    I don't think you can say "Suddenly" hawkish. This was one of the things he campaigned on. I'm personally not happy with his plans, but I'm not surprised it was to be expected.

    Aaaaaand here comes MyOwnDrum again with one of his trademark stupid polls. There is no "now", Obama campaigned on sending more troops to Afghanistan and made a speech in March affirming that he would do just that. The fact that he almost didn't decide on a surge, and that he took 3 months to make up his mind, speaks more about him than the choice he ultimately made.

    Really? Who are these "people behind the scenes"? This statement is dangerously close to conspiracy theory territory.

    I say other. Its easy as hell to spew anti-war nonsense to toss the salad of anti-war morons for votes but once he was in the presidential office reality hit him.
    "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"

    So how do you explain that he has been doing exactly what he said he would do when he was running for office?

    Obama is just another Washington crook. Same ****, almost same parties.

    Another election crook, that uses the media to get elected without any values aside from being best at being elected.
