Obama: More Troops to Afghanistan

Obama: More Troops to Afghanistan

To the (not so) wayback machine!

“This November, you get to decide the future of the Afghanistan war,” Obama told some 13,000 people at a rally on the campus of the University of Colorado Boulder.

“We are bringing our troops home from Afghanistan. And I’ve set a timetable. We will have them all out of there by 2014. Gov. Romney doesn’t have a timetable.

That was the “promise” made by the Perpetual Campaigner in Chief last September in order to sway the sheeple in his favor. However, as my beloved Jonn over at This ain’t Hell tells us, NBC is reporting that we are to maintain a presence of forces and a blank check in Afghanistan for an indefinite period of time, or as quoted, “many years”.

So, while our own military has its programs, benefits and pay cut, we’re going to be supporting theirs.

the United States would agree to sustain and equip Afghanistan’s large security force, which the government in Kabul currently cannot afford. The deal, according to the text, would take effect on Jan. 1, 2015 and “shall remain in force until the end of 2024 and beyond.” It could be terminated by either Washington or Kabul with two years advance written notice.

But it gets better!

As if the restrictive rules of engagement resulting in quadruple the loss of OUR troops under Herr Barry as President Bush weren’t bad enough, the hands of our loved ones in uniform will be tied even further.

“No detention or arrest shall be carried out by the United States forces. The United States forces shall not search any homes or other real estate properties,” it says.

Yes, you read that right. Our troops would not be able to capture terrorists. Isn’t that nice?

I’m pretty sure the word “quagmire” did not mean what President Bush’s detractors thought it meant. Barry’ll show ’em!

    all troops out in 08, what a liar. Such spiutd lies. We do forget, we forget you said out in 08 and you will get re-elected. It’s sad that he was’nt in the know b4 the election. None of us are in the know and it sucks, we’re all in the ass-umption of shit. We do KNOW LIES though, but that’s not enough. If blood is on our hands, then we have to KNOW.
