    I hoped that common sense would prevail. This is an escalation of troops at a point in time when the country cannot afford another failed nation building effort and the military is stressed to the breaking point.

    Furthermore, the disappointment is cumulative. First the disappointing approach to the financial crisis, the nomination of Geithner and sidelining of Volker and people who are NOT insiders. The disinterest in accountability. Then, the continuation of Bush's national security agenda, aerial strikes and so forth. Now the administration is looking backward in its approach to Honduras and escalating a hopeless war. All these things could not have been predicted during the campaign.

    If we get attacked by an army while we send more to war then we should hold TPTB for treason. How much war is too much? Is there ever a time when we will decide that distributing death in this fashion is just too wrong? We have already found out that overwhelming majority of fighters against us are territory battlers. Not psycho jihadists.

    Yea, it would be much better if he just retreated like a coward from a war of necessity.

    I support you Mr. President! Win this war!

    It's too late for second guessing his decision. He's made a decision to send more troops. You would do well to support him and the troops.

    What do you mean another failed effort? We're winning in Iraq. Take your defeatist nonsense to Code Pink.

    It's a little harder and more involved than that seals game you have on your wii, you know that right?



    Non-interventionism + free trade + cultural exchanges + full diplomatic relations = peace.
