War is over
Let’s take stock of the USs military situation:
We have troops in Afghanistan, who are looking for bin Laden, who was in Pakistan
We have troops in Iraq, who are supposed to be leaving
We have a new war in Libya, against a very clever tyrant who has no intention of handing over power
We could bring them home, most easily and saving the greatest expense would be withdraw from both Afghanistan and Iraq.
Obama could take a advice Nixon should have heeded on Vietnam and “Declare victory and then go home”
There is no surrender from this collection of militant splinter groups, so you find your victory (Osama is dead) and you say you are done and bringing the troops home. Then Obama can be the tough president who killed this bad guy and be a peace president as well. If we are really lucky, he will now earn his peace prize.
