     Since a war with Syria is a distinct possibility (whether with drones or boots on the ground_ in the near future, it would make sense to accelerate the withdrawal of our troops from Afghanistan by the end of this year.

     It is time for American conservatives to acknowledge that Donald Rumsfeld created a mess in that sorry country, despite his boast that he didn’t “do quagmires.”

     If we bring our troops home by December 31, 2013, a year earlier than scheduled, we will save many lives and much money.

     Come on, Mr. President; show a little gumption!
