You cannot prove your claims. I cannot prove my claims. We know Bush. And we know Obama. My claims are more believable.
Oh, I see you have a fanclub, of one, Hi Dave.
My only claim is that the people I serve have complained of how difficult it is to fight with both arms tied behind their backs. I never heard that before the Bamster took over.
Your actually very pro-American but in a way that's particularly nasty if not imperialist.
You don't see that setting an example as being a tyrant has it's counter effects. You probably also don't realise that most of the US is an undesirable crime ridden sh#thole.
First of all the UK Govt will never LIE for you like that again. You used them for the UN vote, they will never risk such worldwide unpopularity again for nothing in return unless there totally stupid.
In your thinking Deception is really another word for being treacherous.
You may love the short term benefits but every thief has it's day.
Your analysis of long term goals I feel lacks. Toppling Hussein was the good thing the rest of the conflict was simply not worth it. The same with Bin Laden, you should have left after the Northern Alliance had smacked the hell out of the Taliban. But no, let's stay 10 years to see ourselves decline. You do not understand the Afghani mentality in the slightest.
As my link earlier, the Iraq insurgency are killing still goes on just as it did. And so will the Taliban with or without you.
You seem to think 'forever' is the answer despite Iraq and Vietnam. You also don't get the idea that these terrorists are mainly based in Pakistan. You're not fighting a country anymore, your fighting a dispersed idea, a safe haven is in Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia and elsewhere. Unless your going to throw down 4-5 front-lines which you can't afford in any case your proposition is futile.
You need to move with the action, not put down a forever marker. And FYI the Russians weren't pussies it was and has always been a futile war.
You have become the Redcoats marching out from Boston and your too stubborn to see it.
