67. Afghanistan, Obamas' War....'re absolutely right....look at the bright side, the pentagon gets to keep their trillion dollar budgets....Obama gets to play commander-in-chief, the repug/wall street greedsters retain their corporate profits and the Dems now have a built-in excuse for not delivering on Universal Healthcare.... as usual, changeless change...
