    PBO isn't sitting in DC saying, "The troops are ready to go, General, you just tell me when to kick them off".
    Perhaps this is because the decision as to what to do in Afghanistan is slightly more complex than "yea, call it a disaster"?
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    But apparently, according to aspdt and Rev and a handful of others, he should rush into it, despite advice from some in the pentagon that it isa bad plan, and reservations from the Army Chief of Staff, General Casey. I wonder what those people would say if Obama rushed into it, and it proved to be a bad plan...

    I do agree that he cannot procrastinate in a decison too long and make it an informed decision but I fail to see any substantial evidence that Obama has bemm "afraid to support his own army on the battlefield ".

    What hit me after the initial GD IT and F#$% NO when I heard the news was that this will be used by those who are opposed tro us doing what is right in Afghnastan as a anti-war weapon. "anti-war weapon" oxymoronic isn't it!!

    Guess what ? He's the end link in the Chain, and it's Decision Time! And it appears that he's not up for it.

    Prior to being embarrassed into a second meeting he had only met with Mchrystal a total of one time. Now he's forced the general to fly to Copenhagen. The Democrats in Congress are currently blocking MccHrystal from appearing infront of the Senate. This is because they want us to lose the war in Afghanistan as they have wanted us to lose every war since Vietnam.

    The Generals have already told him what to do SEND MORE TROOPS. Obama and the Democrats in Congress want to lose in Afghanistan which is made abundantly clear by the facts that 1) Obama only met with MccHrystal one time until being embarrassed just now into a second meeting, and 2) the Democrats in the Senate voted unanimously to block MccHyrstal from appearing before the Senate along with other top military brass to tell them the need for a troop increase. Yes Democrats want to lose in Afghanistan just as they wanted us to lose in Iraq.
