18 Months

December 2, 2009

Oh. Was that a national secret? Well it should be. After saying in a campaign speech that Afghanistan was a war that we must win Chairman Zero spent nine and a half months making his super secret special plan for Afghanistan and then he let the cat out of the bag on his exit strategy. I knew he was going to do something like that. Does this guy not understand secret plans? How did he get elected?

Then he sends only forty percent of the troops requested.  This is a recipe for disaster. The enemy now knows when we are leaving. This is a two-fold problem. First, as I stated yesterday, they now know exactly how long they have to lay low until we are gone then it’s back to business as usual. Second, as Limbaugh so eloquently explained today, it will undermine our efforts now because the enemy will tell the Afghan people that anyone who cooperates with us will be killed as soon as we leave so no one will take our training seriously.

This is a success on the same scale as closing Guantanamo. I really wish I could remember how these people think because this is just perplexing as heck. The cadets that stayed awake sure seemed to like him. I’m just kidding you, they looked horrified by his words. I understand the commandant had to tell them to behave before the big show so they didn’t give him the raspberry or something. Now that’s comedy.

I find myself more and more disgusted with him every day. I have taken to screaming obscenities at the television and radio. Let me put a challenge of sorts out there, the first guy to mount an impeachment against him gets a yard sign in my yard for his election. Harry Reid could get it if he’d just start the proceedings. He would have my undying gratitude. Now that’s scary.

The Address

December 1, 2009

I’m as giddy as a schoolgirl. Tonight Chairman Zero will give an address outlining his brilliant plan for Afghanistan. I’m certain it will be filled with strategies designed to confound our enemy and wrestle victory from them. The backdrop for this masterpiece should be stunning with all those cadets adorning his presence, he should look like a giant among them.

It’s just a shame that we have so many channels on TV now, otherwise we could have him on every one. Wouldn’t that be fantastic? An entire night with the Leader. I wonder if he’ll wear an armband like Adolf used to? They were saying that he wouldn’t be wearing any military type things but an armband with the Obama logo would be just awesome don’t you think?

I wanted to wait until he spoke to write this post but I just couldn’t wait. Besides, Limbaugh, Beck and the rest will chew it up tomorrow so I thought I’d speculate. I’m sure he’ll have the standard LBJ withdrawal date to give our enemies hope. That’s just telling them that they only have to hold out that long and then we’ll be gone and they can go back to business as usual.

We already know he won’t be sending the required troops to complete the action but how many do you think are going. Already this has Viet Nam written all over it, but do you think he can make it worse? Who’s idea was it to put a cowardly communist in charge anyway?

Afghanistan

November 24, 2009

Can you tell me why we’re in Afghanistan? Are we really looking for Bin Ladin? The same old tired answers. The Taliban, Bin Ladin, what? Certainly it’s not that we’re opposed to sharia law as we’re allowing it to infiltrate our culture. Why do we even have such an army? Someone on the radio the other day said it was mandated by the Constitution to protect us. I can’t find that crap anywhere in our Constitution.

The real answer to our middle east problems is to get the heck out. These people have been at war for thousands of years and maybe that’s why the world thinks we’re arrogant. Because we think we’re going to go in there and end all this.

The first thing I always hear when I suggest this is, “What about Isreal?”. My friends let me tell you about Isreal. It’s not Isreal that needs protecting from us, they can take care of themselves. If anything we restrict them from having their way in the middle east. Isreal is a military powerhouse not to be triffled with that would make quick work of any invading force if not for our meddling. I said ANY invading force.

Why then are we in the middle east? This question has always puzzled me since I was very young and first found out what was going on there. As long as I can remember we have had a military presence there. The obvious answer is oil but that don’t seem to be adding up. We go in there and tear up and spend billions of dollars and all we get is higher gas prices. No, oil doesn’t make sence either.

How about control, are we trying to control some thing or some one? I don’t really see that happening. Everytime we go in there we seem to lose control. No, I think that if you’ll think about it you’ll find that the only thing happening here is a redistribution of wealth.

WHAT? Well think about it.

We have made the Saudi’s very wealthy. Every street urchin there has pockets full of American dollars. Oil money. As well as Viet Nam, Korea, Japan. Need I continue? WTF? Don’t listen to Hanoi Jane and her ilk on this. Those people are so much better off than they were that it makes me sick. Go there. See for yourself. Ask them. They will tell you.

The media goes in and finds all the hard luck stories to tear at your heart but the real story is that we brought these countries out of the middle ages and into the present. Has anyone been paying attention? The best thing that can happen to these third world holes is for us to drag our big, dumb, military butts in there and stimulate the heck out of their economy.

REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH! It has been going on right under your nose for your entire life and you didn’t even realize it.

 

Obama’s War

September 22, 2009

In 1965 when Johnson funnelled troops into Viet Nam he thought he was right, but he actually made one serious error after another from that point on. Chairman Zero’s plans to do the same in Afghanistan are very similar. On top of that he’s flopping all over the place. He’s talking out the other side of his head about less troops and more counter terrorism operations. Personally, I wouldn’t say anything until I had a clear plan, but I guess that’s why I’m not the Chairman of the party.

I still don’t understand his fixation with this region. He keeps spouting about the taliban and what not, while having ramadan celebrations at the White House. He describes this war as the nation’s foremost military priority which to him is I quess like our neighbors kids oboe recital is to us. The U.S. commander in Afghanistan says there is an urgent need to revise our strategy. An “urgent need”. But of course Chairman Zero has more pressing issues to address.

This whimpy attitude toward wartime decisions is characteristic of the libs as demonstrated by Kennedy at the Bay of Pigs, Johnson in Viet Nam, Carter in Iran and Clinton in Somalia. What makes it worse is the tendancy to run hot and cold on the issue of the war itself. First they are gung ho to roll in and do the deed. Then they lose their taste for it and pull funding until they can’t stand to see anymore American lives lost so they roll back to the gung ho stage for a short period before they second (or third, or fourth, or fifth) guess themselves.

Personally, I think we should just pull everyone out of everywhere, close our borders for twenty years and become self sufficient. The gubmint just makes me sick. To check out the story from the Las Vegas Sun on this click below.
