even though I suspect that having armed forces in Iraq has kept the terrorists off our home soil...

Can barely comprehend these astronomical figures.

A thought about the counter - If all the troops were on home soil and the counter represented their cost there - it would still be going up? NT

It would be going up but not as fast because

most of the soldiers in Iraq would be home working at their regular jobs.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
