Can being a warlord really be so much fun that you need to leave so many good Americans in harms way for no good reason? Just think sir, of all the people who will be wounded, maimed and die because you were not man enough to say 10 years is too much and anymore is just plain folly.
Your shitty little war in Afghanistan is wrong and the goal you seek is a chimera. You can still change your mind and declare your goal of 10,000 troops withdrawn to be a monthly goal. That would be what a real American president would do. The waste of lives and treasure will damage this country deeply and you are the only one who can accept the blame for this. Shame on you for choosing this course.
