"President Obama will face a stiff political challenge Wednesday in presenting his plan for a gradual end to the U.S. military involvement in Afghanistan. His prime-time address must remind a skeptical electorate and a concerned Congress that the country’s longest war remains worth fighting — and funding — for several more years." The Washington Post
By the end of 2014, all U.S. troops are scheduled to leave Afghanistan. That's not soon enough! Is this about obtaining oil and other resources? This is the epitome of ignorance. We have alternative solutions such as: Nuclear Fission, Biofuels, Geothermal Energy, Hydroelectric Energy, Solar Energy and Wind Energy. Instead of financing a war, how about creating jobs in the United States for Biological engineers to research all of these alternative energy sources. Peace!
