    Just look! They've put us on the Defensive (according to McChrystals' plan) and we are pretty much from the future (in terms of technology).

    They spend $200-$500 per soldier and we spend $1million.

    Obama will not reveal his decision right away. More from the president that claimed his administration would be transparent.


    White House braces for tough sell on Afghan policy - Yahoo! News


    Obama held the 10th meeting of his Afghanistan strategy review since mid-September on Monday night, with a large cast of foreign policy and military advisers, to go over that revised information from war planners. The two-hour Situation Room session was aimed at discussing "some of the questions that the president had, some additional answers to what he'd asked for," Gibbs said.

    The meeting was arranged for the unusual nighttime slot to accommodate both Obama's packed public schedule on Monday and the fact that many of his top advisers were leaving town for the holiday. No more war council meetings are on the calendar.

    The presidential spokesman had said ahead of the meeting that it was possible Obama could lock in a decision then, or that one could come "over the course of the next several days." In either case, it will not be announced this week, he said, and the meeting concluded with no announcement about a decision.

    The White House is aiming for an announcement by Obama next week, either Tuesday or Wednesday, after Congress returns from its Thanksgiving break.

    I also beleive he is "very close" to chosing a church as well. Only 10 months have passed on that decision.

    A war tax should be imposed on the rich.

    Liberals should be forced to move to France.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.
