because we are not in Iraq? Suppose Iran invades Iraq the minute we leave (or Turkey invades Iraq). How will the market react? You know if the troops pull out of the middle east, no politician will advocate for a return of troops. What then? Watch the markets crumble? What good will cheap money do if no one is willing to invest because of the uncertainty.
