It’s official: the worthless assclown in the White House has no intention of winning the war against Islamic aggression and terrorism.
……Obama is prepared to accept some Taliban involvement in Afghanistan’s political future and appears inclined to send only as many more U.S. troops as needed to keep al-Qaida at bay, a senior administration official said Thursday.
……Though aides stress that the president’s final decision on any changes is still at least two weeks away, the emerging thinking suggests that he would be very unlikely to favor a large military increase of the kind being advocated by the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, Gen. Stanley McChrystal.
McChrystal’s troop request is said to include a range of options, from adding as few as 10,000 combat troops to — the general’s strong preference — as many as 40,000.
Obama’s developing strategy on the Taliban will “not tolerate their return to power,” the senior official said in an interview with The Associated Press. But the U.S. would fight only to keep the Taliban from retaking control of Afghanistan’s central government — something it is now far from being capable of — and from giving renewed sanctuary in Afghanistan to al-Qaida, the official said.
……Bowing to the reality that the Taliban is too ingrained in Afghanistan’s culture to be entirely defeated, the administration is prepared, as it has been for some time, to accept some Taliban role in parts of Afghanistan, the official said. That could mean paving the way for Taliban members willing to renounce violence to participate in a central government — though there has been little receptiveness to this among the Taliban. It might even mean ceding some regions of the country to the Taliban.
The Taliban acquired the ‘cultural ingraining’ through intimidation and brutality. It’s one of the mujahideen groups that formed during the war against the Soviets. Shortly after the Soviet pullout, a civil war ensued. Of the warring factions, the Taliban prevailed and proceeded to subject local populations to savage treatment. Sharia Law was established; television, music, and the Internet were banned. Men were required to wear beards, and subjected to beatings if they didn’t. Girls were forbidden to go to school. Women could not work outside the home, or venture out without a male relative. Women who violated the edicts were beaten or shot to death, by officers of the “ministry for the protection of virtue and prevention of vice.”
Like its sister organization, al Qaeda, it’s involved in world-wide terrorism. They are connected and have conducted joint training and terrorist operations.
Right now, the message to American troops in Afghanistan is “we’re pulling the plug on you”. Morale is sinking because of the lack of support from the Democrat-controlled legislature and the Pretender-in-Chief.
In his effort to cut and run, Obama is trying to concoct a difference between Al Qaeda and the Taliban. Even though we’ve pushed Al Qaeda out, he’d rather acquiesce chunks of Afghanistan to the Taliban rather than give General McCrystal what he needs to win. According to liberals Afghanistan was the ‘good war’. In reality, any war for the survival and protection of Western civilization is never good enough.
I said this before: Obama was left with a winning hand in both Iraq and Afganistan. This war is his to lose and he’s wasting no time doing just that. He’s pandering to the “world” (READ: improving our “image”), at the expense of our national interests and security.
Leftwingnuts will not be happy until the United States hits rock bottom with a devastated economy and our sovereignty is totally diminished.
They look upon this as being a humbling experience for our impudence; defying the world in the face of Islamic terrorism and daring to take on the Al Qaeda and the Taliban when the rest of the “world” wasn’t too keen on the effort.
After Obama’s ousting in 2012, it will take decades to unfuck all the damage he’ll have done.

We are not dictators and we cannot rule the world.
George Bush took us to a wrongful war in Iraq. We all know that.
He could have defeated AlQuaeda had he not been so driven to divert to Iraq.
Lies about Weapons of Mass Destruction.
Lies to get his crony contractors (eg Blackwater & Halliburton & others) to actually run the war and murder innocent civilians, all for their own monetary gain.
We finally have a good man, an intelligent man, a patriot as our Commander in Chief. Even the generals agree!
We voted in Change. We vote for Peace in our country and around the world.
We voted out being military dictators around the world who want to enrich ourselves with oil and greed.
I have three nephews in Iraq. One who has served three tours of duty in Iraq.
