    McChrystal gave a the number of troops he needs to combat the Taliban. Does he still need that same number if he is no longer combating the Taliban? Should Obama oblige McChrystal's current mission based request if Obama is going to change McChrystal's mission?

    Personally I think Obama is fool. Take out the Taliban and you start choking off AL-Q supplies and safety and thus make them that easier to defeat. Of course fighting the Taliban puts us into the same situation we are in in Iraq, nation building.
    Yeah, he's trying to decide if he's going to change the mission to a surrender mission.

    Uh you mean keep the mission as counter-terrorism, just like it was under Bush?

    I won't let you get away with your ignorance on this thread, too. Go back to the thread you started and rebut my posts.

    Obama is a weak leader. That much is obvious...

    Considering how Bush was a weak leader...and Obama is a Bush clone that does make sense.

    Because he projected strength and resolve.

    Every time Bush spoke about military matters I felt like I was listening to the Commander In Chief instead of some political animal.

    Obama seems like hes a hostage to political circumstance; like he's not a leader.

    I don't think anyone could do that. Except Terry Schiavo.
