How many terrorists did it take to hit us on 9/11???
Don't let the right-wing tactics fool you - some of them are pushing for more war, and others for less, so they can say "I told you so", whichever way Obama decides. What most of them want is to attack him, not any particular policy. They make up the same pipe dreams about how easy it will be, to try to convince the rest of us to approve of more troops. I am quite serious in wanting the war-mongers to go to fight themselves. It would be cheaper than putting them in jail for treason. They are willing to destroy this country to get Obama in trouble! That is very close to treason. They also want so much spent on war that there will be no way to get public support for health care reform, or extending unemployment benefits, or anything to help the economy - then they (GOP right-wing operators) will insist on tax cuts to cause a bigger deficit,and blame the Democrats for all of it. The same tactics they used under Ronald Reagan, with the big tax cuts, and big defense budgets.

Glad to see someone else taking on these sabre-rattlers! The Republicans are trying to trot out the most hawkish military, and then rush through a big troop commitment, and then blame Obama if it does not work. It was OK with them when Bush did not send in enough - as Kashdari said would be needed, and Rummy and Cheney said were not needed - in Iraq. It is OK with the GOP that Bush did not do much about fighting Taliban or al-Qaida in Afghanistan for 6 years. The right-wing partisan GOP just wants to blame Obama. The stupid mass stupid media is playing on the gOP side of this game, too.
