From the Rose Garden, President Barack Obama outlined a timetable for the gradual withdrawal of the last U.S. troops in Afghanistan and said confidently, “This is how wars end in the 21st century.”
than three weeks after his May 27 announcement, there is a sudden burst
of uncertainty surrounding the way Obama has moved to bring the two
conflicts he inherited to a close.
First and foremost, modern American Presidents need to learn that a
'war' is NOT over, when they draw a line on a calendar, and say, "...I
want all the troops out by this date, and this is how wars end in the
What a waist fresh air is a statement like THAT!?
war is 'over', Mr. Obama, when your enemy is so demoralized by you
killing him and his people that he and they NEVER want to take you on
again!!! Since August of 1945, we have totally, utterly and absolutely
forgotten that simple fact.
And that we have allowed each
successive generation of young men, and now young women, to be sent out
to fight in our country's name, by men who do NOT fight to beat our
enemies to that ultimate finish is a failure of them to fulfill their
oath of office IMNSHO.
When we elect men who do NOT fight wars
to a WWII style win, who do not run that enemy down and ruin their view
of WHAT or WHO they are fighting for, then they are not fulfilling
their oath of office. It is their failing that we are then living under
even more dangerous situations with that enemy and others made bold BY
that President's failure.
However, when we RE-elect them, it is OUR fault that those enemies, both new and old, kill our sons and daughters.
am NOT a proponent of nuking our current enemies, the World's
Islamofascists. Mainly because they do NOT have a 'city' that is their
'capital'. Nor do they have a needed shipping port, or other strategic
spot to hit that will hurt their 'nation'. Their only nation is Hate.
our ONLY hope is to put every man possible IN the field in Iraq and
Afghanistan to kill as many people who we can, on a field of battle, who
stand up and fight. The 'surge' worked before, it will work again.
And, if the people at the center of our fields of battle, Iran, want to
get involved, they DO have a capital and strategic places we can bomb to
solve many of our problems in that part of the world.
Iran IS the cause, and the main backer, of the majority of the World's Islamofascist trouble.
Mr. Obama has certainly ensured us of more NEW enemies and emboldened
old ones. And that he and his advisers think that getting into ANY kind
of 'agreements' with the Iranian government is a good idea, shows just
how slow witted they are and how little they understand what the word
But telling the American Citizens that 'X' war is
over on 'Y' day 'because I say so', is perhaps the dumbest thing ever
said by the country's smartest President.
