    OK, folks. This critter got all of 3 visits in a month, and those are probably mine. What do I do?

    "A Short Discussion about World Deployment of U.S. Troops"

    http://paradigmsearch.hubpages.com/hub/ … Bases-Base

    In addition to improving the hub itself, anybody got any ideas as to how I can get outsiders to start arguing in the comments section? I've seen it happen in other hubs. I could not care less as to what political opinions are stated there, just so long as they are being stated.

      I'm no way an expert in this, but part of the traffic problem may be in the title which starts with "A Short Discussion About..."

      Perhaps a more direct or provocative title might help-- Like (though these may be poor, off the top of my spur of the moment)

      Why Are US Troops stationed all over the world?
      US troops are all over the word. Why?

      Not necessarily the best suggestions,... but maybe something to build upon. I haven't looked at the tags.

      Hey Para,

      I read your hub and left you a comment. As for providing you any needed changes? I think the best change you could have done was already suggested by Rochelle and already implemented by you. wink

        Thanks Cags. You and 2 others darn near doubled my word count.

    Follow up:

    Jeez, talk about me having a major blind spot! That sure was one of them. "Extreme Hub Makeover" really works!

    I've fixed the title. Thank you again, Rochelle. smile smile smile

      No problem. Sometimes a quick glance with new eyes-- yours or others-- gives a new perspective.
      I appreciate your appreciation. big_smile 
      I'm sure the subject is one many have wondered about, both here and abroad.

    Last call.

    Rochelle has fixed my most egregious error, but if there are any other ideas/suggestions, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

    And btw, http://markewbie.hubpages.com/ also does political articles. smile
