Obama's plans to pull out of Afghanistan

Obama's plans to pull out of Afghanistan

President Obama (hic) plans to begin withdrawing troops from Afghanistan next


Gen David Patreus has just assumed command of the forces in Afghanistan.  Gen

Patreus has publicly said , "We are in this to win."

Since these two plans are contradictory, how long before Patreus is out?

If you tell your enemy that you are quitting the fight,  wouldn't it be reasonable

for him to just sit back and wait? We have all seen boxing matches where one

fighter waits for the other to tire out.  If i was the Taliban, I would slow down

my activities until our troops are pulled out.  I mean we have already told them

when it was gonna be.  Then just as soon as we are gone, pounce .  Take everything

back over again. Come on we just gave them great intelligence , didn't we?  Told

them when we were leaving and that we are giving up.

 When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don't adjust the goals,

adjust the action steps.

In war there is no substitute for victory. It is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.
Douglas MacArthur

Gen Patreus, I think you've been dropped into it.
