That will be encouraging if it all happens. Obama just signed an order to send 17,000 more troups (a 50% increase) to Afghanistan so I'm not too hopeful for an end to war there with his administration so far however.

I am hopeful, however don't want to see Afghanistan become another Vietnam. I voted for Obama because of the "possibility" of Hope & Change. If we go in, we have to go in with Delta & Special Forces and accomplish the mission, KILL BIN LADEN.. and get out.

Peace will out!

I wish all the sheeple would stop looking at the halo around Obama's head....he's still on Bush track in Afghanistan...and so what about Gitmo, we have those prisons all over the world....as an "old Hippie" myself,freezing up here in New York, thanks so much for your blogs, I wondered where we all had disappeared to. and remember what The Who said
"meet the new boss, same as the old boss" if only it isnt so

peace
