Taking military pressure off gihadists in their home regions is not a good idea. Neither is a Vietnam-style escalation to prop up a corrupt regime. The only answer left is for NATO to be the harasser of the Taliban element, not the occupier of Afghanistan -- saw a cool site; Balkingpoints ; awesome satellite view of earth

It's a snake oil salesman dream & ultimate narcissist "challenge" to be able to attempt selling US troop deaths, Billion$ more debt, and no end in sight as a "Good Thing" or the "Right War" to a wary public that has had enough in 8 long yrs of combing the same patch of worthless sand.

Obama is just the type of Maggot that relishes this "Salesmanship" challenge.

interesting comment. Do you have other reasons for sending us to that site, as well?

well, I supported FJK and LBJ in 1060, though I preferred Stevenson and Humphrey, but could not fail to oppose Nixon. I supported LBJ becasue I could not fail to oppose Goldwater. I supported Gene McCarthy in the l968 primaries (worked as a volunteer in Indiana and Wisconsin, and Iowa) because I could not fail to oppose LBJ because of the escalation of the Vietnam war. I supported Obama in 2008, and would support a peace candidate against him in the 2012 primaries, if it were a class act type like Russ Feingold, and not some nutty egomaniac with no gravitas.(like Lamont or Nader) Are you pro-peace - or just anti-Obama? would you rather have war so you have more excuse to trash him, or would you rather work effectively jsut to oppose too much escalation? I am certain that laughing liberal hates Obama more than he loves peace, but I don't think I know you well enough to suspect you of that. Yur comment was cryptic - care t be more specific? Do you just want to get folks stirred up against Obama, on whatever grounds, or do you opppose the escalation? and if you oppose it, why not act effectively against it now, instead of waiting with gleeful relish in anticipation of primaries in 3 years?

McCain would have much more macho and want to get the U. s. into an even bigger war. I think any republican who could be nominated by the extreme right-wing gOP base would want war also. Now they want big escalation expenses partly to get us into more debt and then blame it on Democrats, and partly to have an excuse to say we cannot afford any social programs, and should sell off the public property at bargain basement prices to their rich pals. any Republican - except for Leach or Hagel - would have been worse than Obama. I would have considered voting for that ticket, actually. The GOP would never nominate those independent, thoughtful, decent guys however. The GOP was even nasty to Ron Paul, and he is further to the right on market issues than the phoney GOP right-wing populists who publicly attack TARP, but made sure it went through, to rescue their big rich friends.
