Here it comes. Obama's Afghanistan. See this post: Civilian, Military Officials at Odds Over Resources Needed for Afghan Mission
That was yesterday.
Worst. President. Ever.
Barack Obama now says that the Taliban killers should be part of the Afghan government. [...]
Take a look at Gateway's post...he has a very special video of how the Taliban treat their women.
President Barack Obama is prepared to accept some Taliban involvement in Afghanistan's political future and will determine how many more U.S. troops to send to the war based only on keeping al-Qaida at bay, a senior administration official said Thursday. [...]
[...] Mr Obama appears to have been swayed in recent days by arguments from some advisers, led by Vice-President Joe Biden, that the Taleban do not pose a direct threat to the US and that there should be greater focus on tackling al-Qaeda inside Pakistan. [...]
I thought we were there to kill and eliminate the Taliban, not play freaking footsies with them and add them to the Obama Official Terrorist's No pre-condition list, especially on the 8 year anniversary of the war's beginning yesterday.
Now all of a sudden these people make good negotiating partners with the United States and it's allies after 800 dead and tens of thousands of wounded warriors?

They don't want to be seen as bugging out, so they're going to leave our troops in the meat-grinder without any actual intention to resource and reinforce them and give them a chance at actually accomplishing anything besides defending the Democratic Party's interests.
If Obama wants to lose the war that must be won, as he used to declare hourly -- which he plainly does -- he should do our troops the courtesy of removing them from harm's way completely, rather that letting them twist in the wind in a war he's already decided to lose.
As John Kerry once asked -- "Who wants to be the last man to die for a lie?"
He ought to ask himself and our gutless worm of a president that question anew. [END]
I wrote about this yesterday and what I wrote has come true. This is disgusting.

Sic vis pacem para bellum
I stand with the Republican house leadership on this issue, and wish folks would take the time to contact their congressional representatives or at least the ones mentioned in this piece to let them know you support them.
The reason is simple. For as long as I can remember members of congress have always tagged distasteful legislation onto and in the defense appropriations bill, although most of the time it comes in the shape of some pet pork barrel project rather then some sort feel good touchy feely legislation like this case.
