Afghanistan IS Obama’s War see Bill Kristol Must Resign
Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele was absolutely right. Afghanistan is Obama’s war and, judging by other recent Democratic ventures in military affairs, isn’t likely to turn out well.
It has been idiotically claimed that Steele’s statement about Afghanistan being Obama’s war is “inaccurate” — as if Steele is unaware Bush invaded Afghanistan soon after 9/11. (No one can forget that — even liberals pretended to support that war for three whole weeks.)
Yes, Bush invaded Afghanistan soon after 9/11. Within the first few months we had toppled the Taliban, killed or captured hundreds of al-Qaida fighters and arranged for democratic elections, resulting in an American-friendly government.
Then Bush declared success and turned his attention to Iraq, leaving minimal troops behind in Afghanistan to prevent Osama bin Laden from regrouping, swat down al-Qaida fighters and gather intelligence.
Having some vague concept of America’s national interest — unlike liberals — the Bush administration could see that a country of illiterate peasants living in caves ruled by “warlords” was not a primo target for “nation-building.”
Even Obama is not certain whose war your children are fighting. Today, could be Bush’s; tomorrow, could be Obama’s. Next day, somebody else’s.
Since Obama fails to keep panty bombers off flights into America, I don’t see that Afghanistan is much of an issue.
Now, I know some of us have children invested in war in Afghanistan. I just don’t know if Obama knows WHY they are there.
Get my drift?
While dodging bullets, rockets, mines, and all sorts of Islamicist hell, Obama may decide that our sons and daughters should also place respect for Islam FOREMOST in their list of priorities. As he has done at NASA and other government cess-pools.
If Obama was my commander-in-chief, I would look for another job; just a thought, you know?
