Obama plans to see the war in Afghanistan through.

A tougher war than that in Iraq, Barack is intent on defeating Al Qaeda. Sending thousands more American military men & women into battle.

Democrats don't have a problem spending, but, I thought they had a problem with killing.

Its not killing. Obama just refers to them as late-term abortions and sleeps well at night.

Here we go again, wasn't Afghanistan apart of the discussion during the campaign for both Obama and McCain? Bush has often stated that we had to win in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Now that its Obama you have a problem. The Taliban is in Afghanistan, this is where they trained. You right wingers were consistent in stating that Bush kept the US safe because he went after the Taliban, well the problem with that is, they are not in IRAQ.

No matter what, you right wingers are going to complain, but bottom line both Republicans and Democrats have been talking about stablizing and building up military presence in Afghanistan for years.

Remember 9/11? We're finally going after those who were responsible. And finally, i believe we need to protect our boarders at home, but unfortunately he has to finish the job over there.

Generalizations are dumb.
Some democrats love killing, just like I'm sure the occasional republican doesn't love it.

And if you paid attention during the campaign, you'd notice that Obama planned to do this very thing (increase troop levels in afghanistan).
Where's the news here?

Subtle trolling?

President Obama makes a much better warrior than the former chimperor. Still, Obama's going to have to define success before he gets too far along.

kicking DOD around has been found to be a big job, its an anaconda that has wrapped itself around DC. the the debting has surpassed the war, the debt is the issue not the war. its getting way out of control.
