    The truth is the Obama haters are more concerned about hurting Obama than they are about the troops.
    It shows Obama is not capable of making a decision and is not qualified to be commander in chief

    No, what it shows is the Anti-Obama crowd couldn't give a **** about the troops. They only care about hurting Obama.

    We know how Afghanistan will play out. There's no reason for Obama to not crack open a mother****ing history book and look at what the Goat herders did to the Soviets. Providing the Russians are funding and equipping them, we've still got to fight ****s that were armed and trained by Americans.

    I smell another hypocrite.

    Bush took time to get with the tactical overhaul in Iraq. And history book after history book all show that unless you are willing to kill every man, woman and child, more troops without change in tactics will not work.

    So are you okay with Genocide?

    Re: Obama "very close" to Afghan troop decision: TV report

    Why is it so damn hard for people to treat politicians the same for the same activities and behaviors?

    The difference here is that there was an actual viable plan for Iraq based around development and oil. Guess who took forever to get that plan into action?

    Can anyone name me something other then opium that Afghanistan can export and produce sufficent income to provide opportunities for its people? There is a reason I never gave Bush much (if any) flak over Afghanistan. There really isn't. Bush faced this. And now Obama has to. And the options they both had are the same and both suck. I can see why Obama is taking his time. If more troops worked by itself as the loonies here like to argue, the French would still hold IndoChina.

    There's the answer to your question. There will be no treating of anyone the same as anyone else, especially if they're on the other side of the fence.

    Oh....and I'm sure you thought the quick and poor decision making that got us involved in this mess is the first place was commendable, right?

    You mean the way we moved to kick the Taliban out of Afghanistan.
