Obama orders escalation, and then withdrawal
#1 Dec 2, 2009
I guess Obama knows more about military strategy than General McChrystal. McChrystal asked for 40,000 more troops but Obama only authorizes 34,000. McChrystal didn't set a deadline but Obama says 18 months. What military experience does our commander in chief have? Did he graduate from West Point (like the general)? Did he serve in special forces (like the general)? I could go on citing the general's resume but what's the point?
You fight a war to win. You don't fight a war with politically driven limitations or restrictions. That was what caused our failure in Vietnam.

Escalation and then withdrawel. One more politically based decision, attempting to make EVERYBODY happy at once and the losers are our military. There is a child running the country with the assitance of a handful of peabrains (Biden, Palosi, Reid and Holder) 2012 cannot get here fast enough.

By the way, I couldn't help but notice the subtly of the story headline. "Ejaculation, and then withdrawal"?

That was the single most wishy washy speech I have ever heard. Of course-it only took 90 days for him to come up with "we are going in-then leaving>"
He doesnt want to come off sounding "DECISIVE" now does he!
(PS-pro oblama endorsers, are you happy with your "CHANGE"?)
LMAO-poor obamalamadingdong is etching himself into history as "golfing and taking his wife out"...rather than making ANY decisive moves to help americans.
(oh but I forgot about HEALTH CARE and CLIMATE CHANGE)
JOKES ON YOU LIBERALS!

Interesting how his "withdrawel" coincides with the next election.
CHANGE! Ha Ha, jokes on you!

How many years will it take obama to start the "STIMULUS">> >
Is that off until the next election too? I mean-by then the economy will have righted itself!
I agree with Kornblum's point! Seems that all obama is doing is trying to make sure alot of stuff happens...RIGHT BEFORE THE NEXT ELECTION...but nothing now!
What a moron-then he can say he did everything he said he was going to...even though he didnt do a damned thing!
obama sucks-dems know it-reps know it-libertarians know it-even a few liberals are catching on! That-is an amazing thing right there! Liberals are too stupid to find their fingers up their asses-or maybe that is obamas finger!

Injecting more troops into Afganistan is a move that needwed to be done. Should the Taliban get complete control of that country, they then would have a much larger base to operate from to help bring down the USA. Have we forgotten 9-11? What don't people understand about outsiders who want desperatly to bring down the USA?
To please the ney sayers, must we ignor defense stratagies and just wait to be taken by a foreign power? Heck, any good Boy-Scout knows the need for offensive maneuvers. I believe it is known as "Survival of the Fittest" and we (The USA) can only survive if we are infact the fittest.
President Obama certainly did not make this decision alone. Many intelligent minds weighed in on this decision. We MUST WIN this war, and if we miscalculate this matter, look for BIG changes in our way of life as we know it today.

Yeah right. And we must win it by July 2011 or then what? Obama gives a good speach, he just doesn't have any substance and lies like any other politician. The Islamic Fascist can lay low for 18 months and make The Glorious Leader Obama look like a chump. Time will be on thier side now that this idiot has set a date line.

As another poster had pointed out-its amazing how his main plan is to pull out in time for re-election. All obama is doing-and HAS DONE-is run for the 2012 election. There is nothing else on his agenda! Economy? Nah-its bullshit-I dont care I just need to kill time and then pull off a few amazing feats at the END of the term!
Tell me-does he ever do anything except campaign for re-election and kiss up to foreign countries?
Seriously-WHAT HAS HE DONE? I have never gotten an answer on this from any liberals....
