US Republicans to target Afghan withdrawal timetable

The difference between Democrats and Republicans may be marginal, but it is real. Yes there are some Dems calling for no time table on withdrawal from Afghanistan. But not the leaders of the party. Rups did not waste anytime bringing the wars backup after the election. I guess we should give them some credit for that. But they do not want to leave. The want to stay until there is this no one can explain what it looks like, VICTORY. Rups are planning to use this issue as a way to undermine the President’s war policy of moving towards disengaging (although to damn slow for me) and any other policy he puts forth. This is not a call to support the President’s war policies. In fact we must push harder than ever to force a withdrawal. But it should be clear that this is one place that there is a difference between Dems and Rups, however small. MTM
