    The problem wasn't going into Afghanistan, the problem is once the U.S. went in in how does it get out?

    The getting out should have been thought about before the going in. The objectives of the war should have been clearly defined and then the war plan drawn up to meet those objectives. Nearly 10 years later and we're still trying to define victory (exit) conditions.

      I think the lack of plans for how to get out of wars is another aspect of Congress avoiding their responsibility to declare war.

      While I did support entrance into Afgh., I would have preferred that it be done like a criminal investigation backed up by a small force/SEAL team type of action ...eh, B*sh, that fucker, he was never serious about getting OBL anyway.  Bunch of filthy neocons were determined to have their Excellent Iraq Adventure come hell or high water...
