The War in Afghanistan

President Obama announced a time table for withdrawing troops from Afghanistan.  The Washington Post, no less, which usually supports the president and all things liberal and Democratic raised some questions in an editorial: The president may be sabotaging his own Afghanistan strategy – The Washington Post

So is the president declaring victory and going home?  Are we leaving just as we are making progress?  Is announcing when we’ll be leaving just an incentive for the Taliban to hunker downuntil after we’re gone?  Is this “Mission Accomplished” or helicopters on the roof of the American embassy?

Where does this leave us?

    “So where does this leave us?” Right where we should have been several years ago – leaving to go home. The objective should always have been 1. Kill (or capture) Bin-Laden, then 2. Go home – mission accomplished. It’s the KISS strategy.

    With more money to rebuild our own nation.

  • With a chance for our enemies to reestablish their brutal regime and work on plans for killing us, here at home.

    Bin Laden was just one of them. There are many more in line.

    This war will never end.

    Remember what I said the next time they kill Americans here, or abroad.
