About that surge in Afghanistan

Remember how during the campaign we were told that Obama would never commit our troops without having a clear end game? Well we already know he’s sending in more of our nation’s finest in Operation Please Don’t Call it a Surge. I don’t recall him saying a word about what the end game is or what the target date for victory is or anything different than George Bush did.

And in addition, we were told that this “cowboy mentality” of “going it alone” was going to end, as the world loved Obama and he would work closely with our allies to coordinate any missions. He got off to a great start with our allies by throwing Poland etc. under the bus in trying to suck up to Putin and his new BCF (best comrade forever) Medvedev.

Now we see the result of his efforts: NATO tells Obama to shove it.

Barack Obama fails to win Nato troops he wants for Afghanistan

Barack Obama made an impassioned plea to America’s allies to send more troops to Afghanistan, warning that failure to do so would leave Europe vulnerable to more terrorist atrocities.

But though he continued to dazzle Europeans on his debut international tour, the Continent’s leaders turned their backs on the US President.

Nice going President Obama. Now what?
