President Obama tonight bottled it.
He gave a very eloquent speech but he still bottled it.
Essentially what he was telling the citizens of the free world was that the United States could no longer afford to wage war in Afghanistan.
The cost is just too great.
Cynical observers at West Point Military Academy accused the President of plotting a pull out strategy. Some even accused him of waving a white flag. While America will increase its military presence in the short term, as a state it just wants to get the hell out of Afghanistan. America has seemingly had enough.
Good job Barack. You just crapped all over the Western World.
Britain says it's 'not bovvered.'
More as we get it.
This is really important shit.
