Obama's Afghan Dilemma: Missing Security Forces

• Time magazine
President Obama's plain-speaking Defense Secretary, Robert Gates, on Nov. 12 summed up the Administration's Afghan dilemma in a single question: "How do we signal resolve and at the same time signal to the Afghans and the American people that this is not open-ended?" The fact that there's no good answer explains the Administration's hesitation in committing more troops to the fight. Indeed, the objectives cited by Gates may function at cross-purposes.

Dear Assholes-in-Charge: Why don't you "signal" respect for your oath of office and get our people the hell out of this hell? The only "message" you are sending to the world is that you are disloyal hypocrites and mass-murdering war criminals.
