The CNN/ORC International survey released Friday indicated only 25% of Americans support the war in Afghanistan, a new all time low. Most Republicans even voiced opposition to it, an unprecedented detail in the entirety of the decade-long war.
“We cannot fight wars by polls,” Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said on Tuesday. “If we do that we’re in deep trouble. We have to operate based on what we believe is the best strategy to achieve the mission that we are embarked on. And the mission here is to safeguard our country by ensuring that the Taliban and al Qaeda never again find a safe haven in Afghanistan.”-Support for Afghan War Hits New Low, Majority Say Pull Out Before 2014
Wait, we've been fighting this war for over ten years now, and we still haven't accomplished our "mission"? WTF? And I though it was also all about "democracy". Strange then that the Obama regime just ignores the will the people it is supposedly representing.
