    How many brave Americans are going to be offered up for death in the Afghan War while we wait for the 2014 peace? We had an election where this war was not even an issue. The anti-war movement stalled when a Democrat stepped it up over there, spending more money in the first three years than Bush did in the first seven, and losing more troops at twice the rate.

    Let's just bring the troops home right now. We've brought several generals home already.
