Last I knew we were pulling out of Iraq. To think that it can be done at the drop of a hat is naive at best.
And also last I knew General McCrystal asked for more troops for Afghanistan after doing a complete review, at Obama's request...and yet Obama has been dragging his butt trying to decide weather or not to send more troops. Dragging his butt so much that he went to bid to get the Olympics into Chicago instead of addressing McCrystal's review...a review that Obama asked for in the first place.
However I do agree with one thing. Enough time has passed combined with General McCrystals report that this has become Obama's war now. It is no longer Bush's war.
