    LOL...Was there ever any doubt?

    The only thing that would have been amazing is being blindsided by such revelation.

    ....thereby proving (once again) that Michael Steele is the exact wrong guy to have as the Chairman of the Republican Party at this juncture. from redesigning the offices because they were 'too masculine', to pissing off his own base for no appreciable gain, to making a fool and a tool of himself in public whenever he is given the chance, Steele just isn't what a muscular conservatism needs. that he also happens to be severely incorrect on this issue is but icing on the cake.

    No no! He is the perfect leader of the republican party. Please leave him in charge.

    The Joint Resolution of Congress which authorized the war in Afghanistan was nearly unanimous, in the House it was 420 Aye, 1 Nay, and 10 Presents. The sole nay was from Barbara Lee D, in the Senate it was 98 Ayes and 2 Presents by Larry Craig and Jesse Helms.

    The war is Obama's now he didn't choose the war, AQ chose this war, but he has chosen the current disastrous ROE.

    eh. i'm willing to give credit for that to a stupid series of cover-your-butt moves at every level of the chain of command. as CoC he and McCrystal were responsible for setting the tone; but alot of the worst inanities i think came from those in-between commands who didn't want to get in trouble.

    It's bad karma to pretend that this is a war the same as a war declared by congress as specified in the constitution. It seems we learned nothing from Viet Nam and an undeclared unconstitutional war.

    War is hell, it is not a game.

    counterinsurgency is a form of war; simply not the large-scale kinetic kind. the first war we fought was half insurgency, it is part of our heritage, too.
