    no. it is time the US steps back and lets other countries solve their own problems. why people want the US to help out is beyond me as their country is full of turmoil itself. the crime rate there is crazy, never mind the political problems. let countries take care of themselves, it's the only way they will learn from their mistakes.

    If he felt it would save his approval ratings or take America's attention away from the many problems he's only exacerbated with his new policies, there's no doubt in my mind he would send them to the moon.

    Of course supporting people who are fighting for freedom for democracy( as opposed to those fighting for freedom to oppress others) is something the U.S. should principally do.
    But a well thought out plan for going in, winning the conflict, managing that particular nation's affairs till that particular nation can manage them itself while successfully maintaining freedom and democracy for all and finally for getting all of the troops out has to exist before anything is done.
    The Bush mistake was seeing the winning of a war as simply winning military battles. If you don't have a clear plan for solving the social problems that follow along with a clear departure plan for your own troops you should stay at home.
    This was something that Clinton managed much much better than his successor.
    Never forget, these are people (the soldiers) you're sending in there. With certainty, some of them will be killed there. Many will be killed if the operation is poorly planned. Every soldier knows that death is a possibility in case of war but no soldier wants to fight, possibly die in a stupid and poorly planned fiasco.

    Frankly speaking I think if he likes to do so then also somehow he won't be able to because he is already too much obsessed with Afghanistan. Also it also looks that the people and the International community pressure are self-sufficient to deal the the current scenario thus providing no reason for doing so.

    I think we are witnessing a man who is very intelligent, who believed in the left-side of things, however, he is slowly get a dose of reality and instead of following party politics, he is going to go with simply that which works. I think Obama is finding out, the left-side of politics is not necessarily what works.
