While campaigning for the Presidency, Barack Hussein Obama stated that the war in Iraq is a distraction. The real war—“a war of necessity”—claimed Obama, is actually in Afghanistan. He charged that President Bush had taken his eye off the ball, and was not even successful in eliminating Usama Bin Laden.
This from the man who assured the American people that the surge in Iraq would not only fail, but make the situation in Iraq worse.
I guess community organizers are not schooled in military tactics. Just tax evasion and underage brothels.
I did not take Obama’s Afghan war talk seriously.
The Democrats have not yet seen a war they support, much less have the spine to win.
Besides, winning is so yesterday.
It took the British 12-long years to defeat the Communist insurgency in Malaysia. The Brits had grit and resolve.
The only resolve Obama has displayed is in his war against the CIA.
Obama’s war of necessity is now, uh, not so much.
Sort of like Obama’s solemn pledge never to opt out of public financing for his Presidential campaign, and then he dropped that vow pronto.
Sort of like Obama’s deadlines to the Iranians that are made of dust.
Post-Modern Democrats have stamped expiration dates on Americas wars of liberation. If the conflict goes on longer than, say, World War II, well, the war either can’t be won, or it’s not worth the effort.
Obama hand-picked General McChrystal.
But McChrystal did not serve up the report Obama wanted.
No wonder Obama’s spent more time with David Letterman than with General McChrystal.
Thus, Obama and his Democrat allies will twist language like a pretzel; declare surrender and betrayal as victory and gradually withdraw our troops from Afghanistan. The Taliban will rule the land and its people—most of whom hate the Taliban—under a barbaric 7th century caliphite dedicated to repression, and making transnational Islamic terrorism its main export—along with opium.
Under the Talibam women who want to get an education will have acid flung in their faces, and child rape will become the norm.
Hey, they can hire Roman Polanski to give seminars.
The Democrats will do all this because according to the liberal mind, only Western liberals deserve freedom. Afghans, Iraqis—backward dusky people—have their cultural norms and gee willikers, who are we to interfere with all those icky yet traditional beheadings.
Meanwhile, I know that the world has been turned upside down when I agree with the French. Sarkozy believes that Obama is incredibly naive and so grossly egotistical that his naivete cannot be shaken. Concludes President Sarkozy, the West is in danger with Obama as leader of the free world.
Next thing you know I’ll be watching French films.
