It is about time. Obama has left our military hanging, showing his weakness to Al Queda and the Taliban. This has been waiting for an answer for months. He should have had a plan in works at all times. He should have strategies in place at all times.

Wednesday night party nights at the White House, basketball games, golf games, the Olympics all didn't have to take a back seat to our troops.

Shades of Vietnam. Let's finish the job this time and bring our hero troops home. Annilate ( pardon my spelling) those worthless cowards now. U.S.A.F. vet (SAC)Strategic Air Command 1965-1969
