Well, even Republicans are changing their minds.

Congressional Republicans shifting toward leaving Afghanistan
[ and they want a faster withdrawal than Obama who wants to do it piecemeal]

Even Senator Mitch McConnell supports the administration’s withdrawal plans for Afghanistan, and he is hardly alone.

Sen. John Thune (S.D.), the third-ranking Senate Republican said the following:

There are folks who are war weary. It’s been a long campaign, but obviously there are a lot of us who realize we’ve invested heavily in blood and treasure there.
Even Newt Gingrich questioned whether the mission in Afghanistan was “doable” this week.
And Rick Santorum suggested faster withdrawal should be a possibility.

Quote:
One of the biggest difficulties for a continued war effort is that public support has dissipated.

Several polls have shown that the public supports a quicker withdrawal in Afghanistan and oppose intervention in Syria, particular after the latest incidents in Afghanistan.
