It would be difficult to imagine military deployments having much effect at all upon domestic security given all the many and redundant security forces our government agencies have at federal, state, local and even private levels. Of course, the longer the war continues, and depending on how much americans end up paying to rebuild Iraq and maintain military presence there or elsewhere in the middle-east, and assuming our government does not find it necessary to"pre-emptively" start another war or wars somewhere else, and on the condition that Congress fully funds the Homeland Security mandates it has imposed upon the States, and our economy recovers fairly quickly (so that taxes get generated), and if replacement of military equipment losses in Iraq doesn't cost too much, and an unwise tax cut in time of war is defeated, and nothing else unexpected happens...then we should be fine.

Indirectly as the Arab world see's it as an invasion of an Arab/muslim country by infidials.
It will cause more hate and less security to people of the US (terrorist activity) but no threat to the country as a whole

This Day in History
1863: Confederate General John Bell Hood is officially removed as commander of the Army of Tennessee.

1870: Declaring he did not care whether or not it was the rebellious band of Indians he had been searching for, Colonel Eugene Baker orders his men to attack a sleeping camp of peaceful Blackfeet along the Marias River in northern Montana.

1941: Charles A. Lindbergh, a national hero since his nonstop solo flight across the Atlantic, testifies before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on the Lend-Lease policy-and suggests that the United States negotiate a neutrality pact with Hitler. He eventually contributed to the war effort, though, flying 50 combat missions over the Pacific.

1949: The Communist Chinese forces begin their advance on Nanking.

1951: Thirty-three F-84s of the U.S. Air Forces 27th Fighter-Escort Wing engaged 30 MiG-15s in a dogfight over the skies of Sinuiju. In less than a minute Captains Allen McGuire and William Slaughter each destroyed a MiG while First Lieutenant Jacob Kratt scored two kills, the first double MiG kill of the war.

1951: U.S. First Marine Division elements attacked guerrilla concentrations in the vicinity of Andong.

1953: The U.S. Air Forces 18th Fighter-Bomber Wing flew the last F-51 Mustang mission of the war.

1968: The USS Pueblo is attacked and seized by four North Korean torpedo boats, a N. Korean sub chaser ship and two Mig jets. The Pueblo is 15.8 miles off Wonsan, N. Korea, and in International waters. No American planes are scrambled from South Korea and except through diplomatic efforts, no attempt is made to recover the ship or its crew. One crew member is killed as a result of the attack and the crew is held in captivity for eleven months before being released.

1973: President Richard Nixon claims that Vietnam peace has been reached in Paris and that the POWs would be home in 60 days.
