    The positive side of this is that the troops will not feel they've been given a noob general to replace McChrystal, but a seasoned leader who knows the war over there. This should maintain morale.

    Re: McChrystal relieved of his command.

    I dont blame McChrystal for voting for Obama. There was a massive amount of dollars pumped into a presidential campaign designed to sucker people in. He got sucked in and bought the product. Now that hes seen the product and worked with the product he simply has an equally massive case of buyers remorse. He kept his comments to a minimum in the article and the reporter was obviously taking several phrases out of context. One of the military aids was on the news this morning expressing how surprised how the reporter spent hours with them and only took one tiny negative snippet and used it to help paint the article in a specific light and ignored many hours of information. Rolling stone and the wh administration seem to have more in common in the way they treat information than they let on. The irony is that the administration is now forced to turn to a general that was attacked a short time ago by wh sponsors and the cic himself.

    Would you like a bit of salt with that crow you are now forced to eat Mr President?
    Thank you

    What 11 months? Troops started to arrive as McCrystal requested, after a 3 month review.

    FOXNews.com - Troops Die While Obama Dithers
    Is your editorial with Oliver North using the deaths of troops to whine about Obama supposed to mean anything, other than him being one of the lowest life forms on earth? It's from October of last year, so it's not like it has anything to do with anything since then.

    I figured you would be mature enough to read the contents that included a timeline of Obama's slow reaction to the troop request. Or at least I figured you would have made a comment about the stupid title and North along with those links I asked for.


    Is this a concession on your part?

    It took 3 months to examine and evaluate and plan for an overall strategy for the war. That is not unreasonable. Your link was an op-ed that used the death of troops to score political points. I guess you are ok with that.

    Brief timeline:

    Last week in September 2009: Gen. Stanley McChrystal's request for an additional 30,000-40,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan may be received by Secretary of Defense Robert Gates in coming days, a senior defense official speaking on background told FOX News on Tuesday. [Fox story was dated 9/22]

    November 30, 2009: President Obama approves the deployment of additional soldiers to Afghanistan

    December 22, 2009: First deployment of soldiers from the surge in Afghanistan arrived.

    So 3 months is now somehow being called 11 months. Hrmm.

    Thank you Don.
