    Re: Afghan War Debate Endangers U.S. Troops - Veterans

    APDST, I just wanted to say the soldiers of the 1st CAV are some of my most favorite heroes. While the 82nd & 101st are probably the most notorious to many people inside & out of the military, there is no finer division than the 1st
    CAV. I would add the Big Red1 is a close/close 2nd.

    I served in all them units, accept the 82nd. My combat patch is 1st Cav, obviously that's my fav, besides, it's a family tradition to live the legend; my pop and I are authorized the same combat colors. He was in 1/7 and I was in 1/8. One of my gg-grandfathers served in the 10th Cavalry; a real live Buffalo Soldier.

    cheney is to make a blockbuster speech tonite

    everytime the VEEP talks obama's butt gets badly beat

    when's the last time you heard the administration or anyone in the media mention the special prosecution of the cia?

    darth cheney is to reveal this evening that, at the admin's private preference, last october and november, the bush admin conducted a top-to-bottom review of the situation in afghanistan that was comprehensive in its outlook

    also at obama's quiet request, cheney will say that he and his former team kept the communication and its contents confidential

    obama relied almost entirely on the bush/cheney report to flesh out his now famous "new, comprehensive strategy for afghanistan," announced march 27

    march 27 is a very memorable date for close obama observers

    The White House - Blog Post - A New Strategy for Afghanistan and Pakistan

    the 3-27 strategy announcement, echoing largely advice received from the previous white house, mirrors mcchrystal's secret assessment, delivered to obama august 1 and leaked to the electorate sept 21 by the post's bob woodward, the day after obama blitzed five sunday talks and dissembled that he had not yet been briefed, that he had not yet been asked for reinforcements

    Gen. McChrystal Calls for More Troops in Afghanistan in Secret Assessment Sent to Obama - ABC News

    the cheney cabal is reportedly furious that rahm the ram would go on cnn last sunday and suggest that the current white house had to "start from scratch" when it comes to activities in the mountains over the moon

    had obama read cheney's summary more closely, heck, had the CHIN even subscribed to the ny times (or the post), he wouldn't be so sucker punched with shock that karzai's suddenly no shirley temple

    indeed, in august obama called afghanistan a "war of necessity," not "a war of choice"

    Obama calls Afghan war 'fundamental' to U.S. defense

    this was on the eve of karzai's corrupt reelection, and richard holbrook was there all along watching for the white house

    "the drumbeat of defeatism" cheney will decry

    meanwhile, obama struggles to establish a timeline for deciding whether or not to give mcchrystal what he recommends, to give his hand picked commander the numbers the in-the-field expert calls out as bottom line necessary to avoid defeat

    indecisive even over his indecisiveness appears our over-his-head commander in chief

    it just gets worse and worse for this woebegone white house

    obama can't do a darned thing right

    I'd settle for you making a coherent point.

    I would imagine that person who ignores all realities of the recent past and it's impact on the present would believe the situation NOW as it stands in Afghanistan had nothing to do with the Bush Administrations stand off Afghanistan policy. The consequences of those easily ignored stand off policies are what President Obama is cleaning up today.

    How convient it is to forget that the Generals on the ground and most military advisors were suggesting to Rumsfeld and Bush that up too 300,000 troops would be needed to do the job correctly in their war in Iraq.

    But nope they decided to ignore those recommendations and invade with a much smaller force, who were promised that it would be a cakewalk and soon they would be rained upon with flowers by the liberated Iraqies.

    I dunno. You gave the last guy eight years, and never got a firm decision on strategy. Why do you apply a different standard to the new president? Is that partisanship? Is it racism? Or is it just plain old-fashioned stupidity? It really doesn't matter which way you slice it, Sport, it's still hypocrisy.

    Rev this is exactly what is wrong with libterds. They can't come up with any factual basis for there ludicrous ideals, so they steer away from the truth by insulting those who know the truth or at least make an attempt to understand it. Racism would not exist if liberal clowns didn't keep it around for their own benefit. Jesse & Al wouldn't have a scam to run on colored people if racism didn't exist. They might have to get a real job shining shoes.
