Discussion in 'Afghanistan' started by eagleseven, Dec 1, 2009.
It is official. Your thoughts?
I think his top general whom he picked told Obama he wanted 60,000 and a bare minimum of 40,000...do what does Obama do?
GO FUCK YOURSELF
He wants to get the job done and set a time frame of depature yet doesn't give his forces what they adequately need to do the job effiecently
And you were expecting an Obama administrtion that is increasingly disassociating itself from this reality to do much else precisely why?
I'd like to see a more clearly defined objectives, milestones and exit strategy.
We need to also apply milestones to the Afghans....if they are not met, we pull out
yeah right. Have we left Iraq?
We're leaving in 18 months no matter what isn't enough of an exit strategy for you?
Many people seemed to love troop surges not long ago.
I hope it works. I don't know if it will...but I hope it does. For the sake of our men over there.
Obama said troop withdrawls start in July 2011. There is no end date, except he said ten years is too long.
I thought it was a good teleprompter read, but I don't think it's a good idea to advertise that we are leaving in 18 months. That fact alone would not cause any of the sane Afghani's to join the cause and support the defense of their country, not will it instill confidence in our allies, and if I were a member of the Taliban I would just sit back and relax wait until the U.S leaves and go in then.
