Obama "Plans" to send 34,000 more troops to Afghanistan. The Key word here is "Plans"

Barack Obama met Monday evening with his national security team to finalize a plan to dispatch some 34,000 additional U.S. troops over the next year to what he's called "a war of necessity" in Afghanistan, U.S. officials told McClatchy. Obama is expected to announce his long-awaited decision on Dec. 1st. Why December 1st, when he has already made up his mind? Don't ask me, I'm only a taxpaying republican.
Lets give BO some credit here. It may have taken him 3 months, but at least he made a decision about the troops. Meanwhile he is doing what all good Community Organizers do: He's sampling the wind. This ''trial balloon'' will help him do that. The request was for, at the very least, 40,000 troops immediately - that was months ago; now we have 34,000 over the next year - does that mean 1,000 here, 1,000 there? This is just more dithering.
The resident of our White House and his criminal administration need to be removed for crimes against our nation and that would include Biden, Pelosi and company.
Nine months to make this decision while more soldiers die. But the stimulus' had to be passed in a heartbeat lest we all face disaster. Priorities?


  1. Isn't it like President Obama only ever realized that Afghanistan even existed, and that we have troops there, recently when one of his generals made a statement about the place?

    Mr. Obama is spending too much time trying to make new messes (his health care proposal that will make things worse and create many problems) instead of solving existing messes (the jobs picture) and paying serious attention to such matters as the War on Terror.

  2. I'm afraid he plans to do so right after he solves the job crisis. I am sickened by the constant spin and parsing of language.

    I was critical of Bush, but I really miss the clarity of his policies.

  3. I thought it was particularly funny that Obama is going to announce his increasing the number of troops right before he picks up his peace prize.

    Personally, I think the one good thing about Obama is that it is bringing all the crazies into the lime light. We know who they are now.

    I love your blog and have added you to my blog roll.

  4. Why is it that People such as Dmark call Obama MR.Obama... But call President Bush BUSH?
