Anything short of General McChrystal's request for 40,000 additional troops shows a commitment by America to fail in Afghanistan. It certainly doesn't show a commitment to the Afghan people or our military, and will result in many unnecessary casualties to the innocent Afghan people and American soldiers. Worst of all, this half-baked strategy will keep America involved in Afghanistan longer than is absolutely necessary to finish the job of stabilizing the country.

This is President Obama's worst decision yet, and that is saying a lot. You cannot cost-cut a war and expect to win. You cannot put a price tag on human life and expect to win.

Afghanistan will be Obama's Vietnam, if he continues to ignore the general he appointed. Americans should be outraged. Afghanistan will become a haven again for terrorists, and another 9/11 will occur, just as Condoleeza Rice warned.

Obummer goes from bad to worse. Aside from trying to give his ideological soul-mates lots of cash, what has he done? Economy in shambles, promoting a lying fraud in Copenhagen, half-assed weak effort in Afghanistan, defiant Iran, the list of failures goes on and on. What a jerkhead! Hope and change? Ha. Hopeless quagmire
