    Cheney Bells!

    Thw withdrawal of conventional forces needs to be followed by the Goldwater Doctrine.

    Senetor Barry Goldwater stated in 1962, that to win in Vietnam was impossible if the French were an example of the intractibility of guerillas hiding in mountains, therefore, NUKES were the right answer.

    We've no business in Iraq and Afghanistan the Pakistanis are thwarting our ability to get the Taliban--THEREFORE, we need to invoke the Goldwater solution, for the same reasons we used that solution in Japan, and be done with it.

    Otherwise we will repeat Vietnam, and be in that country forever FIGHTING instead of being what we are in Japan, a co sponsor against aggression.

    NOW do you get it?

      Nope. Afghan is already a repeat of Vietnam and a "war" we cannot win because like Vietnam, we are fighting people for their own country. Obama has been escalating the situation by bombing, killing women and children. That is why after a year of his policies, we have to have twice as many soldiers there. Pakistanis keep telling him - he doesn't listen - he is causing people to pick up arms and fight against us. The Taliban are a religious sect. Like it or not, you cannot eliminate the sect by bombing them all to death. Besides that, they are not the ones who did 9/11. Al Qaeda was.

      What happens after we use nuclear weapons? Don't you understand that nukes have no strategic value in the 21st century? Using nukes is an admission of failure. Would the rest of the world just stand by while a third of its population is obliterated? Think China and Russia would just stand by and watch? Do you think Europe and South America would just stand by? Think the Russians would not escalate? And keep in mind your easy answer.

      Hint: Easy answers are quick and wrong.
