As I’ve said before, Obama has no intention of winning this war.

U.S. and NATO Afghanistan commander Gen. Stanley McChrystal’s long-awaited report containing a request for additional troops on Saturday was submitted to the Pentagon, but the Defense Department will hold it until the Obama administration reconfigures its Afghan strategy.
Spokesman Lt. Col. Tadd Sholtis told media outlets today that McChrystal hand delivered the report to Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen and NATO Supreme Allied Commander Adm. James Stavridis.
In the report, which was leaked to the Washington Post on Monday, McChrystal warned of “mission failure” if the size of the allied force in Afghanistan remains the same.
The White House, however, has asserted that it will review the nation’s entire Afghan strategy before considering McChrystal’s request.But top Republican lawmakers have been pressuring the administration to act quickly.
“Right now the focus is on the strategic assessment itself. [The troop request] will be shelved until such time that the White House is ready,” a defense official told Reuters.
“It is not going to be addressed, or reviewed, or analyzed until the White House is ready to begin discussing it,” the official added.
This narcissistic buffoon would rather dismiss the advice of a seasoned military commander than admit he has no fucking strategy.
The solution to this is to commit as many troops as necessary, give them the go ahead to go into Waziristan and Pakistan to hunt down and kill as many Taliban as possible. Fly Predator missions. Use MOABs and MLRS. Dedicate this country to winning this war and sending the message that America will not run from its enemies. Muslim fanatic fucksticks started this war, we will finish it.
If Obama has one iota of decency, he’ll get the hell out of the way and let the Army do its job.
My guess is that he doesn’t.
