Depends, is it in an alley or a mall kiosk?

Yes, but thats not what I'm refering too. I don't mean pull back military and cancel jobs, I mean pull them back to use them on domestic aid projects? Like rebuilding/disaster relief/ combating gangs/ kissing babies sort of happy stuff. I mean the works, everything.

Or even help out Mexico?? It seems like dealing with the countries like that where the gangs are better equiped then the cops would be a better useage of resources.
Because this would be a smart decision.

Bring everyone home to take care of the drug problem? Bringing all of us home would just create more problems...

Yes we're in Afghanistan right now fighting the war on terror. We're in South Korea stopping North Korea from coming down, we're in other countries too because they asked us to be there and to help them out. If we pulled our troops out of those countries for a year or two then it would be total chaos.
Also, how do you expect a military of close to a million help the DEA fight drugs? You want us running combat patrols though the streets of high drug traffic? Kicking in doors of known drug dealers? Trust me that ain't gonna stop people from dealing drugs.
You have to look at other foreign interests before you bring our troops home. In a way we're fighting the drug war here in Afghanistan, cause anytime we find poppy or maryjane we burn it right there on the spot, trust me I know I've done it lol
