cheney on afghanistan and obama

cheney on afghanistan and obama

tonite barack obama will use our soldiers from west point for image building (instead of his horrible greek columns from the campaign) to present his carefully stage-crafted event of telling the nation he will be sending 30,000 more troops to afghanistan. but preempting the speech is dick cheney who, yet again, steps up fearlessly and says in part:

“I begin to get nervous when I see the commander in chief making decisions apparently for what I would describe as small ‘p’ political reasons, where he’s trying to balance off different competing groups in society.”

Every time he delays, defers, debates, changes his position, it begins to raise questions: Is the commander in chief really behind what they’ve been asked to do?… Here’s a guy without much experience, who campaigned against much of what we put in place … and who now travels around the world apologizing. I think our adversaries — especially when that’s preceded by a deep bow … — see that as a sign of weakness.”

obama’s dangerous dithering over afghanistan has real consequences to troops in the field. i guess a strong leader like dick cheney can’t understand, or refuses to accept the fact that barack obama is not only incompetent to lead our military, but he is fundamentally a very weak, hollowed man.

    I just saw that Obama has said that they will begin withdrawing by July 2011. Timetable achieved!!! Al Qaeda/Taliban must be ecstatic to know they only have to hold on until then.

    Well done, O!!!

  • PenniePan says:

    Yes Ken well done President Obama! Though I hate the idea of more troops going to Afghanistan, I am all for the withdrawal of them beginning 7/11. Tonight is the beginning of the end of Shrubs’ 8 year bloodbath.

  • Maie says:

    The President is doing what is necessary in Afghanistan. The additional troops will focus on finally defeating al Qaeda and reversing the momentum the Taliban acheived when the Bush administration moved resources to the unnecessary Iraq war in 2003.

  • BikerDan says:

    Just like in Vietnam, peace without conquest. Thanks Obama!

  • Jane says:

    As disappointed as I am that Barack is sending in more troops and escalating the violence by prolonging this war, this is all probably more about the nukes in Pakistan then Afghanistan.

    I love the way our resident liberals are all giving Obama an out. I remember when we wanted more troos in Afghanistan we were called “bloodthirsty warmongers”, yet now that Obama is doing it, its because of nukes in Pakistan or the ever popular “It’s Bush’s fault!”.

    Absolutely pathetic. The left is determined to turn this into another Vietnam. They tried and tried with Iraq, but it didn’t work so now they must do it with Afghanistan. I’m sorry to tell you trolls, but the failure of Afghanistan will happen on Obama’s watch and he will take the fall for it.

    I’ve never seen such a bunch of clueless, kool aid drinking zombies in my life.

    “Tonight is the beginning of the end of Shrubs’ 8 year bloodbath.”

    And the beginning of Al Qaeda/Taliban’s victory, don’t forget that Pennie!!

  • Scarlett says:

    We should all be crying here people! Wake the hell up! With Obama’s stupid ass, Republican-coddled decision, we will have 11 years of bloody, costly, mindless war in Afghanistan. More dead: civilians, soldiers. More mentally ill soldiers coming home. More billions and billions spent for nothing.

  • Jared says:

    Hm. Seems to me like President Obama is channeling President Johnson.

  • cassiopeia says:

    Well I hate this. These troops won’t help there. We’re still going to lose the war because everyone loses/lost in Afghanistan. This will just take longer, cost more money, and kill more people. Glad I voted for “change”. 🙁

    On Cheney: What does the media give this evil bastard the time of day? As if what he has to say matters? He and his chimp did enough damage to this country for a lifetime then anyone else in our 200+ history. Thinking people will ignore him and concentrate on solving the country’s real issues that he and his pet monkey created in the first place.

  • Paul says:

    Though Obama hasn’t ever served in the military personally, Dick Cheney has been completely dubious from the beginning and shouldn’t be giving Obama advice on war. He has way too many hidden agendas about war in general and here again in the Politico piece cited, he is more then willing to commit others’ lives for a lawless land that has been a war-torn stagnation for 8 years, yet he never committed his own life. Why is that?

    “Al Qaeda/Taliban must be ecstatic to know they only have to hold on until then. ”

    They must be ecstatic to know that we’ll be arriving in May also.

    “The President is doing what is necessary in Afghanistan. The additional troops will focus on finally defeating al Qaeda and reversing the momentum the Taliban acheived when the Bush administration moved resources to the unnecessary Iraq war in 2003.”

    Wrong, as usual.
    Al Queda is scattered acrosss the middle east and parts of the globe. The whole intention is to create enough of a lull so the Afghan forces can learn to secure their own country.
    The Taliban is mostly down in Pakistan right now and as a result of this last idiotic announcement will more than likely remain there until we stick our tails between our legs and bail.
    Iraq was more necessary than any of your one dimensional liberal thought process can ever understand. Anytime you want a clue as to the many reasons and advantages our winning in Iraq contributes to ours and others safety let me know.

    “He has way too many hidden agendas about war in general and here again in the Politico piece cited, he is more then willing to commit others’ lives for a lawless land that has been a war-torn stagnation for 8 years, yet he never committed his own life. Why is that?”

    Boring, lame, predictable and totally hypocritical since you just got done basically saying the same thing about Obama who has no military experience and is willing to commit lives other than his own, has been more dubious, undecided flakey and aloof than any president in history. Especially on this issue.
    At least Cheney does have the experience in private sector executive positions and politics that began when Obama was in diapers, literally.

    Amy, very informative, thank you.

    though i can’t stand the s.o.b., cheney the criminal must have nuts the size of bowling balls.

  • micky says:

    Scarlett;

    “We should all be crying here people! Wake the hell up! With Obama’s stupid ass ”

    Ah yes, the change I was hoping for begins

  • Bog says:

    Why is this ddick allowed to pop off like this instead of sitting in a jail cell rotting to death?

  • micky says:

    Because hes smarter than you ?

  • A_Reluctant_Pundit says:

    Well the President’s attitude tonight was really disappointing. Democrats across the country will stay home in droves in 2010.

  • Ken says:

    “Democrats across the country will stay home in droves in 2010.”

    We can only hope that’s true!
