    But honestly, Rev. We have been at this troop strength and deployment for 6 months. Another month isn't going to be disastrous. Of course, if the Taliban surge against another outpost and cause us to pull out, tis not good.

    I think that the concept that savages who have been killing each other for thousands of years will suddenly decide they want an American style democracy & stop the killings is a pipe dream.

    I'd love to be proven wrong....but I don't think I will be.

    ok look at obama and his history...


    Voted "present" most of the time he was in the senate

    Did not know which side to take a stand on with Georgia war, Only did so after mccain

    Won't take a stand on healthcare, leaves it to congress, even dems are pissed at him here.

    The ONLY thing he has taken a hard stand on is marijuana raids....



    He is indecisive and I have no confidence that he is simply being "cautious"


    That's my take on it.

    Hell yes he's wrong.

    Cheney is the pro Ditherer. He should be gone and has no place making comments such as these he's made about a new president that has tought choices to make. Again he is doing everything he can to openly attack the president and the country and the moral of the troops...He had his chance to do the right things and make the right choices and didn't. I think this is his own little way of diverting attention away from his record on torture..yet another failure and wrong decision he made.

    At least he made a decision.

    Actually it's a personal one. As I have friends in country. I also remember when Bush I was indecisive back in 91... We sat there not knowing if we were going into bagdhad or not....


    And it sucked. We weren't taking fire at the time either, it must REALLY suck as I am being told to be shot at and not knowing what the mission is....



    Partisanism has nothing to do with it. If Bush did it, i'd hold the same position.
