    Than why isn't the GOP demanding an immediate withdrawal to spoil his secret plan?

    They were an ally to AQ, which made them just as big of a threat. Italy wasn't a threat, but we declared war on them, when we declared war on Germany and Japan.

    If you think it is, cite the officials who said we were going to war against the Taliban when we first invaded Afghanistan.
    Who were we fighting when we first invaded Afghanistan? The Taliban, perhaps?

    Because most in the GOP know that if we leave, with the job half finished, we'll only have to go back and do it again, costing even more American lives. Say what you want about the GOP, but they're not going to expend the lives of American service members to win political points.

    Just as I thought, no documentation to back up your personal opinion. Thanks anyway!

    So, are you claiming that we didn't fight the Taliban when we invaded Afghanistan? You sure about that?

    If Afghanistan is a wrap, why isn't Obama ordering the immediate withdrawal of all U.S. forces? Why drag it out over a year-and-a-half?

    Because the GOP respects the military. Obama sees the military as a campaign tool

    Because he shares the same wrong-headed notion that Bush did, that we have some more nation building to do.
