I've laid out my view clearly on why it's time to begin withdrawing our troops from Afghanistan and Iraq, and also from their stations and bases around the world. But in case you missed it, please listen to my comments on why I hope you will join me in bringing our troops home.

Eight years into the war in Afghanistan, our top military leadership has yet to define clearly what victory and success will look like, nor has it identified the goals and objectives of the conflict. Like you, I've been thinking about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan for a long time. I've decided that it's time to bring our troops home. I hope you will join me in that effort.

I am disgusted with what is happening with General McChrystal, General Petraeus and the general staff of the Pentagon, President Obama, this administration, and the previous administration have been waging war in Afghanistan for eight years. I am upset that the White House has chosen not to consider withdrawing our troops from Afghanistan while our generals don't have a strategy for victory.

What happened? In the Bush administration we began to tolerate failure on the part of our general staff. We began to tolerate excuses on the part of the general staff. And it¹s being continued under this administration. I¹ve heard people say this president now owns the war in Afghanistan, that this President owns the war in Iraq. You know what, that's not true: You and I own the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. You and I are responsible for every single man and woman in uniform who is serving there and around the world.

And I have a proposition for President Obama: You say you will not consider withdrawing our troops from Afghanistan, so here is my proposition, Mr.
President: Given that we have not succeeded under the leadership of the general staff for eight years in Afghanistan, eight years of combat, why not re-evaluate what we are doing with our troops worldwide, not just Afghanistan?

For the sake of our men and women in uniform who deserve far better leadership than they are receiving from their general staff, please bring them home. It is time to call a halt to the nonsense, bring home our troops, and not just from Iraq and Afghanistan, but the 60,000 troops in Germany, 37,000 in South Korea, 10,000 in Japan, 10,000 troops in Italy.

Bring all of our troops home, and leave only a modest presence wherever it might be proven absolutely necessary, but bring home our troops.

Lou Dobbs Has All But Ignored Ron Paul....

or at least he did up until the elections, around which time I stopped watching him. He had Dr. Paul on the show once, when Dobbs wasn't even there. I think he fancies himself as the future leader of an independent, massive, Ron Paul-type movement, and he sees the Great Doctor as a threat, a competitor, and a nuisance. One thing is certain. On the SHG (Scale of Human Greatness) Lou Dobbs is not now, nor will he ever be, on the level of Ron Paul.

exactly.

I wrote to Dobbs telling him until he acknowledged Paul I would refrain from watching his show. I still havent watched it in about three years.

To me, he is trying to cash in on our movement. He is a hypocrite. Its been so long, he is now just a memory of a guy that I believed was standing up for America.

Beck hit a nerve.. Dobbs ignored a movement.

On this issue Lou Dobbs is in 100% agreement with Ron Paul.

Ron Paul is probably the only elected representative who completely agrees with Dobbs on this particular issue.

Time will tell if Ron Paul is a guest on his show about this petition and to discuss this issue.

They all have egos and agendas. Let's give Dobbs a chance with this before judging is my hope. Dobbs is again testing the waters with this perceived unamerican stance on complete troop withdrawals. He may end up getting the boot off of his show with this petition. He is taking a big risk speaking out and trying to do something about this.

yeah, but he is better than

yeah, but he is better than Beck.

Don't Sign It -- It establishes "Lou" as anti-war

He was in favor of this War all the way up 'till last year -- he did not like the way Bush was running it nor the Big Gov't Conservative Model -- however, the most costly thing -- what's destroyed our country economically is Foreign War / Oil / Welfare Expenditure and Homeland Corporatism (driving jobs over seas -- another form of welfare).

Therefore Dobbs favored all of it by being ignorant to foreign interventionism.

He's trying to sneak in.

You people got to get SERIOUS about this NeoCon Bumrushers

Did Lou EVER have any words of support for Ron Paul?

Don't know if he did or didn't but if not... screw him, he had his chance.
