Didn't bother to watch the video-foreign policy,especially war related decisions, should not be based on public opinion. If the spineless politicians had looked at the facts instead, they would have stood up to Bush and maybe the Iraq debacle would have been avoided.
whatever the results are they will slanted to meet CNN's agenda.
Afghanistan is, has always been, and will forever remain a corrupt
disaster. It is very sad to continue to waste american lives in that
Pakistan is where the action should be. Politically, militarily if
needed and much harder and tougher than ever before. Diplomacy
is good, but it does not work in a number of places in the world.
NO to sending more troops.
Bring the troops home President Obama .
I do not support the President's decision of sending additional troops to Afghanistan. I am a Viet Nam Veteran and I also voted for the President. We have no strategy that will provide us victory in that country. It is a waste of the treasury and human lives. We have to just face the fact that will not be victorious and move on. There is nothing written any where that says we shall be victorious in every military confrontation that we pursue.
It just sickens me to no end to see the enormous sums of money that we spend on war. It would be great to see if our leaders would spend that kind of money on domestic issues that we have in this country. We have a high unemployment rate. The same is true regarding crime. We need to build new schools and our highways and bridges are falling apart. An agressive effort needs to be taken to re-establish the manufacturing base that was out sourced from this country. Until some of these issues are addressed the USA will continue its free fall to God knows where.
