Skeptical Dems resign themselves to Obama war plan - Yahoo! News But instead, they have to "resign" themselves to the plan set in motion. Seems like they win the battle, so to speak, as our brilliant military minds have concluded that we will tell them when we're coming, how many are coming and when they will be leaving. Why don't we just NOT go? What good is it doing us to give the enemy ALL the information they need to make their plans to defeat the infidels? Obama has killed no birds with one stone. He got support from the right for sending troops and he got support from the left for bringing them home in a year and half. By the way, a year and a half is not nearly enough time to beat back the taliban, much less teach the Afghans how to protect themselves. But it was a very well delivered speech. You can at least credit the silver tongued master for his ability to read well. I just wish it made sense.
