Well, you have probably made your decision on how many lives you will save by bringing them home and how many you will condemn to death by continuing their presence in your shitty little war in Afghanistan. Now you are just polishing up that turd so we will buy it. Trouble is, we can't afford it no matter how much polish you put on it. If, after you bring the first 3000 troops home, you continue to bring home 3000 or more each month until only Karzai of the Afghans is left, that will be good.
Mr. President, you are not a warlord. And you don't get to be a warlord by practicing with your shitty little war. And you can't run the shitty little war by listening to your generals. After 10 years they have made it clear they can't run a war either.
Save lives. Save money. Bring them all home now.
