Peggy Noonan knows how to set-up a debate. She starts her article about Afghanistan with: "All in. All out. Double down. Withdraw."
For some reason, America has the tendency to fight wars half way. Recently, President Bush fought the War in Iraq half way, until pushed to "go for the win" by John McCain. Obama has declared the War in Afghanistan as a "War of necessity" but then he has shown a reluctance to "go for the win".
America needs to avoid war when ever possible, but it should never fight to lose. It is time to go all in or to withdraw. The lives of our patriotic citizens are too precious to waste on half-way measures.
"All in. All out. Double down. Withdraw."
