Marines to be first wave in new Afghanistan plan

Full story: Pasadena Star-News

New infusions of U.S. Marines will begin moving into Afghanistan almost as soon as President Barack Obama announces a redrawn battle strategy, a plan widely expected to include more than 30,000 additional U.S. forces.

What in the world is this fool Obama thinking of. His choosen commander tells him he need 40,000 troops to fight a war. Obama a known coward who associates with cowards, stands tall and says I will help, here is 3/4 of what you actually need. Now if it does not work it is because you couldn't make it happen.
To bad this A**hole could not stand up to the fools in congress and cut the pork in the stimulus bill to 3/4. We might actually be in a recovery by now, with real jobs instead of government hand outs.
Obama is starting to make Jimmy Carter look better. Jeez!!

Semper Fi--Boys--Go in there and kick ass and take names, we want Al Quaida killed, and Afghanistan to recognize and respect international law by not allowing terrorists to use a failed state as a base.

The failure to pacify Afghanistan and capture or kill the Al Quaida leadership is the greatest failure, among so many, of the Cheney-Bush Adminstration. We need to get this job done and get the hell out.

The Obama hating nut fringe doesn't like this Afghan straTegy, nor our does our psychotic former failure Cheney, but neither does the peacenik whacky crowd with the Democrats, so he's probably doing the right thing, again.

Bring them home, bring them all home, and not just the troops in the Middle East, but all our troops. If America is broke, which we are, then we need to cut costs, cut costs now, and start by bringing home all our fine men and women. Next, I recommend shutting down the United Nations, as well as stop sending money overseas. We are broke, and we need to stop spending. My final recommendation is to enact meaningful tariffs, as change our tax system so that we penalize companies for outsourcing, use the tariff money to reduce our debt, and by enacting meaningful tariffs and tax laws, American jobs will begin to grow again!

And for all you global folks, the world does not care about us, never has, never will...

Protectionism? Why because you don't have any faith in American workers and companies? Withdraw from the world, what foolishness. And pull out with Al Quaida still in charge of Afghanistan, what rubbish. Let's all just bury our heads in the sand because it's too much work anw we're too poor, twaddle, as usual from those who are afraid of the big real world. Grow up.

Go Marines-get this job done.
