What a predicament! Stay and prop up a corrupt, ineffective unpopular government at great cost in lives and money or leave and allow a morally and spiritually corrupt insurgency to regain power, reestablish training camps for those who seek to do us harm and return terror to Afghanistan's women and moderate thinking citizens! Meanwhile the military-industrial complex continues to rake in the cash.

Good Job Ann
Obama's treadmill is an exercise in frustration.
When do we learn that changing other people's culture is their responsibility not ours.

Did Obama "battle with advisers over the exit plan for the Afghan war"?? Or did Obama want to KNOW the exit plan and they don't HAVE one?? It's two whole DIFFERENT meanings!!

Did anyone happen to catch the History Channel today. The series "It's Impossible" was allowed to expose some very important info for Americans concerning technologies that are very real and in full operation today. Even though I believe they downplayed the Mind Control segment a little to lightly and never mentioned the NSA or the use of cellular and microwave towers. Cheers for my hero Dr. Nick Begich. With all of those weapons capabilities the Afghan war should of ended long ago. I would like to see OPEN and FREE SPEECH completely restored in our American Media!

Ann I agree with you all the way on this one. Maybe you should have added a sign that says
"Please Do Not Disturb the Poppy Fields".
