    Stupid Obama could have been one of America's greatest heros, a living legend, they would have put him and his beautiful smile on Mt Rushmore, all he had to do to acheive greatness was what the people who voted for him expected, End Both Wars / Close Gitmo instead the friggin dummy is following the Hated Bush's footsteps and on top of that he is destroying America's economy, he should have consulted me I could have shown him the path to Presidential Valhalla.

    Deja vu? Bill O'Reilly declares Afghanistan a stalemate:

    Bill O'Reilly: The O'Reilly Factor Flash - Tuesday, June 29, 2010

    Not a big O'Reilly fan (tho I can't say that I've watched a lot of his show either so fwiw) but nine years IS a helluva long time.

    He thinks Petraeus is going to save the day by loosening the rules and nailing everybody. Maybe someone should just nail the right people instead.

    McC also said this: "We've shot an amazing number of people and killed a number and, to my knowledge, none has proven to have been a real threat to the force." McChrystal Method Out: Sacked By The Truth

    No wonder he's gone.

    How dare a General in charge of a war point out the reasons why the war can't be won with a timeline which coincides with a Presidential election! He should realize that the troops on ground that he is responsible for, and the terrorists they are killing are nothing more than political points to be used, not a means to bring about peace or freedom or anything like that!!
    I can't wait until the General in charge of the war is in line with our great, experienced war leader The Great Obama, and starts to use us solely as a way for him to gain votes instead of a means to hamper international terrorism and make America and Americans safe.

    Supposedly that bounty hunter from CO was "very close" lol :bricks: (which is probably why he got pulled back...). How many times do these people die and come back to life again? Maybe The Rapture's true.......

    This is not new, the politicians took over the Viet Nam conflict... how did that work out..

    As Ben Franklin said, " There has never been a good war or a bad peace"...

    New or old it doesn't make it right. Or left:rolleyes:

    Either way it seems a coup of sorts took place here and though I'm sure the story will die, it won't be because there's nothing to it.

    You DO realize that Petraeus wants to loosen the rules don't you? And that one of McC's major strongholds was limiting civilian casualties? Not that it worked out too well and not that it hasn't proven a frustration, but I'd imagine that's a quality you'd embrace, no?
