15. We all want the wars to end and I think he does too. But we all know
that even as he wants to end the war, he can't just declare it over at the drop of a hat. Consensus has to be built and I think that's what he is doing. Any other president would have caved in by now and sent all those troops over there that the General has been asking for.

Don't mean to be snarky. I just take exception to your implying the war is his and his alone. As though he could simply walk into office and say the war is over.
