    When you're putting troops lives on the line you want someone making the right decision, not someone saying you have thirty days to come up with a plan.

    Look how Iraq panned out, the invasion went like clockwork, as a matter of fact we almost outran our supply line….but it wasn’t thought out what we would do when we overthru Saddam and defeated what was left of his so-called army. It was a great big capital WTF moment for awhile there.

    Obama seems to be treaty the military like a married man treats a mistress "yea just a little while longer and i will leave her baby "

    are you disputing that JFK is only popular because he was assassinated?

    are you saying JFKs presidency was so great he should be remembered as he is, than maybe you could enumerate his many accomplishmenst, aside from being a junkie and a whore of course

    So Obama not listening to the commanders he put in place makes sense to you?

    I think we should get out of Afghanistan. We can't win there, no matter how long we stay... not by any humane means, anyways. Besides, if we continue to stir things up in the area, we might anger China. They do share a border.

    They have to listen to him too. He's their commander-in-chief. He has the final say in the matter.

    Those commanders may have experience on the ground, but similarly, they do not consider the geo-political implications of what they are doing. They have specific missions and they carry them out.

    Obama has a much wider, if less detailed, view of the issue.
