"Have you done it? Have you turned the tide?" Diane Sawyer asked the General.But, the Punks and Hypocrites on the Right are in a trick bag if Obama's Strategy works in Afghanistan after 7 months when Super America Defenders Bush and Cheney allowed the situation to languish for 8 years. They'll have to figure out a way to undercut the President and downplay the news while not attacking McChrystal.
"I believe we're doing that now. I believe that we have changed the way we operate in Afghanistan. We changed some of our structures and I believe that we are on the way to convincing the Afghan people that we are here to protect them. We've been at this for about seven months now and I believe we've made progress," he told Sawyer.
So, the bigoted vegetative Obama Haters will get their dander up and bellow, Obama doesn't say War on Terror enough! and Why did Obama wait so long? or We're succeeding despite the Chicago Machine and ACORN! and Sarah Palin would have gone over and subdued the Al Qaeda guys because jesus choose her!
Because the Punk Ass Bitches, Bullies and Chicken Hawks on the Right have to lie, lie, lie to convince the American People Obama loves Terrorists in order to realize their goal which is Republican Control of Government. That's all they care about, they don't care about protecting America, or the rights of americans or religious freedoms or pollution, all the REMFpublican Party wants is to regain control because then they can undercut programs to aid the poor, remove taxes from the Corporate Masters and murder Americans.
That's the 3 Things Republicans love to do: Funnel Taxes to the Rich, Screw the Poor, Murder Americans.
However, I don't necessarily agree with General McChrystal. 4GW warfare is an ebb and flow and has the nasty habit of flaring up time and again after an area is "pacified". And I would rather leave Afghanistan to the locals than sacrifice one more American for the Dollars flowing to the Makers of Death and Destruction.
