    Obama didn't send 100,000 troops to Afghanistan. Stop trying to prop that idiot up with untruths.

    This is about not wanting my countrymen walking around there with targets on their backs, and also not wanting us to commit mass murder.

    The solution is simple: Leave, until such time as Iraq poses a threat to our security.
    How are we to recognize that threat? After Americans get killed, or before?

    I feel so scared that I seem to be on the same side of this issue as Apdst.

    OK he increased the troop level to 100,000 happy. Does that really change anything except for political hacks. We still have 100K American kids risking their lives. For what, so another cheap politician can follow through his B.S. on the campaign trail.

    I find this worse than anything done the last two years. It is one thing to piss away a few trillion dollars. But to allow kids to be killed to prove this is the war we should have fought is totally f***** up!

    Looks like that political solution that was touted as the answer to ending the war isn't going to work out so well.
    Because the military occupation was going just splendidly.

    Wars can't be won politically The only way to win a war, is to kill the enemy, with the maximum amount of violence. Had we done that in 2003, we wouldn't still be talking about this. There damn sure wouldn't be an insurgent presence in Iraq.
    Your idiotic invocation of Godwin aside, you can't compare the Nazis to the insurgents simply because the Nazis weren't fighting a guerrilla war and the insurgents are.

    The problem isn't killing the enemy. The problem is locating the enemy.

    The same way we recognized the threat that was used to justify the invasion to begin with, I guess.

    In other words, neither!
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Sometimes, Barney, it does happen.
    I'm out of purple paint right now.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
