    Destroy a terrorist threat and that threat wasn't represented by a single person.

    Is this what so frightens you that you are willing to continue sacrificing our soldier's lives and adding $150 billion a year to our debt?

    When the enemy no longer possesses the will to wage war. It's just like any other war. Just like The Civil War, The Boer War, The Algerian Civil War, The Spanish Civil War, The Peninsular Wars.

    One would think that vice mindlessly parroting the usual, "duh...what does victory look like", for nearly tens years, the more intelligent and educated Libbos would actually do some research on the subject and find out for themselves what, "victory looks like".

    I'll make it easy for you; reverse engineer the equation and tell us what, "victory looks like", to the Taliban and al Qaeda.

    If those 100 AQ's still have the will to wage war, then after we leave their numbers will swell into the thousands.

You see, I am opposed to wasteful government spending that adds to our already huge national debt.

    In case you haven't noticed, we have some problems of our own right here in this country that needs to be addressed.
    You support Spend Spend Spend Obama and you are against spending

    Problem is Obama refuses to listen to the generals. Obama has no expierence and does not understand the harm he is causing

    Yes just let terrorists attack us and say oh well

    According to the Libbos, WW2 brought us out of the Great Depression. Massive government spending-n-all.

    Problem is Obama refuses to listen to the generals. Obama has no expierence and does not understand the harm he is causing
    It's no accident that the withdrawal is going to be complete riiiiiiiight before the 2012 election.

    We didn't go to war against the Taliban because they are not an international threat. If you think it is, cite the officials who said we were going to war against the Taliban when we first invaded Afghanistan.
