Obama's Illegal Occupation of Afghanistan; Calling For More Troop Deployment
An ongoing illegal occupation of Afghanistan by Dear Leader His Excellency Barack Saddam Hussein Obama, Junior? Check!
Absolute, dutiful and total silence by the Pbama Cultists on Obama's continued illegal occupation of Afghanistan? Check!
Whoa...W. Bush never received the Coveted Free Pass like Pbama is, huh?
More U.S. Troops likely heading for Afghanistan and no clear strategy from Obama in Afghanistan. Washington Examiner:
With a growing-yet-ambiguous mission and no clear exit strategy, the war in Afghanistan is fast becoming a key political liability for President Barack Obama.
Last week, the White House gamely tried to characterize Thursday's Afghan elections as a milestone for democracy. But the administration's tepid relationship with presumptively re-elected President Hamid Karzai is one symptom of a larger struggle for Obama.
"Our goal is clear: To disrupt, dismantle and defeat al Qaeda and their extremist allies," Obama said of Afghanistan. "This is not a challenge that we asked for; it came to our shores when al Qaeda launched the 9/11 attacks from Afghanistan."
Obama has tried to bring stability to Afghanistan by sending more troops and shaking up the military command. He broadened the regional strategy to include Pakistan and rooting out terrorist safe havens.
But even so, a Washington Post/ABC News poll last week found 51 percent of Americans said the war in Afghanistan is not worth fighting. Among Democrats, 70 percent are against the war.
"I think most Americans were on board with the limited objective of getting rid of al Qaeda and the Taliban after 9/11," said Malou Innocent, a Middle East expert at the Cato Institute. "Since that time, however, it's morphed into a more robust state-building effort that many Americans didn't sign up for."
The president and his family Sunday fly to Martha's Vineyard for a week of vacation. Also heading to the island resort is Cindy Sheehan, the durable anti-war protester who spend consecutive summers protesting near former President George W. Bush's Texas ranch.
"The only change I have seen in foreign policy is, unfortunately, things are getting worse in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan," Sheehan said Friday on MSNBC. "We need to revive our anti-war sentiment."
Sheehan's critique from the Left is problematic for Obama in part because it underscores a criticism from some Democrats that he is merely extending Bush war policies.
Some lawmakers have said they want the president to clearly explain why the United States is still in Afghanistan and what the end-game will be. For now, Obama describes the conflict as one that will go on.
"It's at great cost," Obama said in a radio interview last week. "I mean, you know, I have to sign letters to family members who have fallen, and a lot more are falling in Afghanistan than in Iraq. And as a consequence, we've got to make sure that we are really focused on finishing the job in Afghanistan. But it's going to take some time."
And Cult Leader Pbama says Afghanistan is, "going to take some time?" Huh...how 'bout that. Because "time" is something The Liberals were never willing to extend to W. Bush.
Remember "Bring The Troops Home Now!" Now is such a relative term for the Pbama Cultists.
It's never all that amazing how Liberals hold their own to completely different, far more lenient standards than they hold and apply to everyone else, isn't it?
Well...there it is, then.
What?...What's that I hear from the Pbama Cultist War is Always Wrong crowd? Why...I don't hear anything. They love them their Warmonger Pbama.
No plan, no strategy, no benchmarks, no endgame in sight, more U.S. Soldiers shipped into Afghanistan. Something tells me the Pbama Cultists weren't so lenient on this issue with W. Bush.
Oh well, Hypocrisy, Thy Name is Pillow-Biting, Kool-Aid injecting Pbama Cultists.
Thanks for visiting and commenting. And linking to me. I will add you as well.
I wonder what poor impaired soul he will belittle next? He's done the Special Olympics, bedwetters, can autistic children be next?
We have soldiers dying everyday in both Iraq and Afghanistan. All everyone wants to do is blame the other guy instead of trying to come up with real solutions. I know this is your blog and you seem like a pretty intelligent person. That's why I wonder... How could you, someone who obviously has a brain bye into any of this crap from either side?
You "hate everyone equally" huh? That's the difference between you and me. I hate the Liberal/Marxist ideas and policies, not the people. You, on the other hand hate the person.
It't actually "buy" into, not "bye."
