    I ask you all, how in the hell do you combine a troop increase with an exit strategy?
    President Obama has done this before with the Iraq campaign. There is no logic in President Obama going to West Point, to give a speech about a major troop increase, and then also to discuss an exit strategy.

    This exit strategy is just what the Taliban wants to hear. This will only embolden the Taliban, and put our troops in greater danger.
    American forces have not won the war in Afghanistan, so why even discuss an exit strategy now?. This sends the wrong message to the Taliban Terrorist, and other Terrorists throughout the world.
    This Obama strategy may backfire on U.S. Army forces now in Afghanistan.

    This out right capitulation by our President makes America looks weak to the rest of the world.

    President Obama has it all wrong.

    An exit strategy should have been part of the first deployment plan. Don't know what's so hard to understand about that.

    Ideally, you go in with a specific plan of what you hope to achieve in quantifiable objectives, a plan and a timetable of how to achieve the goals, and a plan for bringing people back home when the objectives are met.

    But we should be bringing everyone home ASAP - not sending more imho.

    Its called an exit strategy. I know you righty's have no clue what that is and haven't heard about one in the last eight years...but this president actually thought about it.

    I cant fucking believe you righty's are actually bitching about an exit plan. You people are amazing. hacks.

    If you fight a war, the 'exit strategy' should be to win it, anything else is stupid.

    Please tell me you didn't REALLY mean to ask the question in your first sentence. If you did, then you are too stupid to understand anything about military and/or strategy, so attempting to explain it to you would be a waste of everyone's time...

    I respectfully disagree. However, did I mention how much I like your avatar?

    Yes, I understand your point, but is this not something that is kept classified with U.S. Army generals?, should a President and other politicians be discussing this in public, and
    with the news media?, does this exit strategy not embolden, and or help our enemy?.
