    Were you simply not paying attention at the time? It was . . . kind of a big deal.

    Re: Cheney: Stop ‘dithering’ on Afghanistan troops

    Speaking of dithering...Was it lost before the "Surge" that took Cheney and Bush 5 years to make a decision on? After turning down the recommedations of experienced miltary people that were telling them up to 600,000 to "Do the job correctly"?
    The ones that Cheney fired.

    Cheney has ZERO credibility when it comes to making sound military decisions.

    Please, get your chronology straight, if you're going to make claims. It didn't take 5 years for the '07 Offensive to launch. And, no one reccomended 600,000 troops...lol....where'd you get that from?

    Those events are completely urelated. The 600,000 we for the invasion and a heavy occupation. They chose to go light. This worked for the first 2 years. It would have been impossible to field 600,000 for 2 years. It was only after a civil war had begun that the decision to surge 50,000 was made. It was a great decision, when everyone who was advising the president were saying no to the surge. It worked. All credit is theirs. Don;t conflate the 2.

    Obviously not. But it would have been lost if Obama, Biden, Pelosi, Reid, et al., would have gotten their way.

    Which is the point. We're hearing echoes of the exact same defeatist talk now, in this thread . . . and it isn't coming from Cheney.

    Can't those people you named get their way now?

    What is stopping them?

    Because they all know that if they have their way they'll end their political careers forever. They have to figure out a way to lose the war and make it look like someone else's fault.
