Apparently Obama is also Commander-in-Chief of an incredible shrinking army! Last week, White House staff leaked that Obama planned to send 34,000 additional troops to Afghanistan. Predictably, the reaction from the Left Wing of the Democrat Party was outrage, accompanied by threats to “get even”.
Most of us would say their reaction was not just predictable, it was laughable. “Get even?” How?
Obama, however, must have been terrified. The last “leak” put the number of troops down to 9,000. Now, it seems the political right is weighing in and the “leaked” number has been in flux all day.
Of course, in this whole thing, the concerns of the vast majority of loyal Americans is completely disregarded. We must assume that Obama truly believes that he has nothing to fear from Middle America.
This is an Administration completely at the mercy of special interests, which is exactly the opposite of what he promised during last year’s campaign. All you have to do is glance at the White House visitors list to understand that. The most frequent visitor since he took office is the president of the SEIU!
The decision on Afghanistan has nothing to do with the aspirations of the Afghan people, and it has nothing to do with the needs of the U.S. Military. It doesn’t even take into account that undermanned and outgunned American soldiers are dying needlessly. It has everything to do with domestic politics, and the steps necessary for Obama to advance his socialist agenda.
Cry the Beloved Country!
