I plan to be quite pissed off at Obama for continuing to send troops to Afghanistan when he makes that expected announcement tomorrow evening. More blood and treasure will flow into an unwinable situation and it will not even gain the President the political advantage and support he thinks it will bring him from the right. They will instead chastise Obama for waiting too long and 'waffling' about a decision he should have made weeks ago. Instead of searching for an honorable way to bring those brave young men and women home to their families, he puts more of them in harm's way. I hate these moments when a man who could have been a transformative figure in our world turns out to be just another politician. I especially hate, however, how dumb I was for hoping he could be something different. It only takes one man to lead the revolution and only one to stop it dead in its tracks.
