We Aren't Fooled

Today's Washington Post explains that Obama is sending 13,000 more troops to Afghanistan:

But in an unannounced move, the White House has also authorized -- and the Pentagon is deploying -- at least 13,000 troops beyond that number, according to defense officials.

The additional troops are primarily support forces, including engineers, medical personnel, intelligence experts and military police.

These "additional troops" are a red herring and a diversion. General McChrystal has asked for 40,000 combat troops.

13,000 does not equal 40,000.

Support troops do not equal combat troops.

We are not fooled.

President Obama, you either support the troops, or you support your left-wing base.

Pick a side, no voting present!

He doesn't know math. He's from the side of Chicago that forces their way thru, not working their way thru. That's why he has demanded all his school records be sealed. He is afraid the world will find out how stupid he really is.

I get the feeling he's doing this to quiet Feinstein.

However, reading that "The additional troops are primarily support forces, including engineers, medical personnel, intelligence experts and military police.", I'm more concerned than ever about our soldiers safety.

I am sure you are okay with this Stevie. Our enemies are probably okay with it. Wait...your okay with it...our enemies are okay with it....wow.

jim m:

That's correct Steve. Obama and the left (you know those a-holes who once said that dissent is the highest form of patriotism?) believe that conservative critics and dissenters are the real enemy.

Thanks for the admission.

It took less time for Obama... (Below threshold)
jim m:

It took less time for Obama to approve taking pictures of dead soldiers coming home in caskets than it is taking him to decide if he wants to win the war.

We understand exactly what his priorities are.

I dont know why the PR stunts continue from this failure in chief? He is a one termer if that. There is no point in continuing to pretend He supports anything good for America.

But, go ahead and try anyways Stevie Greenie.

GarandFan:

Let's see, in order to have an effect with non-combat troops, the area has to be safe to work in. So let's send in non-combat troops to pacify the area, so that it's safe to work in.

Yeah, that makes a lot of sense.

IF THIS IS BARRY'S BEST, THEN PULL THE FUCK OUT NOW AND QUIT WASTING THE LIVES OF OUR TROOPS!!!!

Mary:

Obama seems to be too concerned with controlling everyone who doesn't agree with him. Well, I agreed with him in 2008, but I didn't know there was no substance behind the words. Obama, concerned with the military? He is tooooo busy with his OWN agenda items. I'll voice my disapproval in 2010 and 2012!

ib42:

All the above posters have absolutely no comprehension of the weight on Mr. Obama's shoulders as President of this country, especially now. "Pull out!" "Send more troops"! "He's a failure"! You yell out these insane, stupid and uncouth comments as if you could fix everything if you were at the top. Well, I don't think there is one among you capable of punching your way out of a paper bag. So, How can you understand how difficult the job of Mr. Obama is?
AND HE DIDN'T START OR CAUSE ANY OF THESE WARS, DAMAGE THE ECONOMY, SCREW HEALTHCARE or any of the problems he has taken on. He is a brave, intelligent human being. You all are lowlife repugnicans.

Well who can argue with such a well reasoned and communicated position?
Does the Harvard debate squad know about you, ib42?
