A lot of the troops there are pretty down, and angry over the slowness of the president. They are performing very well, but things won't get put on the right path unless the people feel safe. The corruption in the government won't get better, and support from the people will not happen unless the people feel safe, and they don't right now. Giving the general what he needs would put things on the right path.
Its been way too long, Obama should have made a decision awhile ago. If he doesn't want to send more troops, he should just bring everyone home. Keeping them there without the support they need is a poor mistake, not to mention all of the time he's wasted will only make things harder for the general if he sends them.
It seems he's been more worried about being hated on by the anti-war people, instead of really listening to the people out there fighting the fight... Especially when during the election he saw Afghanistan as "the right war" Yet he's not making it easy for the generals, and the troops to win the war.
Everyone there feels we can win it, which starts off by making the people feel safe.. Our allies are pulling out, because we're giving them the vibe that we're not committed to win.
Sorry to say, but this president is not winning many points with me. With this mainly, having been there and having people I care about there.. It makes me very angry.
