Sorry, I'm a little confused. Is this pullout like the ones promised by other democrat presidents when we were in Vietnam? You know, the kind of pullout where we keep sending more and more troops there? Also, why is the Star Tribune and other media less upset about our casualties now that Obama is in office? Seems like they deserve more prominence in the paper than which polician got a dui years ago or who caught a big fish. Right?

Given the lack of progress in Afghanistan why are Sen. Klobuchar and Franken not saying all is lost and we need to bring the troops home? Where is Rep. Ellison on this? How about Senators Reid, Boxer, Levin, Kerry, et al? I remember clearly them saying things were lost in Iraq when President Bush was in office and the conditions seem about the same. Are they having a hard time taking on a Democrat president? Simply cowards--they don't have the courage or fortitude. Just like the big anti-war movement--there are no protests scheduled, other than a few WAMM members who are always picketing near 50th and France. Most of these folks are not anti-war, they were anti-Bush. More cowards!

Coward's can not see any value in a conflict for any reason. If a coward could see value in a conflict it might cause them to consider there lack of character, or even worse thinking about acting for the greater good. It's much easier to sit on your fat butt and criticize, devalue the sacrifice of others to soothe over your conscience.

Nice of our soldier boys to make sure the opium dealers can ship their product to the nations. Remember back in the 1970's when the CIA was shipping heroin into the USA in soldiers coffins. History repeats its self. Dark days are coming to America due to our transgressions. Repent and pray for Gods grace through faith in Jesus Christ.

Did you know that 7000 Taliban were flown out of Afghanistan befor the war remember they were our allies against the Russians. The war was/is an elaborate fabrication. Hmmm why havn't we won a war since WW 2 and why is there always a East and West Germany or a North and South Korean and Vietnam? Donald Rumsfield sold Saddam Hussien chemical weapons to be used against Iran. We funded and supported Emmanuel Noriega of Panama. We overthrew the only democratically elected government in Iran in 1953 and put the Sha in his place because the leader there wanted to keep 25% of the oil revenue for improving the country.

Nice try, rewriting history. It was Bush who went into Afghanistan after 9/11
