    I’ve been asking this on Twitter.

    Obama has been “collecting information” over the past month or so after his commanders, the ones on the ground that Candidate Obama said should have been listened to, asked for a surge of troops to mount a counter-insurgency strategy similar to the one that was successful in Iraq.

    During this month of “consultation,” more US troops have died than in any other month in the history of the war in Afghanistan.

    It’s time to decide. How many more meetings does it take? Either tell us what it’s going to take to succeed… or get the hell out. But if you do get the hell out, you better tell us how we’re going to keep Afghanistan from again becoming a launching ground for attacks on America (i.e. USS Cole, African Embassy bombings, WTC I and WTC II).

    As was likely the case in Iraq, we should probably just take a step back and look at one thing.

    Follow the money.

    Someone is making money off this current strategy. I don’t know who it is, but that’s the only thing that makes sense.

  3. I agree with Little Bill…this is all about money people. It has nothing to do with administrations. It has to do with money that is being made off this war and who is making it. I can go on and on about this…I hate to dash the hopes of my liberal friends who think that Obama is a change. Thus, I will stay silent.

    “Congress — especially congressional Democrats — was outraged earlier this month (Sept) when it was disclosed that, apparently on orders from Vice President Dick Cheney, the CIA for eight years concealed from Congress a program to assassinate the leaders of Al Qaeda, starting with Osama bin Laden. ”

    I am not an advocate of the USA sticking its nose in everywhere politicians think needs “policing” but if you are going to, there are two ways – small hit squads, or full out war! Enough of the messy nonsense that drags on forever.
