My viewpoint: I wish that Obama would grow a set and become a leader. Go in and perform a WWII-style azz whoopin' and sweep every non-peaceful Taliban or AQ supporting person from the face of the earth (that would include those in Pakistan). Or, tuck tail and leave...
I don't think that Eisenhower, Patton, Montgomery or Bradley would have fought this War this way. It is the President's job to lead and by wavering and utlizing this "thoughtful deliberation" methodology for delaying a troop surge and fight for victory OR a precipitous withdrawl starting immediately is a joke. Lead dammit!!! That is what the CIC is supposed to do, I am sorry but he has been deliberating about this for far too long. This is all political now.
