    I don't know what Bush has to do with this thread, but he was wrong for fiddle ****ing around, too.

    He also goes on to say that we should confront NATO about additional troop support before America dedicates more troops.

    Re: Afghan War Debate Endangers U.S. Troops - Veterans

    Bush took 6 years to finally get a working strategy in Iraq, and we could say he wasted 8 years and never had a good strategy in Afghanistan.

    The facts are Obama already okayed a new strategy when he placed McChrystal in charge and gave him 21k new troops in June.

    Now McCrystal wants a whole new strategy of placing troops inside cities and towns to "protect civilians". No soldiers are "in danger" while the choices are being decided.

    Not wanting the President to heavily weigh this decision smells of partisan hyperbole. Why don't they simply advocate which plan they would prefer?

    One thing we do know is that the far-right will trash whichever decision is made.

    Not because of Obama's choice of a new strategy.

    6 years? Where did that number magically come from? Daily KOS?

    But, again, what does Bush have to do with this conversation?

    You're right. It's because his inability to make a decision.

    I agree with the tone of the post, not the specific nuclear attack. You'll figure out that kinda stuff when you grow up.
    The "tone" of the post was a over-compensating internet tough guy trying to show how badass he is. Do you agree with the tone because you hold a similar mindset?

    I would assume nothing since Gates hasn't met with NATO yet...