My family believes in the military, in service for our country, the best in the world, land of the brave, home of the free. My family has served for generations and generations. But we still believe in Peace and Honor and we stand behind our President!
God Bless America!
God Bless OUR President, Barack Obama!
We never tried to be dictators or “rule the world”. We have, however, come to the aid of many nations in war and in peace, only to get ungrateful, visceral hatred in return.
You don’t know your ass from your elbow. Invading Iraq and Afghanistan was not only justified, but a necessary elimination of just two of the many terrorist nation-states. Al Qadea is bred, funded, trained and supported across the Middle East.
The “Bush lied” mantra is hackneyed and patently false. WE FOUND WMD, as well as proof of Hussein’s terrorist ties:
By the way, the now-in-hell Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, founded Al Qaeda in Iraq BEFORE we got there and AFTER we drove Al Qaeda out of Afghanistan. Sadly, there’s a whole segment of America who’s just as ignorant as you.
A “good, intelligent man”? Typical Obama sycophant. It takes a pretty sophisticated set of cerebral blinders to ignore that he’s an abject failure not just as a “leader” at home and on the world stage, but as a human being. Hell, even some of the most ardent liberal moonbats like Thomas Friedman and Ted Rall are pissed off at THE ONE. And you know it’s bad when France thinks you’re a pussy. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704471504574441402775482322.html
“Good”? Obama launched his career from the home of two domestic terrorists—William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn—and collaborates with radical groups like ACORN under the guise of “community organizing”.
He sat in a church for over 20 years listening to the sermons of a rabid moonbat (Jeremiah Wright) who “god-damned” America and railed against “whitey” and Jews.
Some of the world’s worst dictators and Islamic goons are head over heels for him. He accumulated Frank Marshall Davis, Hugo Chavez, Mahmoud Amahdinejad, Louis Farrakhan, Daniel Ortega, the Arab-American Action network, CAIR, and Hamas among his associates, admirers, supporters, and mentors. He’s a human bug light for despots, terrorists, and hate spewers. No wonder the Islamic extremists salivated for a ‘change’ they can believe in. His kowtowing to some of the worst despots on the planet makes Jimmy Carter pale in comparison.
“Intelligent”? He has the capacity of a naive 10 year old, and he believes his own press.
His economic policies are a distaster. We have 10% nation-wide unemployment while Mr. Hopey Changytude has implemented a socialist takeover of private industry and corporations, and will have given us (a projected) 23.7 trillion dollar deficit before he’s through ruining our economy. Don’t expect his government-run ObamaCare to pass. The American people know a rotten bill of goods when they see it, and we aren’t buying it.
“Patriotic”? Hardly. He and his myrmidons have done everything they can to squelch the First Amendment. Dissent and debate from protesters has been met with threats and intimidation. He has tried, but failed to silence American patriots fed up with his socialist tyranny. Why do you think millions of people across the country have participated in Tea Party rallies?
MY family believes in the military. Many of my relatives served in different branches, and I’m a retired Army Sergeant First Class who served two tours in Iraq. I was an Intelligence Analyst with considerable experience in counter-terrorism.
That’s why we believe in ‘Duty, Honor, Country”, and cannot stand behind a Marxist milksop like Obama. Even General Stanley McCrystal knows Obama is way out of his league when it comes to being a qualified Commander-in-Chief. http://sfcmac.wordpress.com/2009/10/10/obama-all-wee-weed-up-over-general-mccrystals-criticism/
Obama is a failure of epic proportions. He’s a disgrace and an embarassment.
Let’s recap: He’s taking our country to hell in a socialist handbasket. He’s destroying our national security and economy. He’s trampling the U.S. Constitution. Belligerant countries like Iran, North Korea, and Venezuela, continue to build up their nuke capabilities and laugh their asses off at Obama’s stupidity.
How’s that “change” really coming along for you?
You better pray to whatever god you worship, that with the help and determination of true American patriots like myself, may we be saved from the despicable assclown in the White House.
