Re: Reason to be proud of Obama?
At least he is not repeating the mistakes of Vietnam and apparently listening to the generals and not the military strategy ignorant liberals and peacenics.
Politicians like Pelosi don't know jack sh*t about military planning and strategy. They need to shut T.F.U. and let the military leadership do their jobs. If the generals say the war needs to be fought with more troops, do it. If they say we need to get out, then leave.
There is nobody on capitol hill that wants to fight a war less than the people in the Pentagon. Saying anything else is misguided. Generals were not born generals. Every general or admiral in existance started out as a privates, airmen, seamen, ensigns or 2nd Lt's. They all got their hands and boots dirty at the begining of their careers and know what it is like to be in the trenches. Nobody has a more justifiable desire to not be in a war than a soldier. But if a soldier says the battle needs to be fought, then give him the resources to fight it.
