Afghanistan Troop Withdrawal
Well President Obama made a key decision today in determining the size and scope of the planned troop withdrawal starting this year in Afghanistan. I believe that when you put politics aside then all involved will agree that we have to ensure that the Afghan government can protect their citizens as well as meet their needs economically before we leave them on their own. but since politics seemingly cannot be put aside the Republicans who have clearly made their stand that we should get out of Afghanistan because of the money comes out in response to Obama's decision saying that it is irresponsible and we run the risk of losing the ground that we have gained since the insurgency. What the Republicans have been doing for the past 2+ years really has shown their true colors. No matter the issue they will disagree with Obama and the Democrats even when they publicly agreed with them days or weeks prior. All I have seen is a blatant disregard for the safety, well being and needs of the country for their own selfish desire for self preservation of wealth and power as well as their thirst to take back over the White House. If they truly cared about this country they would work with the Democrats and Obama instead of waiting and hoping that 2012 will come and they will gain more power. Unbelievable!
