Obama Should End the War - or Resign.
This is Vietnam all over again, and Obama should learn the lesson of the LBJ failure. We do not commit atrocities in other countries, and when we begin to do so, the war is already over. Our presence now - in the wake of the serial murders of civilians in Afghanistan this weekend - will not "win hearts and minds" of the indigenous population. Indeed, they are now rioting in response to the murders.
Before the 1968 election, LBJ, unable to end the war in Vietnam, announced that he would not run for re-election. Whether Obama realizes it or not, he is presently at that moment of decision. Get out - or get out, Mr. President.
