    of course, it would be nice for DAMNocrats to read history once in a while, especially re Afghanistan, that is, if any of them can tear themselves away from their corporate masters.

    •  He's our President (0+ / 0-)

      If you really are a Dem then you give him the benefit of trying to achieve what he said he'd try to achieve while campaigning.  You also don't call him an asshole, for any reason, but certainly not for having taken over a war 80% of Americans demanded and neglected by the previous admin for 8 years.  Pres Obama had only 2 choices here: Add troops and try to make something of the situation or get out and be the President who lost.  Choice 2 would have gone well for us...not.
      I'm rather sick of Americans who don't have the stomach to actually fight a war that they demanded we engage.  History shows us Afghan is unwinnable?  Shouldn't we have looked at history in Nov of 2001?  It's a bit late in the game, now.

        I, and probably a few others here, did not ever support this fail invasion. Nevah.

          But we lost.  An overwhelming loss at that.  Now Americans must buy what they broke and we who didn't want to enter the shop must grit our teeth.

      •  I was talking about the rethug! Got it? (0+ / 0-)

        Although Obama and the dems need to take fully into account the history of Afghanistan and its 'conquerors!'  heh heh heh
        And I did not call him an asshole... yet.  I will, if I choose and it is warranted.  You don't like?  TFB!
        Choice 1 is not going well and NEVER WILL!!!
        Have you enlisted and demanded to go?  If not, STFU! about anyone's stomach.
        It is never late in the game.
        America has been turned into a big souffle, all light and airy and a nice looking crust... on the outside.
        Afghanistan will be the oven door SLAMMING, and the souffle collapses in a broken mess.
