    I agree that the US military can not be defeated unless it is cut off, I do not know Afganistan can be built into a democratic nation, or if the effort to do so is worth the lives for five more years.

    I would give the Afgans the benifit of the doubt, and try (which means your freinds are in more, not less risk, for surges mean more, not less death, intially) but we have to think how long can we nation build rather than just destroy our enemies?

    it's really quite simple

    in these times of economic malaise, the prez simply can't afford to wage a war on 2 fronts

    and these days obama's busy battling beck and his boys

    and he's losing

    Obama is a pathetic Commander In Chief. Simply pathetic.




    careful, your gonna get accused of using troops death for politics brother.
    Let evil swiftly befall those who have wrongly condemned us
