I cannot post what I would like to say, I would be banned for sure.

Pray for our troops, their families, the souls who were lost 0n 9-11 and their families.

And Russia spent years and billions in this country and couldn’t win. If the rest of the world can’t help us then I don’t see us sacrificing more lives. I believe it was Mark Steyn that said today that no one can understand the horrible terrain, huge mountains and deserts. A terrible war to fight for our men.

Unfortunately our leader doesn’t know how to lead and we are screwed for three more years.

Does anyone still believe this scoundrel is not a foreign agent

Never thought for one millisecond that he was anything but.

This week in America:
Terror plots foiled in NY, CO, IL and TX.
The dipstick in the WH apologies to the world, once again for the USA.
We will leave the Afghans to the fate of the S. Vietnamese
50,000 muslims will assemble in the nation's capital to "pray"

And we're getting crap about your thread content. Morons!

He also did something on another day that was related to that case. I think a live speech. I can’t remember.

Obama Says Afghan War of Necessity

"But we must never forget. This is not a war of choice," he told the VFW crowd. "This is a war of necessity. Those who attacked America on 9/11 are plotting to do so again."

When we were more heavily into Iraq and things didn’t look good, the left said, “Afghanistan is where we should have been all along. It’s the place where U.S. force is warranted.”

The double-standards on the left are nothing if not stupefyingly breathtaking.

Obama is a seven year old ass hat clown.

Good. Bring them HOME. I don't want anymore dead or wounded troops because Democrats are too afraid to win.

Let 'em fight and fight to win, or get them the hell out of harm's way.

Yes he did.

He lies.

Not only does al-quaida win but the mere thought of those that have died there’s family thinking they did it for no real end game cause.

Well, if that’s what he’s going to do, better now than years of status quo. Wonder who the President that cleans up this mess will be.

No matter how you feel about the war, few are going to sit still for settling for an L to a country that doesn’t possess an air force or a tank.

They may have a lot more than that if AQ takes over here and in Pakistan. A lot more.
