  • I wonder how many soldiers died in those 70 days...those 70 days our president spent campaigning, spending money, apologizing for the country they were dying for........ That is no way to run a war.

    His treatment of the military is inexcusable. Some of us knew how he would be though. It's going to be okay though, he is going to talk to the terrorists and tell them to play nice. If not, he will probably take his ball and go home. Then we will be set up for another 9/11.

  • Actually things are looking up for our military. The reason being is because one of the top rules of socialism is a happy soldier is an obediant one.

  • In addition to this snubbing of those in command - AND those who could tell him the REALITY of the war theaters - Obama is keeping himself insulated from the soldiers and the families of the soldiers who are immensely impacted by the conditions their loved ones face in Afghanistan or Iraq.

    Obama has had time for 6 media interviews, for multiple speeches on healthcare, in NY at the UN and other world gatherings ... now he is off to Denmark ...

    WHY has he not taken time to give McChrystal an ANSWER ?? Facts are facts - there is nothing to wait for; just LOOK at the facts and make a decision !!
    Either GIVE our troops the support they NEED - there is safety in numbers, plus simple effectiveness in numbers.
    OR - get our guys OUT completely (and of course get ready for thousands of Americans to get injured/killed again here in the US by terrorist attacks).

    Face it - liberal "peace" policies create more death.

  • Please Obama couldn't care less about the men and women in our military or their families. He is proving that by his actions now.

  • Maybe that is how he plans on footing his spending bill. Using the money from the military budget after the Army and Marine Corps are wiped out by Al Qeada.

  • McChrystal also said he is trying to fix mistakes of last 8 years.

    AND? Are you saying that means it is ok that BO has only spoken with him once in all of this time?
