The lead General of NATO has called for more troops and police in Afghanistan. What will the U.S. do and where will we stand on this? Nothing is certain- but what can we learn from looking at our history over the last decades?
The last two presidents have been dramatically different in their agendas, political viewpoints, and initiatives in office. I know few people who would make any comparisons between current president Barack Obama and former president George W. Bush. The social and environmental agendas are starkly different, and their ways of speaking and communicating in general couldn’t be more different. But to date, they have both been heavily involved in the same two wars- Iraq and Afghanistan.
