You want the Afghan War to drag on so that more Americans can die needlessly, and more of the ME has reason to loathe us.
The United States had 32,500 military personnel (of which 23,550 were with ISAF) in Afghanistan in 2008.
By 2011 there were 101,000
Draw downs have gotten us to 68,000, still twice what Bush had.
And did you know,
Over Twice as Many U.S. Soldiers Have Died in Afghanistan Under Obama In 3 1/2 Years Than Did Under Bush in 8 Years
Seems we never hear that stuff in the press
