General Petraeus knows that the word ''victory ''ís not used by the commander in chief obama and that US troops can continue chasing the Taliban from south to east and from east to north until the end of time with no gain for America. The Taliban terrorists under their leader Haqqani enjoy the safe heaven'' under the hypocrite and lying Pakistani government and its Inteligence ISI that provide them with information about US troops movements in the South and the East of Afghanistan. During the last decade of US and NATO fighting the Taliban, they kept moving from the south to eastern Afghanistan where they feel safer along the Pakistani border. US troops refrained from fighting in the east of Afghanistan to appease the Pakistani regime. Nevertheless, pushing the Taliban from the South to the east of Afghanistan and then back south in the spring means that US troops did not address the problem with the Pakistani terrorist regime that arm and train the Taliban and al Qaida in Pakistan. Without dealing with the evil anti-American Pakistani regime and the evil Iranian regime that provides lethal missiles to the Taliban that kill scores of our US troops, the terrorist will continue their moving from one side of Afghanistan to the other, waiting for US troops to go home. What a waste of our US troops precious lives together with trillions of dollars of the empty US treasury coffers without gaining anything for the American people. Without threatening the Pakistani and Iranian regimes with military bombing of their terrorist training, missile and nuke plants, US will lose the war and will be ousted from the Middle East that will fall under the Iranian regime Caliphate and their Mozlem terrorist organizations. Its time to tell the truth to the American people'rather than stories about moving fighting from south to east and back to the south next spring.

I'm afraid these soldiers are dying for no freaking reason. Pull them out and let Taliban do whatever it wants as long as they don't allow Al Qaida use their territory as terrorist base. Let's see how will Karzai deal with Taliban without NATO.
