Let’ see.
A timetable for withdrawing US troops from Afghanistan-Nam.
Tough one. Let me think it over.
How about – TODAY?
We can always send the never-served right wing Obama haters, since they talk so tough. Heck, the right wing tough talking would scare the Taliban into surrendering. The right wing Republicans are sooooooo tough.

Panetta as been quoted as saying “we can’t walk backwards”. Seems like it is a good idea to walk backwards to keep from getting killed in an “insider attack” with a shot in the back!

$641 BILLION spent in this misbegotten hellhole – over 2000 of our troops dead and over 18,000 wounded – supporting and funding one of the most corrupt governments on the face of the earth. Other NATO countries are pulling their troops out and we will be left to stand alone, borrowing more money to support Karzai and his corrupt government.

Enough is enough! No concessions to Karzai – no more billions – he keeps screaming that we are attacking Afghanistan’s sovereignty, so let him go it alone.

It’s a shame for this war to have continued this long.

Wish we can learn a thing or two in war effectiveness from Israel and the likes.
