98. I'm against it because I see no pending reward worth the known risk
I know full well what Obama campaigned on and understood what he was looking at strategically in March but I figured he has much more data than I do and figured to wait for the plan. We'll the plan is a debacle with very fuzzy definitions of success so I'm against escalation at least until I hear some real answers to even the simple questions of a layman.

The media and most people have become laser focused on troop numbers and are ignoring goals, strategy, and exit strategy. I've not heard a winning path on this yet. I'm not a dove so if I have comprehendable goals and a realistic path to achieve them then I could accept military action but no one is making a case for what we are buying with this amount of blood, treasure, and time.

Further, I find it unacceptable to give foreign nations an open checkbook to build their countries while our is falling down around us with almost no appetite for the massive scale reinvestment we need.
