Feingold asks Obama to announce a timetable for withdrawal from Afghanistan


thinkprogress.org

Sen. Russ Feingold, D-WI, called on President Obama to announce a timetable for withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan. “This is a strategy that is not likely to succeed,” Sen. Feingold said about the troop buildup in Afghanistan. [...]

“I think it is time we start discussing a flexible timetable so that people around the world can see when we are going to bring our troops out,” said Feingold.

Very cool. Glad to hear some sanity coming out of Washington!

The polls clearly show that the people of the USA do not want this war.

As I show in this thread earlier today there is plenty of evidence to show that this is NOT a war of necessity as Obama and Bush before him clearly state, it is a war of choice that is doing damage to the safety and image of the USA.

Right, left, center, or out-there political leanings should not sway you from the importance of Feingold's call for withdrawal. We should support him in this endeavor, the endeavor to do the right thing.

Hey, this could get interesting!

I have been wondering where the Anti-War movement went. Hell, everyday under the Bush administration it was all we heard about, day in and day out on the news... Now, almost nothing?

Why not?

Has anything changed? Not really, It is actually getting worse I believe. So where is the coverage of the protests and the talking heads demanding the Obama administration to follow-through with withdrawal?

Eight years is an awful long time. With all due respect. I thought the US was a bunch of butt kickers. How long do you think it's going to TAKE, JD? How many years should it take to defeat a bunch of guys hiding in caves and bring them to justice?
