    Thank you George W. Bush. The gift that keeps on giving.

    Bush, Jr has been out of office for more than four years, so it’s ridiculous that the liberals still try to blame him for this war.


    And it is unfortunate that the anti-War Obama is a native born Kenyan, and so is ineligible to be Commander in Chief. If he WERE Commander in Chief, he could order all the troops home, but he isn’t, so he also has no share in the blame.

    Good Heaven NO!! Not the incredible theories of the birthplace deniers again!,BR>


    Besides which, at the peak of such military activity under the last administration, there were well over 220,000 boots-on-the-ground troops in both Afghanistan and Iraq. Now, for all practical purposes, there are none left in Iraq, and we are now in the process of drawing down the number of ground troops in Afghanistan from a high of about 90,000 to a low of some 60,000 by the end of this month. And even those will be drawn down to only about 34,000 by the end of February 2014, and effectively (like Iraq) zero by the end of 2014.






    Further, (and NOT because he does not have the authority to do so) the current president has deferred to the generals in charge, the actual numbers of ground troops to be drawn down in Afghanistan. And it is they that would hold up such troop withdrawals until after the “fighting season” ends this fall!!!!

    “…The Republicans never would have brought it up.” This is utter nonsense and your grammar and punctuation (not surprisingly) stink.

    If you think braindead08’s comment leaves a lot to be desired, wait until you see bd01 thru 07.

    Republicans never made the claim that the Bamster was born in Kenya, the Birther nuts did. Unforturnately, a very serious point got ignored in this controversy: it’s quite possible, based on indisputable facts, that Obama leagally lost his US citizenship while a youth and that it was never restored properly. And there is plenty of evidence that he was presenting himself sometime in his teens as “a foreign exchange student from Indonesia”. The idea that he was born in Kenya is goofy.

    Bush allowed this war to happen. Who, then, are we to blame?

    As for the President’s place of birth, what proof do you offer?

    @braindead08

    Am I wrong, or has George W. Bush been living a nice retired life in Texas for the last five years?


    The current CIC could make some major changes to bring our soldiers home today, but he is in charge (NOT Bush) and he’s not doing it.

    I keep forgetting, the Afghan War is as justified as the war against the Nazis. Just as Hitler declared war on the US, Afghanistan declared war on 9/11/‘01, and the US MUST persist until it obtains an unconditional surrender. Every single death in Afghanistan was absolutely necessary. Obama, like Bush, Jr before him, is only doing what is absolutely Right.


    Every one of America’s allies sent at least a token force to assist in this war, so support for it as fully justified is almost universal, except for a few wing-nuts like Mr Rall.


    Mr Rall’s problem is that he actually went to Afghanistan and saw for himself, instead of reading the New York Times philosophy column that non-experts CANNOT believe their own eyes, they must rely on what the experts tell them, and all the experts agree that the Afghanistan War is 110% justified and necessary.


    Had Mr Rall been sensible, he would have gone embedded. Sitting in a posh hotel conference room, he would have heard the top experts explain why unconditional victory over Afghanistan is far more important that it was over the Nazis. We could have, had it proved necessary, been able to live with the Nazis, but NOT with the Taliban. But would Mr Rall go embedded and learn from experts? NO. He went and saw for himself that the experts were not being altogether truthful. How dare he? Obama, like Bush, Jr, is doing the absolute right thing in Afghanistan. Just ask the official experts, and NEVER look for yourself.

    For all that this country proclaims to love its veterans, we’ve been shortchanging them for decades.

    In his mind the Democrats created the birthers, the deathers, and the Tea Party.

    Afghanistan did not attack us. They never declared war on us. The attack on them became an occupation.
