I remember during his campaign he really made it a point to end the senseless and expensive wars, but under his command there has been an increase of "shadow wars" in Africa, the middle east, and now apparently they are contemplating sending SEALS into Mexico to go after the Cartel Kingpins.

It's kind of interesting to me when a Presidential campaign seems to advocate less spending, cutbacks, etc and then continues to spend on these missions overseas.

What are the thoughts of this forum on these things?
