    Gen. McChrystal is gone. He had to deal with an article 88. Shame shame, but I am curious if there is anyone out there who disagree's with the President's choice with Gen Petraeus.

    Personally, I think the decision was brilliant on so many levels.

    WTF--General Petraeous--literally took down Iraq--but of course DID NOTvote for Obama--and Obama could have easily put Petraeous in charge of Afganistan.

    But hell NO, Obama had to pick a general that actually voted for him--aka this moron President.

    Soooooooo no matter what, Obama is wrong...Gotcha. Honestly, I dont remember too many of you righty's screaming for Petraeous to run afhanistan when good ol big mouth was appointed.

    Anyway, back on point, any comments on his pick NOW? Please try to answer without any kind of diversion or rerailment attempts please....

    as i told your moroness yesterday....obama did make the right choice, however, he had no choice...there was only petraeus and no one else...

    why you have to create numerous posts and threads about this is mind boggling....why don't you just write private love letters to obama in your spare time, don't torture us with your obamasession

    Obama still sucks on Iraq and Afganistan, regardless of generals.

    We are still frickiing fighting, killiing, and getting killed over there.

    Was just supposed to be a six month tour in iraq... Hmm kinda like Gilligans Island?

    I think we could use some of that money spent there back here on the homefront. Reduce the defecit if nothing else.

    I agree...time to start getting the hell out.

    We are approaching 10 years in Afghanistan and they are still no closer to a stable government. Sooner or later you have to cut your losses and let the chips fall where they may.

    If we can't stabilize the situation in ten years, what makes us think we can do it in 20 or 30?

    you're fucking stupid zona...i don't live on this board, so get your panties out of bunch if you don't immediately get a reply (20 minutes...loser)

    i don't need a LINK...if you honestly think obama had any other truly viable choice you are bigger idiot than i thought....there isn't a single person high up in the ranks or in afghanistan that has suggested anyone else

    in reality, IMO, there is no other choice....but i know you can't think for yourself and require others to tell you waht to think apparently can't accept the fact that someone formed an opinion without a "link"
