    Antiwar groups want Obama to forget pledge

    Anti-war pussyfist(pussy+pacifist, Yeah I know those words mean the same thing,so it is a little ) have absolutely no business trying to dictate how wars should be fought. If they do not like the fact our country engages in war every now and then, then they should pack their **** up and move to France,Canada or Switzerland.


    Washington Times - Antiwar groups want Obama to forget pledge
    The antiwar left blasted former President George W. Bush for "lying" about the war in Iraq "Bush lied, people died" but now some feel betrayed that President Obama is keeping his word about Afghanistan.

    Mr. Obama on Wednesday announced the deployment of 17,000 troops to Afghanistan in keeping with his position as a candidate that the United States needs to redouble its efforts there.

    Code Pink protesters make signs against former Bush aide Karl Rove in July 2008 as they wait for him to appear at a House subcommittee hearing. Many members of the antiwar group supported President Obama's campaign but are unhappy as he keeps a campaign pledge to increase troops in Afghanistan. (United Press International)

    Many antiwar activists, including some who supported Mr. Obama, were angered by the move, with some saying they had hoped his war stance was "just campaign talk."

    Code Pink protester Desiree Anita Ali-Fairooz makes her sentiments known at a Senate subcommittee hearing on the rights of detainees at Guantanamo Bay. (Allison Shelley/The Washington Times)

    "I'm very upset; he promised change, and this is not change. It's just going to create more deaths on both sides and create more terrorists," said Jodie Evans, co-founder of Code Pink. The group, known for protests and targeting Bush administration officials, posted a statement Thursday condemning Mr. Obama's decision and urging him to replace the combat troops with "humanitarian troops."

    "Afghanistan needs troops of doctors, farmers, teachers, not more troops," the statement says.

    During last year's election, Miss Evans was a strong supporter of Mr. Obama and was listed as a "bundler" on his campaign Web site, raising between $50,000 and $100,000 for the future president.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    You know, that comment shows just how bloody ignorant you are. Are you aware that Canadians have been stationed in Afghanistan since the start of that war, fighting for our American friends? Over 100 Canadian soldiers have lost their lives, yet you have no problem calling us pussyfists? How disgraceful.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Canadian troops in Afghanistan as 9/11 'retribution

    About 2,500 Canadian soldiers are among the 50,700 soldiers from around the world serving in Afghanistan.


    Deployments of the United States Military - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Afghanistan About 48,250 American troops (including National Guard) are in Afghanistan,

    Over 100 Canadian soldiers have lost their lives, yet you have no problem calling us pussyfists? How disgraceful.
    Considering their history sympathizing with deserter scum in the past, one has to wonder(yes I know Canada recently kicked out a few deserters).

    oh W.T.F

    War in Afghanistan is as legitimate as pecan pie.

    The legitimacy of pecan pie is for another thread.

    Props to President Obama for sending more troops to Afghanistan, should have been done a LONG time ago. The original number was supposed to be 30,000 was it not?

    I second this. Canada is not only stationed in the war, it is leading the entire Southern mission. While the U.S. ditched its original intentions to stop the Taliban and find Osama in favour of going for oil-rich Iraq, the rest of NATO has been hanging on for dear life.

    I'm tired of the finger pointing. Obama is doing the right thing in restoring the original intention of the "war on terror" after 9-11: disable the Taliban, find Bin Laden, and bring justice to the victims of 9-11.

    Amen, Orius.

    And Winston, glad to know that some Americans do appreciate the Canadian effort in Afghanistan. So back at ya.

    Re: Antiwar groups want Obama to forget pledge

    I thought this thread was going to be about Obama's recent decision to keep combat troops in Iraq past the 16 month deadline he promised to keep.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Damn, I wrote "find Obama" instead of "find Osama"...

    Although, I'm sure by now it's obvious that both are in the White House. :P
