    FINALLY, President Obama has made a decision to send the boots on the ground the help they requested.

    Michael Moore is disappointed in President Obama, strongly implying in an open letter to him that BHO has broken his promise (funny, seems to me BHO just took way too long to keep his promise). Moore is promoting a site calling for a protest of Obama tonight at West Point.

    I won't be protesting the President tonight, though. I hope few do. He did the right thing, horribly belatedly, but still the right thing.

    However, I defend his right to speak out. He is welcome to publicize his assedness to the country. As a matter of fact, I would positively encourage it.

    Moore is a freaking moron. But he, like all Americans has the right to protest the deployment of American forces

    Right now I think I would join in that protest.

    I don't see the point anymore....as long as Obama refuses to win it.

    Obama campaigned on bringing the troops home, he is going to be targeted for criticism on many fronts. I don't think sending so many troops is a great idea but I will wait and see how it goes.

    From Iraq, not Afghanistan which was the 'good war', according to his campaign.

    Both wars are a waste of life and money.

    If we concentrate on securing our borders, air land and sea, tell me what threat does Iraq, Afghanistan or Al Qaeda pose to us?

    Little to none is the answer. Certainly not enough to justify the cost both human and monetary.
