I do not fully understand the geopolitical issues in fighting the Taliban. But, in a “real” war, where we allowed to actually fight to win, we would be taking out the source of these IEDs. The way we are fighting this looks to me like pure lunacy. Can any of you explain it?
I think both Bushes were terrible commanders of our military. Hell, I think FDR should have listened to Patton at the end of WWII (recall, Patton wanted to fight Russia right then and there). The same goes for the way we played patty-cake in Vietnam… This business of trying to appease tyrants and fighting with one glove behind the back is insanity.
Yet, the day Obama took control of combat in the Middle East we saw a huge spike in combat deaths. I’ve said before I believe Obama did this because he is protecting those of his religion. (Recall, just the other day, what was revealed when he made the comment that AK-47s should rightly be in the hands of warriors, not civilians.) This is exactly the reason our Founding Fathers demanded that a president be “natural born.” They did not want our president to have a divided loyalty.
But, I don’t believe that’s the situation we have with Barry. Not at all! I don’t for a second believe his loyalty is divided.
