Obama To Send More Troops To Afghanistan

leave a comment »

When I was 11, a common “peace-love” liberal bumper sticker said: “Stop the war in Vietnam, and start one in China.” Obama’s bumper sticker policy on his war issues now involves sending more 7000 more troops to Afghanistan because the US shouldn’t be in Iraq. This is a total flip-flop on his policy in Jan ’07 of bringing the troops home and in Mar ’08.

“It is past time to end this war that should never have been waged by bringing our troops home, and finally pushing Iraq’s leaders to take responsibility for their future. “

Or is it? Will he bring troops home or will he send them elsewhere or keep them in Iraq? After this weekend of chummying up as a pseudopresident of the USA with Afghan President Hamid Karzai and promising aid, I’m betting that if Obama becomes president, the troops will not come home for years.

This stumbling admission from Obama in 2004 saying he wouldn’t necessarily bring troops home.
