Just one issue I see causing problems for the military.

Well, if that happens, then I can see them going back. My point was that now we’ll see what happens. I see one of two paths. Either we get a year or two in and people say “well, this really hasn’t changed anything, why was this such a big deal?” or “I told you, look at all these thing that have happened” and we’ll go back to how it is now.
I mean back in the 70s Reagan and others were saying that giving back the Panama Canal would be the end of the world. It wasn’t. I’m not saying we’d beeter off without treaty, but all the doom and gloom predicted never really materialized.
