Some things..

Is it just me or are there somethings this country does that doesn't need to be broadcasted to the whole world... Like.. i dunno.. A TROOP SURGE... why do we constantly give the world a play by play? How are we ever gonna win this thing if we keep telling them every move we're making? I think things like this should be more hush hush... telling everyone 'this is our plan", only allows time for them build one better off of ours...

  • My 14 yr old history buff said this exact same thing last night. Shook his head, and said " are we pulling out or staying in? we're going in so that we can pack up and leave?"

  • Another good point, would be
    1. Is this going to be Obama's "Good War" ?
    2.How much money is Obama spending on a War he campaigned against and complained about Bush spending money on?
    3.Is this going directly against his overt and covert promises to what his voters wanted to believe?
    4.Does he have anyone to blame anymore regarding War policies?
    5. Where is the 18 month benchmark coming from? Campaign time again?
    6. Wasn't Obama and the extreme left, Anti-War totally under Bush?

  • Even if Obozo pulls out in 18 months, this war will last longer than Vietnam by 13 months. Can anyone believe your children are growing up during a war that lasted longer than Vietnam?
