President Obama has made a troop reduction order without having this drawdown recommend by any of the US commanders. John McCain believes that this is too soon and that Obama is making a mistake by taking the troops out too early.
Senator McCain appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” to tell everyone just how he felt about this reduction in troop numbers.
President Barak Obama has ordered that the troops be reduced by 10,000 by the end of 2011 and then 23,000 more taken out by Sept 2012.
What does the Marine general who is expected to carry out the president’s troop withdrawal order say about this drawdown schedule? He think it is a little more aggressive than the military had anticipated. This pretty much means that he does not agree with it but what is he going to do or say since it has been ordered by the President?
Withdrawing troops before we are ready is not going to be helpful, it will just cause more deaths and require us to send more troops back over at a later date. It is important that we finish what we started and win the war in Afghanistan.
