Obama Won't Make Afghan Decision Before Thanksgiving, Aides Say

Obama Won't Make Afghan Decision Before Thanksgiving, Aides Say - FOXNews.com

Wow our hero's will feel much better about hearing that....hopefully they all stay alive to wait till our president will make up his mind or will there be another campaign or of course health care needs to be put down our throats after the turkey!

"You guys make a pretty good photo op," the president reportedly joked with the 1,500 troops at Osan Air Base....not really funny!

Important decisions that risks thousands of lives should not be rushed. Sorry.

I'm also sure that if he rushed the decision like your hero Bush, you would be complaining about that too.

You're about as insincere a group as you could get. Try going outside and getting some fresh air or something.

Well said. If you wish to know what rushing into a war does to our troops just look at the first 5 years of Iraq.. Lets hope that Obama makes the right decision.

you republicons are the biggest group of whiners I've ever seen. He's already doubled the troops in Afganistan in his first 9 months in office.

it costs $250,000 per year to keep one soldier in Afganistan.

and all you can do is whine about health care and it being deficit neutral, what about the wars and military spending?

we spend more on our military than the rest of the world combined, 5 times as much as China alone.

Wow, $250k. According to Saggy's logic every troop deployed creates three jobs then. Go Obama!

Things were so much better in the good ol' Bush/Cheney days when the decider would launch an invasion on a whim and "faulty intelligence".

This doesn't surprise me at all. Barry Hussein is a typical clueless liberal liberal lawyer who has zero respect for military personnel past, present or future. He wants to milk all he can from big government, continue to decimate the moral, economic and social fiber of the U.S., and have zero regard for any man or woman in uniform serving America.

Obama won't make a decision on Afghanistan until after healthcare is passed. Everything for this guy is calculated to advance his own ideological interest, not for the country's best interest.

Only a fellow warrior can make jokes like that.
