I said other and my other is maybe we should not only get the hell out of their before more die, but also before we allow another president to bring us to war we impeach him first.

President Obama should take the corageous decision to unilaterally denounce the international conventions on drugs for them to be legalised and terrorists will find it much more difficult to self-finance. It would be a major blow to al Quaeda and Afghani opium farmers will live peacefully on their trade, not to mention the benefits for drug addicts no longer forced to hide and commit crimes in our western cities

We're gonna be forced out eventually.Sooner we're out,sooner the Afghanis can get back to trying to build a country.

We could have left them alone in the late 70's when their socialist government cracked down on the druggies and fundamentalists and gave women the right to attend school and work.

We don't give a damn if those poor people live or die,it's geopolitics and posturing.

Pardon the chauvinism but Obama needs to be a man for once in his life and get out.

We should make it clear to Karsai that if he does not stop supporting the corruption in his government and in his country popular opinion in Europe and the United States will force us to withdraw the US and NATO forces and cut off financial aid. The last President of Afghanistan was hung from a lamp post in Kabul. Our forces should be fighting to install a true democracy not suffering and dying to prop up a bunch of crooks.

I said reduce troops and not support Karzai; he's not the legitimate president in my view and him being installed by Bush doesn't further my confidence in him. Leave some troops there for infrastructure building (God knows, those people need it) and goodwill, but make other nations help with that as well. Adding more troops there is just going to further piss off the Afghanis and frankly I don't blame them. Outside of Kabul (and part of Kabul, truthfully) is a lawless region of tribes and I don't see that changing much. Let them people (Afghanis) decide what they want for themselves.

I certainly hope President Obama accepts your advice and Ambassador Eikenberry's when he finally arrives at his decision whether to support Gen. MacChrystal's surge or not. It is right on!



From Lisa G. in reply to Peter Anastasia on November 28, 2009 at 9:08 pm 

Thanks Peter! I'll just give O a call on his private line, let him know that you and I agree, and enough with this analysis paralysis! What do those damned generals know anyway!

There was another poll within this poll on whether ot not to support Karzai.  15 for, 63 against.

I voted to reduce troops without supporting Karzai, because I see the need to coordinate withdrawal with our allies.  Do you care to discuss your vote>

I'm still gonna call O on his private line and rip him a new one for this latest surge. Who does he think he is (as that ass Lou Dobbs just said in relation to climate change in Copenhagen, a Republican?

And Karzai is a crook - I know that, you know that and most of the world knows that. Besides, he was installed by Bush - that de-legitimizes automatically.

Karen, I fully agree. Karzai would never have beep appointed the Bush/GOP puppet there were he not an employee of a US energy company.
