Obama is Winning Afghanistan

So says General Stanley McChrystal.
"Have you done it? Have you turned the tide?" Diane Sawyer asked the General.

"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.
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.

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.

The Afghan people themselves seem to agree with this assessment.

Check out the survey cited over at Rational Nation USA that supports these statements.

Who deserves credit? Let the history experts decide 25 years from now.

There may be some people on the right who hate Obama this much, but I think you're overdoing it...

Most conservatives are active duty and vets (like me) or friends or parents of someone in the military. Anyone who wishes failure for our military just because they hate the president is a punk ass bitch (hmm... Who's been doing that this past decade???)

No, we want us to put the nail in this and get the hell out. I want victory, regardless of who is president.

Silverfiddle, Victory is a bogus idea in Afghanistan. How long can a Democratic government hold on in the area?

Is it still a victory if a revolution or a shift in legally elected power occurs 25 years hence installing an Iranian Islamic Dictatorship or a New Taliban or a Iraqi Ba'ath Party in power?

While perhaps Code Pink Left groups wished actual military defeat it pales when compared to multiple elected Republicans, Big Radio Talkers and every Neo-Con wishing for "temporary" military setbacks in order to regain control of the Government.

Oh, and I (and you) took an Oath to defend the US Constitution not the Iraqi or Afghani ones... And neither land is worth one American life.

I must disagree with you on one point. That is where you say that Republicans like to kill Americans.

Actually, Republicans like to kill everybody. Remember Iraq?

Oh, of course, I meant everybody who isn't rich.

Very nice blog you have here. I like reading political blogs for some reason. Anyway, I have a site myself where people from around the world come and debate on popular issues. I feel as if this will give citizens some form of power, letting their voices be heard.

I'd like to exchange links with you to help spread some traffic around between each other. If you'd like to, please leave a comment under our "Compadres" page when you've added our link and we'll return the favor.

Until then, keep up the good work.
