    "Barack Obama is set to reject the advice of the Pentagon by announcing on Wednesday night the withdrawal of up to 30,000 troops from Afghanistan by November next year, in time for the US presidential election."

    In time for the US presidential election?

    Of course, remember Vietnam? Just like Kissinger and Nixon before his 2nd term. So, what's new?

    Same thing happened in 1972 I think it was. Would a politician do something like that? Of course they would.

    Of course it is.

    Just think how quickly things would get done if elections were held every six months!
