Oh, I don't know, this small country often referred to as the United States of America.

Perhaps you've heard of it ?

Yes, sending 30,000 more troops will win you the war.

This increase will bring the total number of troops to 101,000 by the summer of 2010.

I'll stop the war, I'll close down Guantanomo, I'll overturn don't-ask-don't-tell .... he is now zero for three. Turning out to be just one of the rest of them? Not you too Obama!

R.I.P. America

America is going down the tubes. Our economy is in ruins and amplifying the Afghan war will do nothing but lead to more deaths (Afghan and American) and increased waste of funds.

I happen to think that President Obama's decision is a prudent one.

Just as long as it is not your own blood being shed, right?

Conscription came to an end in the 70s, therefore all duties carried out by U.S. troops are of a voluntary nature.

It isn't prudent, far from it, just another piece in the puzzle.

umm stopping the war cant happen without sending more troops to Afganistan, pulling all the troops will not stop the war it will start a whole new war with Taliban taking over Afganistan, sending more troops is the only opition to stop the war, Bush and the GOP rushed Afganistan just to get to Saddam, Obama is now left with cleaning up that mess and doing this right.

Gitmo is in the process of closing, cant just close it over night

don't-ask-don't-tell is not the #1 priority right now...the plate is full with more important things that will effect a every american, not just 3% to 5%...health care, cap and trade, 2 wars, new transportation bill, he has 3 years + another term, he'll get to it.
