    Maybe the commanders should start talking to their soldiers.
    Better yet: start talking with the locals.
    And I don't mean "local leaders"...

    Talk to some women over there. See what the civilians think without the filter of pride and testosterone.

    Our senators have nothing to do over there.

    Obama needs to get the US out of Afghanistan and Iraq.

    Alright Armchair General, What's your point? You're suggesting our folks in country don't know what's going on either?

    Do you ever see a possible upside to anything Obama does?
    Do you ever stop blaming Bush for every problem? NO

    Wrong. Bush fired them when he didn't agree with them.

    Not when Bush is the one who created the problem.

    Really? Care to examine Rumsfeld's role in Iraq?

    Care to discuss why retired generals actively came out and said Iraq was failing breaking centuries of precedent of never talking about an ongoing conflict and Bush almost entirely ignored them?

    When did Bush not send troops to Afghanistan when requested by the commanders on the ground?
    One must wonder if you can read.

    I noticed you utterly failed to address anything I wrote.

    Tell me, if more troops alone would work, why aren't the French still in control of IndoChina?
