politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com — As the American public and the global community await the completion of the Obama administration's extensive review of U.S. military involvement in Afghanistan, Mikhail Gorbachev, the former president of the Soviet Union, said Sunday that, instead of sending more troops, Obama should begin to the lay the groundwork to withdraw from Afghanistan.

"I think that what's needed is not additional forces," the former Soviet leader said through a translator, "this is something that we discussed, too, years ago but we decided not to do it. And I think our experience deserves attention."

I think Gorbachev has it right on this matter. Staying in Afghanistan is a liability in the long term and seriously hurts Obama's image as Nobel Peace Prize recipient. The Iraq war is another painfull reminder of failed policies of the past.
