Obama: Afghan war will worsen before it improves

Is this his answer to everything? Economy, health care, war...... I'm guessing we won't see our troops come home unless the economy improves. He certainly would rather dump billions on a useless war than have to deal with all the unemployed veterans we would have.

Is anyone else sick of this?

  • It will unless he is willing to let the generals run the war and get the Congress out of it. This is the lesson not learned from Viet Nam. Leave the making of war to the experts. Congress is too worried out its collective political ass to fight a war. You must have a complete and total commitment to winning and not withdrawing no matter win or loose. Our enemies understand this very well.

  • LOL They want to be able to look good if something miraculous happens in all these cases. Since they know it most likely won't they make sure they let you know ahead of time so at least they can claim to be open and transparent.

  • Yes, and tonight the sun will set before it rises in the morning.

    Sheesh.

    Now, Obama, since you know you're going to leave them over there for who knows how long, do the right thing and give the troops everything they need to be fully successful in their missions.

  • Wenona, you just keep blaming Bush. However,

    HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT OBAMA EXPANDING THE PATRIOT ACT?

    HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT OBAMA KEEPING BUSH'S TIMETABLE FOR IRAQ?

    HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT OBAMA EXPANDING BUSH'S WAR IN AFGHANISTAN?

    HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT OBAMA TRIPLING BUSH'S DEBT?

    Either Bush was right for the choices he made, or Obama is wrong. Obama is doing everything Bush did, x 10.

    Obama isn't "fixing" anything. Obama OWNS 9.9% unemployment, the failed stimulus, and record foreclosures.

  • I would like to see us withdraw from Afghanistan. There is no way in hell we will ever win that war. In the meantime, we are throwing tons of money and the lives of our citizens in the crapper.

  • Was Bush in a hurry to bring home troops??


    No, and neither is Obama.  More of the same.  Obama will have us fighting until the day he leaves office.

    Perhaps you should go with the next rotation of troops, your ideas of their actions there would change in the first few hours.

  • Actually, that's what I would prefer, too, mansosmomma, and for the same reasons. But if he's going to keep our troops over there (and this *is* his decision), he'd better "man up" and give them everything they need to win. If the generals say they need this many more troops, then he sends what they say they need, not half the number they say they need.

    He can take the money out of his other programs here at home. I'll send him a list if he needs any reminders.
