    Why is Obama keeping the war in Afghanistan ongoing? By all accounts, it goes against his stated ideology.

    The answer is simpler than I realized.

    It actually helps to progress his agenda.

    1. He can blame our huge deficits on Afghanistan (never mind if it's not true).
    2. Mayor Booker gave a speech at the DNC, stating that wealth distribution during a war is 'patriotic.'

    I don't know that Republicans are clamoring to end it. But they haven't made the stink that Dems did pre 2008. The subject is not Republicans though Mister Spinster. The subject is why Obama is using American soldiers as props.

    What president didn't when there was a conflict?

    I'm not saying it's right by any stretch of the imagination... But it obviously works with the voter base.

    IF there is something that isn't clear about the second part... I can't help you. I'm not sure how that's confusing at all.

    That's seriously your answer? It's okay to use soldiers as political pawns?

    Hey...................fuckwit..................he's promised to bring all the soliders out of Afghanistan by the year 2014, with all combat troops being gone by the end of this year.

    John McStupid (yeah.............the old fucker with a blonde bimbo for a daughter) wanted to keep us in there for the next 100 years.

    And oh yeah..................by the way..................he also wants us to go to war in 6 different countries right NOW.

    Wanna talk about wealth redistribution? Let's talk about the Ryan budget.

    You are SERIOUSLY fucking deluded.
