President Obama declared victory last night after he addressed the troops he command - who enthusiastically cheered him – as he thanked them for their service on behalf of all patriotic Americans.

After listening to the President’s address to the nation I fully support the responsible way in which he will bring this conflict to an end. i may not like the commitment that we made for another 10 years, but I understand why we had to.

Poor teabagger.

If she loves you she will come back.

You might try Craigslist but as long as you've been looking for her, she moved on.

Get over it.

Now that's a bargain. Obama sycophants are rewarded at a much higher rate,$22.51. Only requirement is that they must post 24 hours a day morning noon and night rain or shine.

Yesterday was yesterday's promise. Today is today's. Politicians such as Obama do not even attempt to keep in line with what is promised since they know that citizens have a very very very short memory.

Why doesn't Obama order troops to leave right now if he intends to do so later. What's he waiting for? More US troops dying for nothing.

What a liar, last year he did not want to politicize the killing of ben laden, that would be wrong. This year when he can use the success of others to help his campaign he is all about it.

Maybe I should call him Barrak Bush. He reminds me of Bush on that aircraft carrier 9 years ago with the sign mission accomplished.

And now he promises to spend billions a year of our money on Afghanistan where we should not be at war in the first place.

Ron Paul was right, they are all the same, including Obama.

Clearly, Obama continues to politicize everything that our Us troops do with much sacrifice for his own personal gain and re-election campaign which is sickening and un-American .The Taliban terrorists of Pakistan attack few hours after Obama left Kabul prove that the paper that hypocrite Obama signed with the corrupt in nothing more than a paper that means nothing. The Mozlem Brother obsessed Obama deal with Karzai aimed at releasing he al Qaida and Taliban terrorists from prisons in Afghanistan and let them walk without punishment for killing our US troops. In addition the deal of the Taliban terrorist sympathizer Obama with Karzai will take out US from night operations against the Taliban terrorists and give the Afghan troops the leadership in every military operation. Clearly US troops will leave Afghanistan and slamming he door on their way out without looking back to see the Taliban terrorists under the Pakistani regime taking control of Afghanistan and spreading the Shariya laws that will trash any democratic institution that US troops tried to push. Obama proved that he is best friend of US worst enemies as he was rushing to pull our troops from Iraq only awarded the Iranian regime with the oil of Iraq and safe heaven of Iraq for the Iranian regime aircrafts that transport arms to the Iranian terrorists in Syria and Gaza. Under Obama’s failed command US lost its influence in the Middle East and in addition US lost all its allies in the Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia. US Military lost its deterrent power and became dysfunctional bunch of troops that are kept in idle and doing nothing but representing US as paper tiger.

yep, his promise to keep troops there till 2024 and oodles and oodles of US taxpayer owed chinese money for their army and bribes to their gov. Sounds like a plan .. At 22 years by the end of it will be the longest war in history for the US. Since you understand the need for troops for another 12 years you need to re-enlist and spend the next 12 yrs there in your adoration of the wun. Of course the taliban response to his speech begging to have 'talks' with them were met by attacks, death and destruction just hours after he left. The road to peace lolololol.

Not only will the US be spending 10 more years in Afghanistan and Iraq plussending them 'aid-$$$$$$$$$

this will also occur in:

Libya 10 more yrs, plus aid

Yemen 10 more yrs, plus aid

Egypt 10 more yrs, plus aid

Sudan 10 more yrs, plus aid

Somolia 10 more yrs, plus aid

Congo 10 more yrs, plus aid

Uganda 10 more yrs, plus aid

Mali 10 more yrs, plus aid

and you wonder why a generation is lost in America,

why we will be plunged in a decade of debt, doing without (we'll do without-not those in office- they'll continue to travel, eat and live on our dime)

This "Colin Powell" doctrine has been a disaster for the US. Someone should be reminding that bastard that he's partially responsible for the Longest War in modern US history.


Furthermore, Afghanistan was always broken so we should NEVER have even considered trying to rebuild or Own it.

It's time to get out. It has been for years.

I'd like to see Obama put his Tax Shelter kids into the military so they can serve their country instead of sucking up Millions in personal vacations to Spain.
