    Well that must be the secret strategy they passed along to Obama, and he's carrying it out flawlessly.

    So you ignore the fact that The President has sent 28,000 additional troops into Afghanistan since he's been in office while again ignoring the fact that that request for additional troops sat on Bush's desk for eight months?

    Grow up, Troll. I'm a troop, & a GWOT vet and I didn't take offense to it.

    I know what he meant.

    If you want to learn something about the topic instead of sifting through threads until you find an opportunity to say something partisan, read my original post on this thread.

    You cannot ignore seven years of neglect and state "well that is history" Obama is moving cautiously in Afrghanistan because he has been doing more than just boosting military numbers.

    Read any serious journal article on Afghanistan (and not some partisan drivel) and you will see one of the first things they did was boost CIVILIAN numbers to try and stabilise the country's infrastructure.

    The internet is like a herd of performing elephants with diarrhoea -- massive, difficult to redirect, awe-inspiring, entertaining, and a source of mind- boggling amounts of excrement when you least expect it.

    Any way you look at it Prof the previous administration with their blatant stand off policly purposely tried to set this administration and America up to fail in Afghanistan. At the expense of our troops in the field. Why didn't Bush send additional troops when he was requested to do so?

    I doubt you have anything to back that up. Purposely set up the troop and this administration?

    Yep..the proof is in the pudding....

    Why did the troop request sit on Bush's desk for eight months and he never approved them?

    Sounds like a purposeful setup to me.
