OBAMA OUTSOURCES AFGHANISTAN

JUST IN CASE AFGHANIZATION DOESN’T WORK

Anti-War, Anti-Bush Candidate Follows Bush Iraq Strategies & Tactics In Expanding Afghan War

So. It’s come to this. This mellow Hawaii dude, this Harvard man, this community organizer, this brother from the South Side of Chicago, with the African-Muslim name and the fiery black Christian preacher, this guy who promised to “end the war within eighteen months,” this “socialist’ is turning out to be pretty much Bush. He’s not going to rule out or prosecute torture. He’s going to cover it up. He’s not going to close Gitmo and bring about fair & speedy trials in civilian courts inside the US. He’s pulled some troops out of Iraqi cities, but not out of Iraq. He’s going to redesignate them as “non-combat,” not redeploy them. So.

Obama has expanded the war in Afghanistan into Pakistan, against their will. We’re losing people there now, and in Afghanistan, where there’s a troop buildup and a major offensive going on. It’s not going well. How do we know that? For one thing, there’s a new “Phoenix Program” under the command of Dick Cheney’s personal global & domestic assassin, General McChrystal. Can Cointelpro be far behind? Plus, we’re starting to hear the kind of bullsh*t we used to hear from Defense Secretaries like Melvin Laird and Robert McNamara about “winning hearts & minds” and “Vietnamization,” i.e. turning the war over to the locals. That was a disaster in Vietnam. We got our asses kicked out of there when it failed.
