    Let's just lock this thread now and save the moderators the time and hassle of having to check it every two seconds.
  6. As the parent of a Camp Lejeune Marine, it's hard for me to be apolitical right now.

    I dunno, let's see if the adults around here can play nice.

    As for the new plan, seems to me Obama is just doing exactly what he said all during the campaign that he'd do: Double down. Obama should have couched his announcement as "I'm keeping a campaign promise."

    I think the plan might just work cause I have faith in our military leadership to fight a modern, tactical war there.

    How could it possibly be apolitical?

    I'll wait for the Afghanistan 2.0.1 upgrade, thanks.

    I was going to post something else, but since no one else has taken the bait, I'll just say good luck to Lone Star Scribe.

    I hope your son remains safe, is proud of his service, and (continues to) make you proud of him.

    I've got a cousin serving in the Army over there. It's what he wanted to do, so I'm not going to shake my fist at the machine about it. He's due back in March, God willing.

    If there's a good reason for us to be there, then by all means, let's be there. If Osama is gettable, then we should get him.

    I'm going to get my leftist credentials revoked for this, but I think he's doing what he has to do. I dunno if it's going to work. But yeah, I think we need to fight the Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
    I hate the fact that we have a terrible partner in the Afghan government. I hate that so many people have died needlessly in Iraq.
    But forget the whole thing and go home? No. Not an option, or at least, not a real-world option, in my opinion.
