Obama announced recently that 2014 deadline for complete troops withdrawal is still feasible. Infact it will start as soon as July 2011. How ever looking at surge in attacks in both Afghanistan and Pakistan, it seems an all out victory for NATO troops is highly impossible.
What do you think, how Obama will keep his promise of troops withdrawal? Or is it a tactic to fool home public given his poor performance in recent poll and keeping an eye of forthcoming election??? Are Taliban going to come back in power once Uncle Sam is out of Afghan battle???

I don't think it was necessary to let them know the time and date for withdrawal...what if it can't be done, and why let them know our weakness...It only gives the "Taliban" reason to laugh at us more...and put our troops in unnecessary danger. They are very clever people and hate us, so God help us all.

Did you know that the real reason we ousted the Taliban and are still fighting in Afghanistan is because Bush Sr and Halliburton have oil interests in the Caspian? Did you know that they need a pipeline in Afghanistan...
