I am very upset with Obama. Obama lies and muddles and tries to backpedal everything. The confused Obama said in March of 2009 that the “good war” in Afghanistan would be fought until the very end. WHY ALL THE DRAMA? Must Obama act so politicsl with everything? I guess Obama was hoping the left in his party would come along and act like patriotic Americans. Why are Democrats so anti-American?

It appears that President Obama’s strategy is to discuss possibilities, probabilities,and various strategies before sending our men and women into harms way. Whether he opts to send the troops as requested by McChrystal or not send as many as asked for, I will have appreciated the thoughtful manner in which the decision was made. I may not agree with his decision, but at least I will know that he and his team will have discussed all the possibilities and options. Unlike many anxious “HAWKS,” I don’t see the need to rush soldiers to their death, or life-long injuries, especially into a country that is still backwards, tribal, and not really interested in changing its behavior to exist in a peaceful way in the world.
My thanks to the President for taking his time to finalize this major decision.
