    Obama "very close" to Afghan troop decision: TV report - Yahoo! News

    U.S. President Barack Obama said in an interview with CNN on Wednesday he is "very close" to a decision on boosting troop levels in Afghanistan and would make an announcement "in the next several weeks."
    Is he playing horseshoes?

    Since you apparently think you have the answers to Afghanistan, tell me.

    What can Afghanistan produce and export to the world economy to provide revenues to develop and provide opportunities to its people?

    After all, COIN hinges upon development.

    Or you could just pretend this post like the others don't exist because it's easier for you to pretend holes in your belief system don't exist.

    any kind of tax for war would royally piss off his party

    and kind of tax for anything would enrage the right

    obey's/rangel's afghanistan tax is a non starter

    it's posturing, like rangel's threats to initiate a draft

    rangel, by the way, just happens to be the most corrupt critter in dc

    Bob Ainsworth criticises Barack Obama over Afghanistan - Telegraph


    Mr Ainsworth took the unprecedented step of publicly criticising the US President and his delays in sending more troops to bolster the mission against the Taliban.

    A “period of hiatus” in Washington - and a lack of clear direction - had made it harder for ministers to persuade the British public to go on backing the Afghan mission in the face of a rising death toll, he said.

    Senior British Government sources have become increasingly frustrated with Mr Obama’s “dithering” on Afghanistan, the Daily Telegraph disclosed earlier this month, with several former British defence chiefs echoing the concerns.

    But Mr Ainsworth is the first Government minister to express in public what amounts to personal criticism of the US president’s leadership over the conflict which has so far cost 235 British lives.

    Polls show most voters now want an early withdrawal, following the death of 98 British service personnel this year alone.

    Ministers say the mission is vital to stop international terrorists using Afghanistan as a base, but Gordon Brown has promised an “exit strategy” that could start next year.

    The Defence Secretary’s blunt remarks about the US threaten to strain further a transatlantic relationship already under pressure over the British release of the Lockerbie bomber and Mr Obama’s decision to snub Mr Brown at the United Nations in September.
