  •  Cheney never had a strategy. Why should Obama? (1+ / 0-)

    Cheney never had a strategy for Afghanistan when Cheney's former best friend for life, Bin Laden, bombed NY.  Cheney's eight year blunder in Afghanistan, Cheney's eight year failure to get Bin Laden is why US better stop and figure out why US is in Afghanistan.

    To create a democratic state? Nope. No way that is going to happen.

    To get the Taliban? Why? Taliban never attacked the US.

    To get Bin Laden and al-Qaeda? Bingo.  Oh, Bin Laden is in Pakistan trying to get the nukes Iraq never had?  OK send in 10,000 US troops for the specific mission of getting Bin Laden where ever he is.

    As for Afghanistan, where Bin Laden isn't, pull US troops back to nice safe bases from which to support the strategy of getting Bin Laden.  Provide weapons and money to liberal Afghans to fight for their country if they want to.

    Once we get Bin Laden, get out, eliminate US oil imports and don't worry about Middle East other than to support liberal, Western values in any Middle Easterner who wants that for his/her country.
