How is this the truth? Anyone who didn't have their head up their ass during the presidential election knew Obama would be hawkish on Afghanistan.
That's not to say that the war isn't going horribly; as much as people love to criticize Biden, I think his strategy is more apt for fighting the war in Afghanistan than the COIN efforts currently being used. We're never going to build anything out of that ****pile, unless people can accept a decades-long commitment there.
I think it's also emblematic of our dysfunctional government that there's also effectively no way for Obama to leave.
See this isn't about Obama Jack, try to keep up with Harry it is about the hypocrisy of the people on the left, who labeled Bush a war criminal whose silence is deafening now.
"Some guys play in all-star games, some guys don't. I don't know who picks all those all-star teams. In all honesty, I don't know who picks the combine, for that matter," Belichick said. "How does (Miami-Ohio offensive lineman Brandon) Brooks not get invited to the combine? How did Vollmer not get invited to the combine? I don't know. We can't really worry about that. We just have to try to evaluate them the best we can."
This last month has been hell, it's true, and our current ROE is the cause in my opinion. We simply can not defeat an enemy that we aren't allowed to properly engage or detain. Not to mention 50 other reasons, but after this last month I've become extremely disheartened and disillusioned and would almost rather just pull out than stay here.
I have acutally seen a few people staying consistent on their anti-war stance, and I applaud them for their non-partisanship. In the next town over from where I live, there are some older protesters that used to be out every Saturday since the whole windup into Afghanistan, and subsequently Iraq, started. They had a few signs against Bush, but most were just anti-war slogans. During the 2008 election, I wondered whether or not I would see them after January 2009. Sure enough, those folks are still there.
Good for them for being consistent and transcending this uber-partisan environment. I don't begrudge anyone their opinions, even if I disagree, and it's refreshing to see some good old-fashioned convictions that aren't affected by a (D) or (R) after a name.
