Oba Mao has just guarantied our loss in Afghanistan. The best we can do in and for Afghanistan is legalize Marijuana. Keep a large military presence and reward Afghans for being in the Marijuana trade and kill Afghans involved in the Opium/Poppy trade. Allow the regular citizens in Afghanistan to prosper through their own hard work. Then we can bring our troops home. As it stands Obama is guilty of giving comfort to our enemies by stupidly announcing a withdrawal date.
Idiots!!! Where did he say he would withdraw all troops from Afghanistan by July 2011? Where?

a process to transfer responsibility to the Afghani's will BEGIN in 2011...not END!

I think this is a VERY smart move on the Presidents part. If you told me that instead of fighting to the last breath to get troops out of my village, all I had to do was wait for 18 months and they'd leave on their own, would I be up an at 'em the next morning, fighting like there was no tomorrow?

Heck No! I'd chill. I wouldn't risk my life to get a conclusion that will happen on it's own whether I die trying for it or not.

What a SMART way to diffuse the urgency of your enemy.

Also remember, that only the team on offense can run out the clock. If the Taliban are kep on the defensive, constantly retrenching and retreating, WE control whether or not they outwait us.

Most of you morons have NO IDEA on how to conduct military strategy. All you can do is point your racial hatred toward the President and complain about stuff you have zero comprehension of.

Joe,
You get it. All the people commenting on the fact that the enemy will retreat and wait us out, seem to think that is a bad thing.
The best tactic in a terrorist war where the enemy is co-mingled with the good guys is to get them to stop fighting and retreat from the combat areas so we can accomplish setting up a defensive position, beef up local fighters and military positions thus giving the locals a better chance of being sucessful in their OWN fighting when the enemy returns.
