I'm Quite disgusted. I thoght by putting Obama in office we would get completely ouy of Iraq and Afganistan. Accept the fact that we lost these wars 4000 dead over20000 wounded. 800 Billion Dollars. And why do you never hear about so-called enemy casualties?

Obama's plan has never been to pull out of Afghanistan in the near future. Even during his campaign his plan was to put additional troops in Afghanistan. We started losing the war there after we completely dominated because of the distraction the war in Iraq brought. Furthermore, Obama's Iraq plan during his campaign was never to just pull everyone straight out. There was a 16 month goal to get out of there if everything went perfectly, but noone really expects that. Hopefully sooner than later, though.

Pulling straight out of either country would be disasterous for everyone. Whether or not we should have gone in to either country (I'm for the war in Afghanistan, against the war in Iraq personally) or whether or not we're winning or losing are pointless debates at this point. We're there, we can't just snatch troops out, and we HAVE to win eventually. There's no other option. If we lose, the entire region and our credibility as a nation are completely screwed for a LOOOOOONG time.
