So right now there have about 1500 coalition troop deaths and 4500 total maimed and injured. No sure what the civilian count is up to now. So in the end I think we'll just end up paying off warlords who agree not to harbor AQ.

If Obama had any balls at all he would told Karzai that unless that law is rescinded immediately, the entire US military and all support is withdrawn.

So many mistakes...
Was, the operative word. Not now. Bush dropped the ball. His policies failed to capitialize on the total collapse of the Taliban and to take advantage of the good will when we liberated them from the Taliban.

Now our only hope is 100,000 troops and bribing them not to kill us. And I don't think that will work in the long run either.

If he came home with 2 D's and an F, that's 3 fingers (and this was a big dude). Does that sound hideous and disgusting? Absolutely. Did the kid ever get anything worse than a C after this rule was implemented? Not a chance.

I'm not saying it's morally right or wrong, but does it make the child because of it? Think about that for a second.
