    As a concerned military mom, I hope Obama takes all the time he needs to make the right decision.

    Defeating the taliban? Not the biggest priority, I'd take beating the crap out of AQ, and going into pakistan if needed to root out obl and aq....


    Personally, i could give a crap about the taliban at this point, so there, I kinda agree with the murmur of obamas plan to target AQ, I am concerned though on how he will prosecute it.

    As a combat veteran, I can tell you sitting around waiting to get shot while your POTUS goes on leno, sucks.

    I would imagine most combat vets would have preferred that we would have done the job correctly in the first place.

    We all do. What's your point?



    Like I said in multiple posts now, I was not happy the way bush handled Afghanistan.

    That's true, but the first place has come and gone. It doesn't excuse being a **** up in the here and now.

    That's like a general, who just replaced a general who got relieved of his command saying, "well the guy I replaced was a **** up, that means that I can be a **** up, too".

    Git real folks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Perhaps the right decision will be to pull them all out.
    Obama has my support in taking all the time he needs to explore every angle of this issue, and decide upon the right course of action; hopefully, the one that will result in the fewest deaths- American and Afghan- ultimately: not just today, but in the coming weeks, years, and decades.

    Clearly a new course of action is needed..the old course has proven itself to be a dismal failure...
