Stop the Pointless Killing, Mr. Obama

With all due respect to you Mr. President, the surge of your so-called “good war” in Afghanistan has degenerated into a chaos of bloodshed that can only get worse. Your apologists' excuse that most civilian casualties are being inflicted by local insurgents may be factually correct, but it's not convincing. Were these local insurgents killing each other at such an alarming rate before the surge started? No. It was the surge that fueled the violence. Small wonder that war-weary civilians, the great majority of the Afghan people, loathe us Americans. Time to cut and run, Mr. President. Time to bring our troops home, and with them the billions of dollars and all the other valuable resources we are squandering in that tragic corner of the world.
