A Decade of War -- for What?

"The time of war began in Afghanistan, and this is where it will end." Sounds to me like "Peace in our time". All we can do is HOPE that this is NOT the case. I expect this war will blow up in our faces before it is over. This war has not even begun yet.

It is well past time to bring our people home and let the people if Afghanistan look after themselves.

Isn't it time you got out of you jammies and went to work, Corbie? Oh yeah, you DON'T have a job, do you. Still, you've been well brain-washed and blame the republicans, not the leftist who have had power for three years now for your problems!

"My fellow Americans, we have traveled through more than a decade under the dark cloud of war," said Barack Obama from Bagram Air Base.

"Here in the predawn darkness, we can see the light of a new day on the horizon. The Iraq War is over. The number of troops in harm's way has been cut in half, and more will be coming home. ... The time of war began in Afghanistan, and this is where it will end."

Interesting comment, that last.

If "the time of war" is at an end, does that rule out U.S. military action in Syria...
