I've seen the U.S. is establishing a military base in Australia and at the end of the year we are pulling out of Iraq. I've also noticed that the military is currently over manned. Is our government planning to attack North Korea? The U.S. accuses China of manipulating currency, spying through U.S. networks, hacking satellites,etc. China recently announced they are increasing military ties with North Korea. We are bolstering ties with Myanmar (possible future military hub?). Is it possible that Obama is planning something for his 2012 candidacy? I mean I think its what helped Bush stay in office. Thoughts and opinions?
