Do you think we should escalate the war to end it?

That is my understanding. We are sending 30,000 troops, but will plan withdrawal in 2011... so are we escalating the war to end it? What do you think?

Quite honestly (and I'm sure someone will give me flak for this but I don't care) I wish we would pull them all out as soon as possible, and leave the Iraqis, Afghanis and Pakkis etc., all to themselves so they can cut eachother's heads off and blow eachother up or whatever else it is they want to do to eachother.

Our help is not wanted ~ so fuck 'em.

I don't see what good that will cause... I know it sounds bad, but I kinda agree with the first poster.

If we would have went after the Taliban in Afghanistan to begin with we would not have lost so many lives and maybe would have put a dent in the Taliban....

I don't like the idea of sending more troops but Obama has a real plan and an exit strategy and that is so much better than Bush's letting it stagger as our heroes died.  I will just hope that this works and that we get out no matter what.

I'm pissed at the POTUS. So pissed. I don't buy any of the crap in his speech.

My husband is going over there in a short, short while.  I just wish we would end all of this crap and let him and the other troops be home for more than a year or so. It's so not PC, but we should nuke 'em.
