Earlier I had started to present my reasoning for supporting the President and by extension the military brass, which is basically I thought it was time to move forward and bring this thing to a conclusion, I thought the President did a good job of putting together the larger picture in policy, if not in the speech. So I support the strategic decision and have questions about some of the tactical aspects of the policy, but I’m just a blogger so what do I know?
So I haven’t put the downside, upside, argument and conclusion, just the conclusion. I think it’s in the best interests of the United States, just like I always do, and if we disagree I hope it’s for the same reason. It’s a boost for morale of the troops, and it pulls the country somewhat back together. If I can help that along, I think I should.
