"Sounds like the Liberal Biggies are Ganging up on Obummer !"

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) strongly criticized Barack Obama for dithering over accepting the recommendation for troops increases in Afghanistan by his handpicked Aghan commander, Gen. Stanley McChrystal, and blamed the delay for contributing to the deaths of eight U.S. soldiers at a small base in Nuristan that was nearly overrun by the Taliban last week.

Feinstein is running for re-election and I do believe she has a large military constituency.

We've been in Afghanistan for almost 8 years now.

What is it that would, or could, succeed in Afghanistan?

Unrestricted warfare against the Taliban. With Iraq being our primary concern, Afghan has been more about containment and small surgical strikes. Now that Iraq is winding down, we need to throw everything we've got and do what we did in Iraq. Womp the fuck outta them. Go through every southern village and fish them out. Have patrol after patrol go through the mountains with overwhelming air support.

Just apply non-stop pressure until these people have no choice but to give up.

The heavy duty West Coast and New York American hating,Radical Left,Maoists are telling him one thing and the Military are telling him another.He doesn't know whether to crap or go blind .He has zero experience in this military stuff and doesn't have the balls to make a really tough call on his own .

Some of the non radical Heavy's,like Feinstein. in the Congress are taking heat and are about to throw him under the 'Political Buss' to save their own butts .This guy is really just a 'Sweet' talking former Community Organising street hood for ACORN and is in way,way over his head .
