    The President's strategy for the Afghanistan conflict as laid out in his March of 2009 speech has been, up to this point, a dismal failure. Obama promised to listen to his ground commanders but what he failed to tell them was they would be ignored as well. Now there is a split in our great nation at the top of the chain of command that the entire world is watching with great interest. Kind of like when a shark "smells" blood in the water, nations around the world are looking in our direction. Some will see this as an opportunity to take advantage of our weak President. Is this going to be 4 years of Carter redux?

    What are your opinions on this.

    It is October 6, 2009. Barack Obama has kept us safer than George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.

    As for Afghanistan, we need to redraw or demand more countries pull their share and put in troops into Afghanistan. One of the best ways to go about this is to give Japan their military back so they can help us.

    I believe that since you were willing to put up with Bush's Non-strategy in Afghanistan for the past 7 years, you and your partisan hack friends should STFU and let Obama handle this the right way.

    THIS coming from a boob who voted for Bush twice AND supported his invasion and subsequent occupation of Iraq, while he threw a few thousand of our finest into Afghanistan with no plan....no credibility for you.

    We kicked ass in Iraq? What did we gain? What did we win? Did we get Osama Bin Laden in Iraq? Why did we invade Iraq when all of the 9/11 hijackers came from Saudi Arabia? Did Dubya and DICK both fail geography?

    Here is a perfect example of Obama's failed strategy in Afghanistan:

    Time Magazine 20Jul09 "Starting Anew"
    McChrystal: "My metric is not enemy killed, not ground taken: it's how much governance we've got."

    Last week.
    Obama's order to McChrystal: "Withdraw from outlying areas and stay in the big cities."

    THIS EXACT STRATEGY is why the Russians lost in Afghanistan and why Obama will lose in Afghanistan if he doesn't pay attention to the military boots on the ground.

    Fuck the leftie kooks....we need to win and LEAVE!

    OK, General....what constitutes a "win" in Afghanistan?
