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

    Sure we should make snap decisions on warfare just like Rummy/Bush did when planning the invasion of Iraq. Here is Rummys outline, comeing up with the commander's estimate to build the base of a new Iraq war plan.

    < . In two pages the order said Rumsfeld wanted to know how Franks would conduct military operations to remove Saddam from power, eliminate the threat of any possible weapons of mass destruction, and choke off his suspected support of terrorism>

    Yep Bunkie do all of that in two pages, and of course Franks had thirty days to come up with his estimate.

    I can see where President Obama might be a bit reticent before making a hasty decision on troops.

    Kinda easy for us computer warriors to set on our a**s and second guess battlefield decisions, as if our adeptness with google makes us second only to…well, hell, seeing as I’m a jarhead Chesty Puller in military planning.

    OK, I’m done, lets hear the usual chorus of you don’t know s***.

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

    just one more reason why this token will be a one termer
    not to mention how congress will go grossly right in the next 2 elections

    that is what happens when you elect to the highest office in the land, a person with ZERO executive experience. #ObamaFail

    he has had a year since being elected and 10 months since being sworn in

    this is hardly a new development

    this is just another example of the Epic #ObamaFail

    Nah,the Dems will lose a couple of seats in the midterms and by the time of the next Presidential, if the economy is down to single digit unemployment, Obama will be reelected.

Care to support a single instance in history that worked with just more troops that did not result in near mass exterminations?

    Just because the Democrats are scum doesn't make you no longer a raging partisan hypocrite.
    He listened to his commanders and did not think he knew more than them. He was not an elitist like Obama

    Apparently if Obama takes a while to make a decision that Bush put off year after year, he deserves nothing but criticism. But Bush deserves none despite not ever making a decision.

    The fundamental problem with Afghanistan is the lack of economic development. And as all COIN worth its salt argues, without development, there can be no success. Now, tell me, what has changed in that aspect from Bush to Obama? Bush never made any real decision regarding that in 7 years of the conflict. Now you expect Obama to make a decision about the same thing in less then a year?

    Partisan Hypocrite I smell.
    When did Bush not send troops to Afghanistan when requested by the commanders on the ground?

    the country does not approve of the Healthcare reform

    he failed epically on climate change as nothing will happen in copenhagen and Cap n Trade is dead

    he has failed on his 2 main commitments. his opponents hate him, and his supporters, littel by little are seeing how incompetent he is


    he is a one termer, and a failed one termer at that
    best thing that could happen to Barry would be assassination
    than like JFK everybody could lie about what an incredible president he was
    short of that, he is a failure

    3 months is avoiding a decision not a snap decision
