    and if it takes obama 6 months to make a decision, isnt that now a year and a half?
    That would be correct. How does his indecision on future strategy cause soldiers, fighting under the current strategy, to die there today?

    One thing is for sure....Obama has to have about the worst damned timing of any President I can think of.....Really? A speech to Airmen on the day that they learn that 14 of their fellow airmen died because the ran into each other?

    What does them calling us Losers add to the equasion.
    Because when they called us nazis, war criminals, murderers, drug addicts and uneducated tools, everyone, even they, knew it was all bull ****.

    Forcing our soldiers to retreat, leaving their honor on the battlefield, will have a negative affect for decades.

    yets from Afghanistan are getting what they deserve not much of anything. they made the choice to enlist. they reap the benefits and that in this case is a big zero. tough luck when it comes to following fools to battle.
    the families should start suing the government now for wrongful death to their loved ones.

    they make the choice to enlist, but they don't get to choose their wars. what they deserve is our thanks for standing ready.

    Thanks, again, for denouncing your citizenship. Having someone like you in our country is an embarressment. You probably belong right where you are, where ever that is.

    You should be at their feet, thanking them for not being fair weather patriots.
