The Afghan situation is spiraling out of control, thanks to the failure of leadership from Barack Obama. As of this morning, four American soldiers are dead and now the Afghan leadership is making outrageous demands.
What are those demands and why are we afraid?
The demand is that we turn over those responsible for the burning of the Koran for trial in Afghanistan. We are afraid because we are worried that Barack Obama might actually do something that stupid.
Can you imagine what would have happened if Hamid Karzai had made such a demand of Ronald Reagan? Reagan would have told him to stay put while he sent the B-52’s to solve the issue. George W. Bush would have told Karzai to pound sand. So would his father. Even Bill Clinton would not have agreed to anything like that.
The Afghans claim that NATO has agreed to a trial of the soldiers responsible.
While this is probably untrue, does anyone have any real confidence that Barack Obama wouldn’t do something like this?
The only saving grace for those soldiers is that this is an election year. Even Obama should realize that if he turned those soldiers over for trial, he would not even carry the Peoples’ Republic of DC.
But how many of us really trust that Obama would not turn over those soldiers for trial in Afghanistan?
Most of us don’t and it is not just a partisan issue.
The real issue is, Obama is not an American.
The liberals who read this blog will immediately start hyperventilating over that statement. “Birther!” they will scream.
Where Obama was born has nothing to do with it. Obama is no more an American than someone who just happened to be washed up on the shore to be born.
Obama spent a significant part of his youth raised in another country by people who did not like America. When he came back, his parents, closest family friends and everyone else he associated with hated America. Since college, Obama has floated through the liberal elite society.
He has no clue what it is like to be a middle class American.
For Obama, love of country means nothing. For Obama and his radical friends, freedom is something to be crushed. Liberty is anathema. Prosperity is only for the ruling class and is only to be obtained through the political process.
For Obama and his cronies, the state is the ultimate god. The people are simply commodities owned by the state and to be disposed of if it advances the cause of the state and the leftist party.
Obama embodies this philosophical sea change in Obamacare. Under Obamacare, no longer are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness paramount virtues. Only what you can do for the state and your worth is measured on that basis. If you are old, then you are a commodity to be disposed of, like an old car that has outlived its useful life.
Obama views Americans not as masters of the government but as chattel of the state.
That is why we fear Obama. He views those soldiers as disposable, if he needs them to be. Duty, honor and courage are just words in a dictionary to Obama.
That is why those soldiers should be afraid.
That is why we should all be afraid.
We should have brought our men and women home a long time ago- like 2005...
the parents and loved ones are sick with worry about their kids sent over there to simply be targets of opportunity for these uncivilized nut jobs.
Let's leave these fanatics alone to kill each other off, a job they enjoy doing anyway.
The Koran is toilet tissue
I sure wish you could draw pictures on this site 'cause I'd love to draw a cartoon of Mohammed right now.
I wish our generals would step in an arrest Obama for being a threat to national security....
I WANT OUR TROOPS OUT OF ALL "MUSLIM CONTROL" !
Several months ago I would have disagreed with you Ron, but now I agree 100%. There is no reason for our American troups to be in that hellhole any longer. Bring them home and put them on our borders. And we have to get rid of the muslim who thinks he is CIC. What a disgrace for our country.
The Taliban regularly burns mosques, as a means of extorting tribute. We and our NATO partners have assisted in rounding up the perpetrators.
A logical response would be that we might consider some small reprimand, as soon as Karzai cleans up his act with the Taliban!
Hamid Karzai is a Pashtun. The Taliban are mostly Pashtuns. Karzai can no more "clean up his act" with the Taliban than a leopard can change his spots. One possible solution to the Afghanistan issue may be to break the country up into several smaller countries based on tribal regions. The Pashtuns are mostly in Southern Afghanistan, and creating a Pashtun nation would result in a land-locked, isolated nation that could be as backwards and repressive as they want to be without bothering the rest of the world.
Just a thought.
Maybe we could kill enough of them until they surrender. It worked in WWII.
Divide it into several countries, Robert?
Kind of like the Brits divided India? (I had to search a while to find a link that wasn't an all out attack...).
But it has worked, after a fashion.
During the Soviet/ Afghan war, while Pakistan and India were fighting near K2, I asked a Pakistani General at a dinner party in Islamabad why they seemed unable to bury the hatchet. He replied:
"You are correct...we have much in common with the Indians. For example, we both hold our cattle in high esteem! I simply prefer mine medium rare."
Says it all, doesn't it?
Small reprimand against who?
when the russians were there they did not have any problem like this. our military knows how to handle it but their hands are tied by obama. one soldier gets handed over then obama should be impeached immediately.
Our military has had their hands tied since Korea.
