Spreading Sunshine & Pixie Dust
75% of the time

Hold on there, folks... back the truck up. DingleBarry tells us last night that the reason he's sending 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan is because;
"I have determined that it is in our vital national interest..." and "...the commitment to forge an America that is safer, a world that is more secure..."Ok, ok, interesting words such as vital, safer, more secure. I feel all warm and fuzzy already.

But wait. Didn't General McChrystal request 40,000 troops?

Let's be honest, gang. The 25% less is an appeal to his surrenderista base in the Defeatocrat Party. Doofus not only is playing politics with the safety of this country (and the Free World), but also with the lives of our troops. A 10,000 troop bone was just tossed to Michael Moore and Friends.

And don't you think for a moment that the troops in-country won't get the reality of The South-Side Stooge's message loud and clear: You're expected to fight and win with 25% less troop strength, small arms ammunition, artillery rounds, armor and all other vehicles, air support, rations, medical supplies, fuel, commo gear, etc.

Oh, and you have 18 months to get it done.
Doofus thinks he can win this war on the cheap. The only thing cheap to obama is the security of this country and the lives of our fighting men.

I couldn't agree more...

I knew Zero wasn't going to give the full troops after waiting this long...of course he is Zero, could I expect anything more?

This was predictable. I don't mean the exact number the Zero zeroed in on, but that it would be less than the requested number of troops.

An important thing that people forget is that Afghanistan is called the graveyard of empires. We went in there originally (allegedly) to get Osama bin Laden. Unfortunately, the previous Administration played political footsies with the Northern Alliance and the near mythical central gov't of Afghanistan in the hunt for Obama and his boys.

The U.S. conquered the Taliban with Special Forces and Army Rangers ably assisted by the good old USMC before conventional Army light infantry (e.g., 10th Mtn Division) was inserted in-country. Instead of putting the USMC or elements of the 10th Mtn Division later on the Pakistani side of Tora Bora, our gov't "allowed" the Afghan Army (full of Taliban sympathizers) to act as a blocking force on the Pakistan side of those same mountains. The result is our failure to capture an eminently capturable war criminal. So we switched missions to nation building in an area of the world that has NEVER been a nation.

I wanted Prezbo to give General M. the 40,000 troops he needed long enough to stabilize the fragile situation in Afghanistan and offer us an avenue out of that cursed land. Now it will be another "waist deep in the big muddy" experience for our Armed Forces. They do not deserve this . . . again.

So next time the generals learn that they need to add 25% for whatever they request. they have learned they are dealing with a community organizer playing commander in cheif. But wait, the apolgist is loved by the world so we can be certain countries will be lining up to support this new "restarted" USA under Obama. I am sure they will send a number to match Obama because of all the love. Why we might even get some muslim countries to help us beat the evil folks who are distorting their true religion.

He is not trying to win the war he is playing politics.

He gave the generals less troops so he could show them and his supporters he was calling the shots, that he was a leader.

He announced a pull out date to appease his supporters who want the war ended, 18 months will take him reasonably close to the build up to the next election which he is already thinking about how to win.

Pulling out of stan by then will allow him to campaign as the president who ended the wars.

In Afghanistan the Taliban now know they have won, all they have to do is play dead for 18 months and prepare to take over once America leaves. Which in the mean time will allow Obama to tell the world how HIS plan to send only 30,000 troops is working and Afghanistan is more secure all thanks to HIS plan.

Also now Afghanis supporting the US now know they are going to be abandoned to the Taliban and so you can expect support for the US to all put cease, no one is going to risk their life for someone who they know is going to abandon them to the wolves in 18 months time.

Afghanistan will get a lot better, president Obama will look good, then the US will leave and the Taliban will takeover. But you won't hear about that in the news because no one is interested once we are not directly involved over there.

All of which will set him up nicely for re-election.

I forgot about this. How can anybody be such a dufus, even the incumbent President, as to announce to the enemy when we are quitting? Geez.

The man believes he farts rainbows. I'm here to say it's really all crap.

Obomama changes his mind all the time, or if not doing that, then he doens't make up his mind the rest of the time. He also is reducing abortions per his promises by increasing abortions ... a marvel of modern political wizardry.

Thus, nobody knows what he will do ... this is what I call real down home fighting.

Now, if only Obomama himself knew what he was doing, then we'd be awright.
