    I hardly think it's because Righties just want to have a war going on for the hell of it.

    Personally, I think it was because Bush was far too concerned about the Libbos whining about being too hard on the enemy. I think that he should have placed restrictions on the press, went in and did what had to be done.

    The JCS already know and agree with the strategy. The Chairman seems to be very clear about what the strategy is.

    So I guess the answer is that that Bob Gates & Obama just want as many of our soldiers to die over there as possible...Is that it??

    Ok, tell us all the great things the Libbos have done to help win the war. I can't wait for this.

    I'm still waiting for the right wing to tell us what they have done after 8 years.

    So you think everyone that serves in the military is a conservative?

    And as far as politicians go, they gave Bush everything he wanted.

    The reason these "wars" aren't won, is because there are no armies to defeat.

    Al Quaida, like terrorism, can move from country to country and we need to focus on intelligence, international cooperation, and yes, police work in eliminating it, not invading and nationbuilding.

    I meant that the czars are going to put an end to all the free press stuff. I was being sarcastic.
