    Nixon didn't execute the war the way it should have been, but he was certainly more agressive than anyone else. His actions brought on The Paris Peace Accords.

    I do think Afghanistan has been the forgotten war, but that is because it is very difficult to win there.
    Ummm you do know 100,000+ Iraqis and 3,000+(then) soldiers died before they boosted troop levels in Iraq right? And this boost only came YEARS after being recommended by Gen. Shinseki?

    What I would say to President Obama is...Thank you sir, for having enough respect for your country and having the courage to take the time it requires to make the correct choices. Thank you for not rushing to judgement and relying on all sources of intelligence and using your sound presence of mind not to rush and act on faulty intelligence.

    That's what I would tell him.....

    I agree, I prefer overwhelming numbers in most tactical situations. Pussyfooting is for the media.

    I dont care if there is anyone left to be shocked or awed I just want everyone to come home safe.

    Sounds like some people here would say.."I don't care if your decision is good or bad....Just make it FAST!"

    Newsflash: This isn't Iraq and Bush isn't president. Is that going to constantly be PBO's excuse, "but, but, Bush did it, waaaaaaaaaaaaa"?

    Judging by history it is already going to be a bad decision. Just get it done.
    Thank you

    A bad decision is better than no decision. There was an old saying when I was in the Army: "Make a decision, even if it's wrong".
