Will Obama's quick drawdown reverse the gains in Afghanistan?

    The president might be unnecessarily putting our troops in harm's way.

      I am not that sure we have made these so called big Gains claimed.

      and as for the Service People there, (The ones comming back to Ft. Campbell)  On the local news here,  they are saying  that no gains were really significant.

        Tend to agree. What gains have been achieved? It has been labled by both parties as a "Just Cause". What was the goal? To remove the Taliban? Fine, we don't need a standing Army to do that.

    I say leave Afghan and the Paki's to have their own lives and build their own countries. We got who we came for and that is that. If they slip back into Islamic chaos, it is not our problem. They want to go again then we will at that time.
