    What's the general consensus on Pakistan's dislike of good ol' Afghanistan? Do they hate them or really hate them?

    I guess he wasn't ready to be President by simply voting "Present" all those times in his many, many years in Congress. Well, at least he's...er...WOOHOO! HOPE AND CHANGE!

    Re: Official: Obama wants his war options changed

    STILL on the front page of dp-msm is a thread started by RightinNYC---cbs (nov 9) reports the ditherer in chief has finally decided on his strategy, "about 40K more troops"

    just two days later, he inexplicably and publicly starts from scratch

    mcchrystal, obama's hand picked commander and expert in the field, warned in his secret assessment, leaked to bob woodward---hurry, else our efforts "will likely result in failure"

    McChrystal: More Forces or 'Mission Failure' - washingtonpost.com

    just who leaked mcchrystal's assessment and exactly why the watergate wonderboy decided to publish it are worries still unanswered

    of course, obama was totally decisive when he announced his "comprehensive, new strategy" for the region

    Obama's Strategy for Afghanistan and Pakistan, March 2009 - Council on Foreign Relations

    he sounded exactly like his malcontent general

    what's changed?

    karzai?

    the election?

    obama just last week endorsed the corrupt curator

    White House Calls Karzai 'Legitimate' Leader of Afghanistan, Downplays Concerns - FOXNews.com

    obama is all over the place, he has no clue what he's doing

    he's playing politics with this war he doesn't want but owns while warriors twist

    afghanistan is killing this president, it's exposing his amateurish "abilities" and his crass political motivations

    and it's gonna get a lot worse

    About the article by RightinNYC. Click on the link prof. You will see that same day, at 10 PM the whitehouse said it was a false report.

    Why does he need to make a descision now? If you read the article we cannot even begin to deploy troops for a year anyways. He might as well weigh all his options and make the best decision he can by hearing all of the arguments. It is completely irrational to make a rushed decision in this case.

    I completely disagree with anyone saying he does not have guts because he is actually taking time to make an informed descision with more than one persons opinion. It takes more guts to stand up to a general than to just give him everything he wants.

    He does not "want out." He wants to make a smart decision.

    One more thing; who is playing politics? The president by weighing different options from different people and trying to implement the best strategy, or the people who are trying to marginalize him by calling this "indecisive" when there is no reason for a rushed descision.
