    ... as is every soldier that has died or been hurt since he read the report (I don't care when he received it, he's had it for over a month now!). His incompetence is screaming!
    8 vs. how many who did because of Bush/Cheney's lies?

    Saying things like this make you look really silly, Rev.

    No president is going to just forget that there's a war going on.

    That's true. No matter how hard PBO tries to ignores the war, he'll never forget about it.

    Okay fine just jump in and see what happens. I'd rather have a careful and considered approach to the situation than just a hodgepodge.

    Well, you can study the situation till the cows come home, but time is money in these matters. There comes a point where you have to make a decision. The situation on the ground can't wait for you to study the situation and devise the perfect plan.

    It's like this, if you make a decision, there's a chance that it won't be a good decision. If you don't make a decision, there's a 100% chance that a good decision will never be made.

    Decisions have been made. In fact, what is requested is a change in a decision that was made. There is no chance of no decision.

    I don't think you will ever acknowledge the approach as good or bad Obama takes to the Afghanistan situation even if he nukes the place or turns the nation into ally. The only thing you are worried about is the fact Obama is a Democrat and I suspect you would be secretly happy if more troops parished under his tenure at the very least you would use it for political gain not the gain of the troops or the USA.

    The decision has been made not to send additional troops to the ATO? When was that?
