33. If we STAY, the chances of us being HIT again will rise exponentially.
Edited on Sat Nov-28-09 01:04 PM by ShortnFiery
Reminder: There are al Qaeda cells all over The World.

However, instead of rallying around Obama, the FRIGHTENED American People, once again will turn to the right wing hard liners. Well, unless President Obama starts to strut and "bluster WAR" not unlike LBJ - but again, it did not turn out well for him either.

This will not end well for either Americans or the Afghanis. :(
