    Why aren't you writing to Obama, asking him why he was more concered with giving UBL an honorable burial and making movies to enhance his public appearance rather than protecting the one guy that was the most instrumental in accomplishing the mission?

    Talk about a slap in the face and ungratefulness if we let him rot in a dusty cell for the next 33 years.
    The doc has outlived his usefulness to Obama. Obama got to take all the credit for killing UBL and now, the rest doesn't mean jack ****.

We did bring hundreds of thousands of South Vietnamese allies to the USA, where they have flourished, but we left too damned many behind.

    That said, it would be easier to list the places where people are not routinely persecuted, tortured and murdered because of their tribe, their religion or their politics. The world is largely silent because most of the world not only condones it, but practices such persecution as policy.
    That's what happens when we don't hold our ground in a foreign theater of operations.

    yes, why not occupy Pakistan as well? Great ****ing idea, wonder how many additional boots on the ground that will take...
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Do you think you're making sense? Does comparing apples to oranges sound like a good idea?

    Anyone that doesn't want U.S. troops deployed overseas should stop crying about our friends that we've left behind. Sorry to tell you, but you can't have both ways.

    Senators are more likely to read emails and give them consideration.

    It sure is a good thing to have allies like Pakistan that help us ever so much in the war on terror. I guess we owe them a healthy increase in our aid check to them next time to cover the added costs of locking these 'terrorists' up for us. Perhaps we can get them to accept all of our surplus GITMO detainees too, if the price is right. USA, USA, USA...

    Obama must feel there isn't enough room for two heroes.

    He's quick to take credit for himself.
