Afghanistan. It's pathetic. Either we have a CIC that knows what in the hell he's doing or we just bring the Troops home so they can act here stateside...we need them badly. The problem with that is we will be back. As Czarboe and his inability to respond/react accordingly because he is stuck speaks out about womens rights...
[...] The best of Americans are sitting ducks under the Obama regime. And stop the insane immigration of Afghans into America. [...]
B-R-I-N-G T-H-E-M H-O-M-E.
Hundreds of protesters in Kabul burn an effigy of President Obama, a sign of rising religious conservatism and anti-Americanism in the country. The U.S. military denies any sacrilege took place. [...]
There. That should do something to the effette futz. Sacrilege? SACRILEGE? I don't remember any SACRILEGE when Bush was burned in effigy. You remember anything like that? Sacrilege. For burning Obama. Please.
So much for Hope and Change…Obama torched. [...]
On Obama's most costly error of his worthless life...
So let me be clear about the cost of delay:
First, while Obama has deliberated, troops he has previously described as “under resourced” are fighting and dying…and still under resourced.
Second, the Taliban are terrorizing civilians in those areas that lack significant or any coalition force presence and very courageous political leaders at the local governance level are left defenseless.
Third, we may miss the window of opportunity presented by the traditional Taliban operational pause in December and January.
Fourth, we exponentially complicate the deployment and reception of the 40,000 troops as ships have to be ordered, planes scheduled, operating bases built, and supplies delivered.
Fifth, had Obama acted promptly, he may have had additional troops to help with the election runoff agreed upon this week.
Sixth, with each day that Stan McChrystal’s request goes unanswered, the president gives the green light for his legions of political hacks and pudgy pundits, none of whom can hold McChrystal’s jock strap, to malign the general and minimize both his stature and his assessment. No biggie to McChrystal personally, but the enemy makes hay with this kind of thing in the terrorist recruiting world. [...]
I was going to place some of this trash here on the site but I thought better of it. Go there and read the trash. It's typical. The far left Marxist assholes, the least in numbers that we have in this country are whining about the Global War On Terror and it is these mutants that will be the first to go when Shar'ia LAw coomes to the USA. Amazing and Obama is listening to the screeching yelps of nowhere land.
Vice President Joe Biden, for supposed foreign policy wonk in the Obama Administration, can’t find a single military strategist to sign off on his Afghanistan plan. [...]
If you want to see just how little credence Vice President Joe Biden's plan for Afghanistan has inside military circles, look no further than this paragraph from an article written by Peter Spiegel and Yochi Dreazen for the Wall Street Journal:
People familiar with the internal debates say Mr. Obama rejected a strictly counter-terror approach during White House deliberations in early October. One official said Pentagon strategists were asked to draft brief written arguments making the best case for each strategy, but the strategists had difficulties writing out a credible case for the counter-terror approach -- prompting members of Mr. Biden's staff to step in and write the document themselves.
In case that wasn't clear, not a single strategist in the Pentegon was willing to draft a paper to defend the Biden plan. No one wanted to put their name on the document. So, members of Biden's staff -- political appointees -- had to write the brief.
In a remote part of Helmand troops are dismayed by the ambivalence of locals and a sense that the Taliban can outlast them [...]
No word of Obama in the article and why Obama is such a lunkhead.

Way to go Afghanistan!
It has begun. President Karzai questioned if the US is a reliable partner today on CNN. With Obama in charge, we’re all sort of wondering the same thing. [...]
Afghanistan's President Hamid Karzai questioned the reliability of the United States as a partner Sunday, as he fought off criticism of his government's legitimacy following fraud-marred elections.
Karzai's main challenger, former foreign minister Abdullah Abdullah, warned in an interview with CNN that the US strategy will not succeed without a credible partner in Kabul, blaming Karzai for deteriorating conditions.
But underscoring the political headache that Washington faces if Karzai wins a run-off against Abdullah next month, Karzai pointed the finger at the United States in a separate, pre-recorded CNN interview.
"Is the United States a reliable partner with Afghanistan? Is the West a reliable partner with Afghanistan?" Karzai asked. "Have we received the commitments that we were given? Have we been treated like a partner?"
Karzai said a partnership to him was "where the Afghan lives are respected, where Afghan property is respected, where the Afghan traditions are respected, where we know the direction we are moving to." [...]
Gee. I wonder what the meeting was like last week with The One. Must have been very revealing.
