    WAKE UP RED...
    Let me offer you a possible reason he might not have acted on the troop request those 8 months...he was on the way out and did not want to tie the hands of the next president. I have no clue if that is why he did it, but it is equally as likely. Complaining about it is no different than all those who are throwing a fit because Obama is studying the Afghanistan situation before sending even more troops. Sometimes it is best to let the other guys look bad, instead of rushing to do it ourselves.

    So you think that the best course of action is not to look at all?

    The military objective of destroying the enemy will never go away, regardless of the political situation.

    Let's not put words in my mouth. I think it is best not to speculate on motives of people we do not know.

    Sorry I do not agree with you on this fellow Lib....We know the exact level of morals and the politcal ambitions of the previous adminstration.

    There is a reason Cheney hasn't faded away into retirement between surgeries...why do you think that is?

    Who is the enemy? From what I have read there are no more than 100 al Qaeda in Afghanistan,
