Anti-war pussyfist(pussy+pacifist, Yeah I know those words mean the same thing,so it is a little ) have absolutely no business trying to dictate how wars should be fought. If they do not like the fact our country engages in war every now and then, then they should pack their **** up and move to France,Canada or Switzerland.
Washington Times - Antiwar groups want Obama to forget pledge
The antiwar left blasted former President George W. Bush for "lying" about the war in Iraq — "Bush lied, people died" — but now some feel betrayed that President Obama is keeping his word about Afghanistan.
Mr. Obama on Wednesday announced the deployment of 17,000 troops to Afghanistan in keeping with his position as a candidate that the United States needs to redouble its efforts there.

Many antiwar activists, including some who supported Mr. Obama, were angered by the move, with some saying they had hoped his war stance was "just campaign talk."

"I'm very upset; he promised change, and this is not change. It's just going to create more deaths on both sides and create more terrorists," said Jodie Evans, co-founder of Code Pink. The group, known for protests and targeting Bush administration officials, posted a statement Thursday condemning Mr. Obama's decision and urging him to replace the combat troops with "humanitarian troops."
"Afghanistan needs troops of doctors, farmers, teachers, not more troops," the statement says.
During last year's election, Miss Evans was a strong supporter of Mr. Obama and was listed as a "bundler" on his campaign Web site, raising between $50,000 and $100,000 for the future president.
