Obama's Silly Little Rant

Peter Wehner / Commentary: A Fighting Chance

The decision President Obama made was better than the speech he gave. What will matter, long after his address is forgotten, is that Barack Obama gave Generals McChrystal and Petraeus, two of our greatest military minds, the troops (30,000, plus additional allied troops) and strategy (counterinsurgency) they need to prevail in Afghanistan.

To the president’s credit, this is the second wave of troops he has sent to Afghanistan (in February, he approved sending 17,000). Mr. Obama, in siding with McChrystal and Petraeus, wisely ignored the counsel of his vice president, Joe Biden, whose 35-year track record on national-security matters is an almost unbroken string of unwise decisions. And the president made a decision that puts him at odds with his liberal/left-wing base, which seems as eager to lose in Afghanistan as it was eager to lose in Iraq. [...]

Whatever.  Giving General McChrystal HALF of what was required, I suppose, is a fighting chance.  Giving General McChrystal exactly what is needed would have placed Obama in a tight squeeze with his idiot base.  So, where's the Fighting Chance?

Obama pissed off the Right and the Left last night.  Obama is in fact an effete futz.  Period.

JAG at JWF:  Gen McChrystal Identifies The Enemy

Riding Out the Obama Surge

Senator John McCain is among many to have expressed the obvious with regard to Obama’s pending Afghanistan surge: A rapid deployment of 30 thousand troops with a concrete withdraw date shortly thereafter sends a mixed message to the world.

To the Taliban and al-Qaeda forces the Obama plan sends a singular message: Now is a good time for a vacation. What fool would engage the surge troops when he has the option of riding out the surge? Now may be the perfect time for that winter vacation in sunny Dubai. Terrorists may be many things, but they are not stupid.

Based on their stated goals and years spent planning the attack on 9/11 it’s apparent that the Islamist terrorists do not share America’s “fast food” mindset in their quest to overthrow the West. [...]

A military mother's take on the president's speech

[...] "Somewhere out there a man died for me today, that I might live free. And I must ask and answer, 'Am I worth dying for?'"

I remember sitting in my seat, riveted by reading the words, and the impact they made on my heart, lasts even still today. And I wonder about all those in the field of battle today and for our children, whose hearts are as cold as stone over the course that lies ahead. I wonder, has our President ever thought of the price of duty that he asks of us today, with no end game or victory in sight, and whether anyone serving wants to give a life so cheaply? For if we are not in this war to win, and see to it that our enemies are clear about the cost of attacking the freedom of our nation, then we would be much better off not having begun the battle. And yet as I write those words I think of all who purchased my freedom and how I desire that my children and grandchildren live in freedom.

You see, Mr. President, that is why we serve. We only ask that you do not see our children and our family members as good photo op! [END]

Video Wrap of Opinion of Obama’s Afghan Speech

A Disservice to the Truth

[...] "In his speech to the nation last night, President Obama claimed that ‘Commanders in Afghanistan repeatedly asked for support to deal with the reemergence of the Taliban, but these reinforcements did not arrive.'  Such a bald misstatement, at least as it pertains to the period I served as Secretary of Defense, deserves a response.

"I am not aware of a single request of that nature between 2001 and 2006.  If any such requests occurred, ‘repeated' or not, the White House should promptly make them public.  The President's assertion does a disservice to the truth and, in particular, to the thousands of men and women in uniform who have fought, served and sacrificed in Afghanistan.

"In the interest of better understanding the President's announcement last night, I suggest that the Congress review the President's assertion in the forthcoming debate and determine exactly what requests were made, who made them, and where and why in the chain of command they were denied. [...]

That was Donald Rumsfeld.  In other words...bite me Czarboe.

Pusillanimous Lack of Leadership by President Obama at West Point

Last night at West Point, President Obama had a golden opportunity to demonstrate that the world’s only superpower is lead by a tough, determined, world leader, able to make difficult decisions. Instead, President Obama chose to take a hedged, triangulated position between those in America that support the war in Afghanistan and those that oppose it. There was more nuance in the President’s address than there was determination and resolve, which is unfortunate for America and for international security around the globe.

There really are no good options for America and the situation in Afghanistan. Looking backwards into the rearview mirror does us no good; we are where we are and fair or not, the President is forced to look ahead and play the hand he has been dealt. As evidenced by the delay and lengthy deliberation regarding additional troop commitments, President Obama is learning that it is more difficult to actually lead a nation than it is to merely campaign to lead a nation. [...]

Fred Kaplan / Slate: But where does it end?

