According to the London Times our troops are discouraged and depressed about the situtation going on in Afghanistan. All of this in the shadow of our President having the request of more troops and dragging his heals.
Mr. President, make a decision. Give our troops what they need or bring them home. Today, Robert Gibbs said during his press briefing that we had to consider the costs. While I agree that cost of course is an issue, but it can't be the only issue.
We need to decide if as a matter of national security we need to continue to stay in Afghanistan. If it is decided that it is not a matter of natural securtiy than bring them home. Why are we endangering the lives of our troops without a clear mission?
People that are willing to put themselves in harms way to protect my freedoms deserve to be given what they need to get the job done. Mr. President, if you are not willing to give it to them, then bring them home.
