    In his latest video,Aymen al-Zawahiri,Bin Laden's right hand man claims victory in Afghanistan is very close. He also asked his fellow Muslims to come to Afghanistan to fight the Americans and offer monetary support. Things don't seem to be going very well for us over there in my opinion. I think it's fair to ask if Zawahiri is right. Are we losing Afghanistan? I would like to hear from others on this question. Thanks.

    Al Queda won the day the Great Moron was elected President.

    Yea they could be waiting us out. This President has announced that we will be out of both Afghanistan & Iraq by next year. Personally i'm very skeptical of these promises. I tend to think Afghanistan & Iraq will be a South Korea scenario in the end. I guess we'll see though. 2011 will tell the story.

    Five more soldiers slaughtered yesterday and one captured by the Taliban. It does look like we are losing Afghanistan.

    If the Afghanis can't police themselves after ten years, they're not worth the effort.

    Fuck 'em, time to come home.

    Afghainstan has never been ours to win.
    That has never been the military strategy there or in Iraq . We could "win" in 20 minutes.
    The strategy is to get the Afghans to maintain their own country.
    And they won't because they are religous in all aspects of life, uneducated, illiterate, lazy and corrupt.

    Yep. Some just considered bombing Afghanistan and Iraq into rubble and leaving them to rot in their own garbage....but we have more compassion than Muslims so we tried to reform them...so much for that.

    It's not hard to believe because we currently have a President who's afraid to win for fear that it will anger Muslims.

    It also seems Obama fears Fox News and Glenn Beck more then murderers cutting off people's heads on our Southern borders or terrorism in our cities. The Shirley Sherrod debacle proves that.

    I figure all it will take is one massive attack with hundreds of US personnel dying and Obama will be pulling us out. Problem is somebody has to die for Obama to get his wish....a complete pullout of Afghanistan and Iraq.

    I say do it now before any more die. As of yesterday 70 service members have died so far this month. Get us out now....because Mr. Obama...you don't seem to want to win....and the enemy knows it.

    Same strategy as Bush used is what we have now across the board there.
