The Afghan Plan

Tonight the President lays out his intentions for Afghanistan, otherwise known as the “Graveyard of Empires.”  And in bringing about “change” like so much of his first year in office he’s really just bringing about more of the same.  “President Barack Obama is sending 30,000 extra U.S. troops to Afghanistan on an accelerated timetable that will have the first Marines there as early as Christmas and all forces in place by summer. But he’ll also declare Tuesday night that troops will start leaving in 19 months.”  Yup, he intends to have the best of both worlds.  <deep heavy sigh>
