    So... I saw........... for months here in NorCal.. all these "moms" (many single women in Birkenstocks...nudgenudge)... dressed in black about no wars and vote for Obama, and fighting our own battles, and making the world hate us, and "more books less bombs", and "more clit less clash".. and blah blah ...

    Curious the outcry? Guess the kid buys into the whole "war on terror thing" afterall.

    Dig this part of the article: "[FONT=Verdana,Sans-serif]"I am absolutely convinced that you cannot solve the problem of Afghanistan, the Taliban, the spread of extremism in that region solely through military means," the president said in a White House interview with Toronto-based Canadian Broadcasting Corp."

    [/FONT][FONT=Verdana,Sans-serif]"President Barack Obama has approved adding about 17,000 U.S. troops"

    ... but mine goes to 11 type of mentality goin' on here.

    Who knew the dove was a bird of prey....

    [/FONT]
    My Way News - Obama OKs about 17,000 more troops for Afghanistan

    [FONT=Verdana,Sans-serif]The Obama administration is expected to announce on Tuesday that it will send one additional Army brigade and an unknown number of Marines to Afghanistan this spring and summer. Officials spoke on condition of anonymity ahead of the official announcement.

    I'm dying to hear from the pillow-biters in these parts, the justification for ANY military action in the Middle East....

    A fair question.... and I don't need the Bush, Rove, Halliburton, Cheney, neocon rhetoric.

    This is your boy (speaking to 99% of the LPSG audience) upping the ante in a Middle Eastern country....:240: Where's the "Peace, Love and Jerry" banter..

    I'm not hive poking... but feel/expect I'll get little defense, and instead more emotional blather, and little concrete justification for BO's (ooh ooh that smell) actions.

    Were you people paying attention to anything Obama said during the campaign?

    Time and again, he talked about getting the fuck out of Iraq, where we had no legitimate business being in the first place; and focusing our forces on Afghanistan, which we've long neglected since we first went after the Taliban and Bin Laden.

    He's always advocated an escalation of our military posture in that region, believing that it's been too thin for far too long due to the distraction of Iraq.

    This move should surprise absolutely nobody...he's just following through on exactly what he said he would do all along.

    Nothing to see here...move along. :rolleyes:

    Yup, that was pretty much his main foreign policy talking point...get out of Iraq and actually take care of Afghanistan and the border with Pakistan...so far, he's living up to that promise...not much to complain about if you voted for him

    God, face, you pick and choose what you want to hear, quote, remember and regurgitate.

    Obama said all along that we needed to draw down in Iraq, which was an unjustified war, and increase our commitment in Afghanistan, to combat terrorism. There's no change in game plan, no surprise, here.

    And thanks for the lovely 'pillow-biter' reference. That was charming in your typical fashion.

    Maybe, face, the reality of who Obama is as a politician is not exactly the caricature that you had perceived?

    I remember all those posts about socialism and every other attempted smear, but I thought you actually knew that your were just engaging in attack politics. So, you actually believed all that? Gosh. You are in for a "surprise" a week, I think.

    Direct from the horse's mouth.

    (notes from the campaign trail)


    "We have seen Afghanistan worsen, deteriorate. We need more troops there. We need more resources there ... I would send two to three additional brigades to Afghanistan".... Barack Obama (Sept. 26, 2008)


    "Our nation is fighting two wars. There are terrorists who are determined to kill as many Americans as they can. The world's most dangerous weapons risk falling into the wrong hands. And that is why the single greatest priority of my presidency will be doing anything and everything that I can to keep the American people safe.

    Our military is overstretched in Iraq. We have nearly 150,000 troops in Iraq, many on their second, third, or fourth tour of duty. Meanwhile, Afghanistan is sliding towards chaos, and risks turning into a narco-terrorist state. The Taliban is on the offensive in the south. A recent Taliban prison break in Kandahar freed hundreds of militants, and underscored the volatile situation on the ground. The coalition casualties in Afghanistan last month were higher than in Iraq. That's the result of the Bush-McCain approach to the war on terrorism... We need more resources in Afghanistan. I have been arguing for this since 2002, when I said that we should finish the fight against al Qaeda and the Taliban instead of going into Iraq".... Barack Obama, June 18, 2008

    Yup, that's pretty much the non-news here. Obama has never claimed to be a dove. He has always claimed that we should have finished the war against terrorist and left-over Taliban in Afghanistan.

    Flame away, Faceking. We expect nothing less from you.

    Gee, thanx for the taunt Face, it's nice to know that you delight in confronting liberals with their entirely bullshit philosophy. I absolutely had no idea that I am as dumb as a box of rocks, thanx for letting me in on that.

    And to answer the post, like Hazelgod said... Obama ALWAYS talked about escalating the war in Afghanistan. It is my opinion that he must appease the industrial military complex or else deleterious consequences could befall his administration or family ala MLK, Wellstone or a shitload of other people that have died while in strong opposition to the IMC.

    What he is really doing is opening up a front in Pakistan on the sly so that he can actually catch and kill members of Al Queda and disrupt the terror networks that eminate from there. Afghanistan needs drastic political help... they are having a dickens of a time setting up a democracy and it might bot ever work. Barack is gonna give it one last big shot before we all just give up on "democracy" in the middle East and let them kill each other.

    Oh and by the way Face, awesome quad development in your avi pic... why are your thighs so ripped?

    Hey Facey!! Ya :wank:'er you.....

    I think the cut-off age is 38 for military service eligability.....Gonna sign up and help out? Really, some of those guys are on there 4th tours of duty. I'm sure you could single-handedly :wank:{and you know ALL about that...don't you?} Knock them Al-queda flat. Once again your attempts at Hipster jargon falls completely flat on it's face......BOOOOoooooo!
    Really your non-stop hatred of the USA is very trying for those of us who have served our country. But for a guy like you, that is just an abstract concept......something for the gutter trash out of Detroit and south Chicago to deal with. You as always, are way too hip for that shit...MAN!
    But here's hoping the best for ole B.O. {there's that stinky fart smell again:yuck:}. Maybe Your idiotic vitriole will cease when Mr. Obama actually does "Accomplish the Mission" that your beloved BUSH admin started but did NOT finish......
    I actually hope we get ole' OSAMA ALIVE. I think a great place to imprison him would be up your smug ASS, along with an oversized B.O. presidential model Dildo. But until then.......
    Could you please SHUT THE FUCK UP?
    That would be great......Mm-K?:fu:
    Ya treasonous Fuck.

    Didn't surprise me at all. And I totally agree with this decision. I'm not a total pacifist, although I do think some wars are unnecessary. And yes, I opposed the war in Iraq although at first I was of two minds about it. However, I always supported the war in Afghanistan.

    Actually I do recall the campaign promise... amazing he chose this one to hold to, and cast a bunch aside out of the gate.

    However, like the OP... it's the peaceniks that thought this kid could do no wrong... and he's continue a military presence in the Middle East with our young men and women.

    I just want to see an opinion or two from an Obamabot, that says... I voted for him, and I hate that he's continuing this...

    I think it is the war in Iraq that people have a problem with.

    Ah. So it's just a base desire for some schadenfreude.
