WASHINGTON — President Obama plans to lay out a timeframe for ultimately winding down the American involvement in the war in Afghanistan when he announces his decision this week to send more forces, senior administration officials said Sunday. [...]
The Obama administration has soured on a call from its top commander to double the size of the Afghan police and army, reflecting the White House’s continued skepticism about the Afghan government even as the U.S. prepares a surge of troops into the country, people familiar with the matter say.
At an address at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point on Tuesday, President Barack Obama is expected to announce that he will send roughly 30,000 American reinforcements to Afghanistan in addition to the 21,000 he deployed early in his administration. The escalation would bring total U.S. forces to some 100,000, the largest American troop deployment to Afghanistan since the 2001 invasion that toppled the Taliban government. [...]
Do you see that POS salute? Figures. Damned community organizers.
At least in Iraq the people knew they were getting the”All Saddam All The Time” channel. That’s how dictatorships work. I can’t imagine that “Guilters” (the “white guilt” constituency who elected Obama) believed they were going to get this much of “His Half-Blackness” on their TV sets…all the time!
Because Obama believes he has a mandate from the Guilters, we are treated to “All Obama All The Time” news, the only difference being that he warns us when something is really important, by telling us about it in advance. [...]
Freshman Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) wants the US to cut-and-run from Afghanistan. He will give a speech later today urging the US to bring the troops home. What a loon. [...]
[...] “I can take pot shots at [Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now] all day long, and I’m good at it,” Chaffetz said. “But even though I am probably going against where the party is on this traditionally, I just think we need to stand up and support the notion that it is time to bring our soldiers home.” [...]
Another moron that seems to think it is The Party that will "suffer". In the Jason Chaffetz rant, he doesn't mention Victory that is soon at hand. Everyone needs to evict this squeamish turtle turd.
Perhaps if Nobama does what many seem to think he is going to do, perhaps we should look at this article that Dean sent to me the other day and what Macsmind also addresses:
[...] And to Obama’s “last ditch gambit”, these reports continue, he is to announce in a nationwide address to his people this coming week that he is going to expand the level of US Military Forces in Afghanistan by tens of thousands of troops, while at the same time using the deployment of these soldiers as a “cover” for returning to the United States over 200,000 additional American soldiers from the over 800 bases in over 39 countries they have stationed around the Globe bringing the level of these forces in America to over 1 million, a number the US Military believes will be able to contain the “explosion of violence” expected to roil these peoples when they learn their economy has been bankrupted. [...]
Remember...I have been mentioning this for at least since the year 2000 and I have been talking of such a thing for at least 30 years.

Barack Obama will use his speech at West Point to conduct a delicate balancing act on Afghanistan and Pakistan. On one hand, he will commit more than 30,000 more troops to the war, which should earn the approval of Gen. Stanley McChrystal and those tasked with implementing the COIN strategy Obama has long demanded. He will also start working towards an American exit, according to the New York Times, which may lessen the disapproval from the anti-war Left, but will also undermine whatever good Obama’s troop escalation will do: [...]
After all this time, it appears to me that Obama still can't make up his mind about what to do in Afghanistan.
On the one hand, he will have a timetable for withdrawal not dependent on any progress that occurs on the ground. But he will also say that the timetable will not be as rigid as it is in Iraq, where all forces are to be withdrawn by the end of 2011.
How can you do both? I'm sure our president will explain everything. [...]
We shall see what The Fraud Nobama will do today.
