    Troops in Iraq or Afg are by their very nature "in harm's way", so unless you are for complete withdrawal, they are carrying out the same mission McChrystal laid out in June.

    Your disingenuous posts are the reason normal conservatives ignore these rants. ...You can do better.
    That's your excuse for under-manning our army in Afghanistan? "It's already dangerous, so what's a little more danger going to hurt"?

    No, Obama said he'd "finish the job", (although my personal choice is to bring the troops home yesterday.)

    We all know the Libbos support an immediate retreat.

    You misunderstand what McChrystal wants to do, these troops (although always in danger) wouldn't be fighting on the front lines. Go read the plan please.

    And I doubt you could find a general in history that didn't desire more troops.

    Only from misguided and unnecessary wars.

    If I thought for one minute Afg or Iraq would have been real threats to America, I'd volunteer myself.

    And, here, I just called you honest. You need to do some research and connect a few dates. When you do, you'll notice that the surge began in 2007 and the war didn't hit it's sixth year, until after Bush was out of office.
