If the gov't know about an asteroid on it's way very soon, don't you think there would be a larg amt of US Soldiers coming back from Iraq for the sole purpose of policing the chaos. They wouldn't even need to tell anyone why they are coming back, people would just assume that since we are in the process of handing over control to a new Iraqi gov't we wouldn't need as much of a military presence. If anything else, people would think that Bush was just responding to the majority of people who want us our of there. I would think that even if there is a disaster coming and gov't officials will be taken underground or something that they would want as much of the military back here as possible in order to control whateve population is left after impact....

On the contrary, if there were asteroids known to be on a collision course with Earth, and we didn't know exactly where it/they will fall, it would be better to have the military all over the globe, in this way at least a large part of our forces will survive since there is bound to be a place that is not going to be affected as much by the impact.
