I agree 100%, it was a disaster. And I was actually only a few months away from going to Afghanistan, when I was in the military. Thank god I didn't!
Just so we're clear here. I think we're in agreement on most things here, I'm just saying that if it's in the US' interest, then they'll find a way.
I know that Denmark will most likely be supporting the US as they always do, so I hope you get a... no, any other president will do. No other requirements, doesn't have to be smart or anything, just someone else! :-D
