Why wait for a decision on troops? It's politics, stupid....

I see on the Drudgereport that Obama is "closer" to making a decision on additional troops for Afghanistan. Imagine if we were stupid enough to wait on some other important military decisions throughout our history. What would the headlines be???

MARCH 1778: Washington Waits For Ice To Melt, Troops Defeated at Trenton

OCTOBER 1863: Rebels Rout Army At Gettysburg: Washington Under Siege

OCTOBER 1898: Spanish Hold On To San Juan Hill, Roosevelt To Undergo Court-Martial

JANUARY 1945: As Bastogne Falls, German Rockets Pummel London, Thousands Die

NOVEMBER 2003: Iraq Launches Chemical Weapon Attack On Israel, Millions Perish