In the real world, the fight ends when one side has won the war.  In the libtard world, there is no winning because someone else might get their feelings hurt.

[...] This complaint misreads the policy. The key word in Obama's speech was that in July 2011, the United States will "begin" to transfer responsibility for security to the Afghan forces. The pace of this transfer—how quickly we will continue to withdraw and at what point we'll get out altogether—will be determined by "conditions on the ground." (Obama may not have underscored this phrase, but in a background press briefing earlier in the day, "senior officials" emphasized it strongly; one predicted that it would be the most misunderstood and misreported part of the speech.) [END]

If that is the case, than the asshole should have said that in the speech at West Point.  Period.  Why leacve everything up in the air?  Did he not think that the libtards were watching the speech.  I know Freddie was.

[...] Clearly, the president was in a tight spot when writing this speech. He had to assure the American people that the war is not an "open-ended" commitment; yet at the same time, he had to assure the Afghans and Pakistanis that he'll be with them for as long as necessary. He handled the tension as agilely as anyone might have; but the resulting suspicions, on both sides, suggest that there may be no real way to resolve the contradiction. The politics of this war will be a balancing act from start to finish. [...]

Bullshit.  Leave the politics OUT of the war and the war will be won.  End of discussion.  I hate politicians.  Really.  I do.

Michael Crowley / The New Republic: The Day After: A Hollow Withdrawal Pledge Comes Into Focus

[...] And then there was Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who in her testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee this morning, was asked by Republican Senator Lindsey Graham whether the July 2011 had "locked us in" to a withdrawal. "I do not believe we have locked ourselves in to leaving," Clinton responded, before repeating the core administration talking point: "By July 2011 there can be the beginning of a responsible transition that will of course be based on conditions." But "the beginning of a responsible transition" can mean almost anything. In theory it can be nothing more than a changing-of-the-guard ceremony at the airport.

Or it can mean something like what Defense Secretary Robert Gates described this morning at that Senate hearing. Asked by John McCain whether July 2011 amounts to an "an arbitrary date" to begin a transition. Gates replied that the national security team concluded "that we would be in a position, particularly in uncontested areas, where we would be able to begin that transition." Note the emphasis: particularly in uncontested areas. Yes, one would certainly hope that America can withdraw from areas the Taliban aren't even contesting within eighteen months. But there won't be many American troops in those places to begin with. People hoping that this war will come to a swift end beginning in the summer of 2011 would do well to understand that now, or risk severe disappointment down the road. [...]

Shut the fuck up Michael.  Are we going to win the war or are we to listen to libtards whine and bitch?

Doctor Zero: The rhetoric of failure

Obama’s Afghanistan speech last night would have been adequate for a department store manager, informing the staff that extra help would be hired for the big Going Out of Business sale next year. It wasn’t very inspiring as a war speech. Inspiration is very important in warfare. As a modern liberal with an academic background, Obama sees military operations as unpleasant administrative chores, to be resolved rather than won… but Afghanistan is more than a distraction from the fun industry-nationalizing, trillion-dollar aspects of the President’s job, and resolution is never as inspiring as victory.

All military engagements boil down to questions of morale. Superior forces and technology are useful when they help to break the enemy’s morale. Wars are not won by killing every single member of the opposing army… especially when that “army” consists of raiding parties scattered through the civilian population, or terrorist sharks lurking in the calm waters of the American homeland. Even killing the enemy’s leadership does not bring automatic victory, because a motivated enemy who isn’t ready to surrender can always find new leadership. [...]

[...] I doubt the cadets suffering through Obama’s speech at West Point will have their spirits broken by the experience, but their parents – and the enemies of America – heard no talk of victory, and in wartime the only alternative to victory is defeat. Both at home and abroad, the argument that people should do their best, even though they can’t possibly win, will never be compelling or inspirational. A nation that still has fire coursing through its veins is hungry for inspiration, and will have to starve a little longer. [END]

I brought all of the above to your attention to tell you all, in the end of this article, that I hate Barack Hussein Obama.  There is nothing that this "man"(?) does that is constitutional.  Nothing.  He is sending men to Afghanistan because we have to because they atacked us.  Well?  Using the libtard approach here, all those people are dead now.  They died in NYC, the Pentagon and PA.

Anyway, sending half the Troops required by General McChrystal isn't good enough.  I fought there.  I got blown up there.  I came home in 2004, crippled.  I know what the enemy there is like and they are the same enemies we have everywhere else.  They suck so are we going to win or what?  Why didn't Obama use the word "victory" in his pathetic little whining ass rant at West Point?

Obama.  ASSHAT!
