In the end, we had to blow out that second BackStory hit. Y'know. Because the president was speaking. But for folks who wanted to check out Cal Perry's Special Forces stint in Iraq - we've got you covered:

    The Taliban is like trying to exsterminate a house full of cock roches just about every method has been used to get rid of them and faild maybe its time to try a new bug man.

    I thought we were going to Afghanistan to get rid of Al Quaida, not the Taliban. Isn't that the big talking point? If we leave Al Quaida will join forces with the Taliban? Although the Taliban is horrid, especially in human rights issues, they are not the ones who flew planes into our buildings. We can snuff out Al Quaida in Iraq and Afghanistan and what will happen? They will pop up again in Nigeria or some African country!
