ASHINGTON: The Obama Administration has declined to set a deadline for withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, arguing that the situation there is different from that of Iraq and 9/11 plotters are still holed up in the Af-Pak region and planning attack against the US.

"We have a different situation in Afghanistan. It is actually the place that - Afghanistan and Pakistan - where the folks who attacked us on 9/11 are holed up and plotting against us still," David Axelrod, Senior Advisor to the US President, told the NBC news channel in an interview.

So where are all the war protestors? Where is code pink, etc? Gone, that’s where they are. They were never protesting the war, they were just protesting against Bush with the wars as a pretext.

Of course. Cindy was just following her marching orders from Medea, who was following orders from Fidel and Chavez.

Have you heard her name once since Bush left office?

This may sound cold but I'm beginning to wonder if O’bozo wants as many American Troops killed and maimed as it takes to turn the citizens against going into any war in the future?

True enough.

It’s a Quagmire.

The war in Afghanistan is already lost.

And Mr. Obama is sending in tens of thousands more troops.

So are the anti-war protestors going to be running around carrying signs that say OBAMA = HITLER, OBAMA IS THE REAL TERRORIST, pictures of Obama as a vampire with blood dripping off his fangs and will they hang Obama in effigy?

NO? I didn’t think so.

“Then how about letting the troops take the gloves off, Obama?”

They could give a rat's behind about our military. They are all about Miranda rights for terrorists and don't shoot unless you call for approval and are shot at first. The thing that makes you the most sick is the rising numbers of dead and wounded of recent. The result of the Hack in Chief's military policy.

We need a time table for the withdrawl of US troops from Afghanistan. We just can't blindly send money to Afghanistan for community organizing!

WITHDRAW THE TROOPS NOW FROM AFGHANISTAN!!

( sarc. off)

I know some military members who were in Iraq. They cannot stand our govt and feel terrible when they see people enlisting these days. Like you said, the government just does not care.

The American people care about them. I believe that alone is what continues to give them the heart to do what they do.
