Not saying that you're wrong mind you, you're right. That war pretty much cost everyone involved a ton of cash for no gain.
We're still out their I think total plan for withdrawal for both US & UK forces is 2015.

But our government is talking about us withdrawing before 2015 as early as 2013

I read the article.

Medicine has its downsides, but it is still very lucrative. Most of my MD friends have specialized and are earning low-ish-to-mid-ish six figures.

Medicine is not perfect, but it is definitely doing *far better* than law. All of my recent grad MD friends are fairly quickly paying off their student loan debt and living pretty well; my recent grad lawyer friends are without work.

I would simply strongly disagree that medicine is hurting as a career, at least in the U.S..

Edit: Specialization is really key. A primary care doctor is definitely not going to do as well typically.

No way medicine is not a good career choice. Even within medicine, there are so many specilizations. Genome and bio-statisticians are paid handsomely.

Absolutely correct
Take a look at the rate the end customer pays (even with insurance) for medical services. This hasn't gone DOWN, it's gone UP since the insurance bailout bill was passed.
There's no doubt, the medical profession is the next 'lawyer' field, with insanely high salaries. If it's not there now, it will be in just a few years.
