Go Big or Go Home

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.

You can't put them out there then refuse/delay support to them. It is immoral. Criminal.

Just heard on Fox News that Obuma is may be going to allow Taliban to have a say in the politics of Afganistan!! HORRORS!! Is BHO insane or just an idiot!? I say bring our troops home now before it's too late. Please keep praying for our men and women in uniform.

One of my fears is that the Nobel Peace Prize was given to Obama as encouragement to give up in Afghanistan. It is a travesty that he is taking so long to make a decision when our troops are dying. Everything else (like health care) is an emergency, even though it doesn't go into effect until 2013, but our troops can wait around for months while Obama hems and haws.
