    Call it political but I don't see any reason to support his attack on a non important entity in that country. All we have been told so far is that it is a taliban stronghold which could mean a lot of things. Is it crucial for an overall plan of success? I think if we don't get a better reason for this action than just "its a taliban stronghold" then I wonder what motives were behind it.

    Are you serious?? "Its a Taliban stronghold" is not enough? What else do you want? Untapped oil? WMD's?

    I'm sure there are a lot of those scattered throughout afghanastan but why attack this one. What strategic advantage does it have that demands we attack it. Is it a part of an overall plan somewhere or did Obama just think it up this weekend when he saw his pole numbers go down?

    Wow... do you even follow what is going on in Afghanistan? Or are you one of those shits who disagrees with any and everything that comes from the White House?

    You say "I'm sure" as if it is an assumption. Do you even know "FOR sure"?? Or do you just go on your gut instinct?

    If he decided to NOT conduct the surge in Afghanistan would you be bitching then? I bet you would.

    You really do fit the mold of the typical teabagger... I hope you guys stay around, I love the entertainment value of it all. Thanks:thup:

    How about the military commanders on the ground, are you supporting their actions in Afghanistan?

    it was more of a rhetorical question. His/her name answers it for me.
