I completely agree. However I think the war against the Taliban in Afghanistan was warranted, and since we let the enemy slip over the mountains into Pakistan, we should have been in pursuit. Now we're just back were we started 8 years ago.

OMG! Bin Laden says Obama is as bad as Bush! That means it must be true!

Since when do we listen to the opinion of a mass murdering terrorist?

Not if we withdraw from the middle east and start minding our own business. We keep inciting and inciting and inciting.
As you can see from OBL's tape today they do not care who our President is they want us to leave them alone. And I am at the point where I can see why.

The point is he could care less who is President. We are infidels.

Barry is learning that it's not as easy as he thought to make islamic terrorists like you. I guess without say it in so many words, Barry knows Bush was right and continuing his lead just makes Bush look good.

I'd like nothing more than to see these wars come to an end asap. But at the same time, if we leave Afghanistan without a stable government in place, it will become a safe haven for groups like the Taliban. We should be even more concerned about Pakistan, since they are a nuclear power. If the Taliban ever gained control of that country, the consequences could be disastrous for the western world.

When is Obama going to be charged with war crimes?
