Dear Leader Votes Present Yet Again

The Obamessiah doesn’t like any of the options that his advisors have presented him with regard to Afghanistan. His biggest gripe about these options is that they each require him to make a decision. Making a decision is not something the Obamessiah is comfortable doing.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama won’t accept any of the Afghanistan war options before him without changes, a senior administration official said, as concerns soar over the ability of the Afghan government to secure its own country one day.

Obama’s stance comes as his own ambassador in Afghanistan, Karl Eikenberry, is voicing strong dissent about a U.S. troop increase, according to a second administration official.

Eikenberry’s misgivings center on a concern that bolstering the American presence in Afghanistan could make the country more reliant on the U.S., not less. He expressed them in forcefully worded cables to Washington just ahead of Obama’s latest war meeting Wednesday.

How about doing something for our troops that are in harms way over there? Oh that’s right, you’re on the other team, aren’t you?

Thank goodness Hitlery threw her $0.02 in for good measure.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Thursday that she is concerned about Afghanistan’s “corruption, lack of transparency, poor governance (and) absence of the rule of law.”

Funny how our government is only concerned about these things when applied to foreign countries. “Corruption, lack of transparency, poor governance and absence of the rule of law,” is exactly what we have in Washington DC. I hope Afghanistan doesn’t decide to pull its troops out of the US as a consequence.

  1. What these Bozos don’t get is that a functional government starts AFTER the war is won.

    First win the war. Then transition to a good civilian government. That’s how it goes.

    Pulling out of Afghanistan because their government doesn’t meet our standards would be like withdrawing from Italy after Anzio in 1944, leaving Italy to the Nazis because the Italians didn’t have a good Democracy up and running.
