Do you think President Obama should have publicly announced plans to withdraw our troops...
from Afghanistan next year? Some critics says it tips our hand to the Taliban and Al-Qaeda so that all those two terrorist groups have to do is wait till U.S troops leave the region and then strike. If possible, PLEASE defend your argument using citable sources.
If you ask me and we see from world's interest..usa should not leave afghanistan for another decade....it sound illogical but if usa leaves afghan and taliban takes over..world is heading for trouble..talibans are religious fanatics..they are not ambitious to expand but they would surely entertain fanatic groups from all across the globe..their version of religion doesnot consider majority of their faith people as believers ,forget others..afghanistan is unfortunately highly corrupt and return of taliban is likely...i understand usa's money and manpower concerns but world should invest if needed..

Freedom of speech and freedom of information belong to US and everyone who listens.
The freedoms that Americans take for granted and demand, come at a great cost. This is what we have forgotten.

If President Obama feels the duty to publicly criticize Donald Sterling's racial slurs...aimed at black people, why doesn't he voice criticism for racial slurs directed at non-blacks? While I found Sterling's comments ugly, ugly, ugly, at the very least he thought he made them in a purely private...
