    And of course I agree with that. I also agree with the idea pressure needs to mount to get us out of that quagmire.

    I suppose you might be right...but his actions sure don't support you.

    I don't see exactly how that would benefit him, his party, or his policies.

    I don't either, but heck...most of his actions don't benefit anyone.

    I think my correction is accurate that Republicans benefit from Afghanistan turning into Vietnam...hence your psuedo-fist pump that Afghanistan is not going well.
    No...Republicans don't benefit either. But one thing is for sure...the Republicans know how to make decisions. They would, at least, decide to do something instead of sticking our troops heads in the sand.

    They definately are quick to make decisions. Very bad and constly one's but I guess being the "decider" is more important than being the thinker.

    Tell me...if we remove all the troops and leave the drones...do you think the drones will service themselves?

    Pathetic lack of reasoning skill, dude.


    Of course we wilneed a drone base to launch and service them. soldiers will stay on the base not among the population to act as targets.

    btw, before you start saying we lost in Iraq, you should check with Obama...he might have a dispute with your assessment.




    Obama announces end of Iraq war, troops to return home by year end - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    Hardly sounds like the words of a President who was defeated, don't you think?
    We "won" in Iraq the same way we won in Vietnam......by LEAVING. That is the only way to win stupid wars like those. It is pathetic to kill and maim more of our soldiers for nothing.
    It was a glorious victory for sanity the day we left Saigon and Bagdad.

    We won in Iraq by deposing a (twice) genocidal dictator who was selling food-for-oil and in violation of 17 UNSCRs, and instituting a fledgling democracy (which still survives today). That's not the same as Vietnam.

    And after 4000 American deaths, 20,000 wounded and a trillion dollars spent, Iraq is run by Iranian sympathizers selling gasoline to Iran against U.N. sanctions.
    No, it is worse than Vietnam, we actually helped our enemy Iran with American blood and treasure.
