Finally, Afghanistan

Enough Already, Bill Meradeia. I'm sick of your liberal posts. I'm calling on all my three loyal readers to blanket his site, with Hate emails, spam complaints and negative responses. Obama will announce a decision to increase troop levels in our war soon. Oops, I mean obama. Now, I'm not going to pretend that spending three months forming a strategy was a bad idea. But I knew what needed to be done in Afghanistan six months ago. Increased troops, more Arabic, Farsi and Pashtun speakers to train the locals, and more bribe money. Lots more bribe money. The Taliban warlords have allied themselves with heroin druglords, after the first group of conservative scholars were killed or removed during the last eight years. The people controlling the fundamentalist militias now are even more insane than the ones who planned 9/11. We need to win this war, America.

  1. Take this to the bank:

    We will lose the war in Afghanistan. Every human being who is dying for this cause is dying in vain. England and Russia learned this lesson a long time ago. You would think....N­ever mind.

    Suffice to say, I don't receive half the information Obama receives. I don't read all of (or any of) the Presidential Daily Briefings that are placed on his desk every morning. Maybe he knows something that I don't. I am not doubting that as a distinct possibility. But from where I sit it would seem to me that this president has failed to learn the historical lessons taught to us by the administrations of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Lyndon Baines Johnson - lessons involving bold action in times of economic crisis, and the utter folly of trying to win wars that cannot be won.

    I want to believe in this guy but the sad fact of the matter is that I am quickly losing confidence in my president. Where the heck is all this change I could believe in? Are the Republicans still in charge? What gives?
