War in Afghanistan Extended/Drone Strikes Are Terrorism

Two bombshell stories I heard at work watching the news this morning that make me think even half-assedly defending Obama was proof I am still wasn't cynical enough.

I am now.

Obama to Keep Troops in Afghanistan Beyond 2016 | Al Jazeera America

You were right stoneric. There is nothing worth liking or defending him for and probably never was.

^ I'm pretty sure you're living on a military base in Tokyo,
with your Wife, thanks of someone's feminist bullshit...
and from what I hear you are enjoying your time there.

Thank a feminist.



As for Obama, Terry.

This is definitely some bad shit..... reprehensible bull shit....
but anyone who thought he was going to be flawless was only lying to themselves,
as I'm sure you (and most of us) are aware.

There is loads of other stuff that I DO like that he's done
and that I and others have benefitted greatly by.

I'm by no mean defending the news you shared,
but am for lots of other stuff I believe he did that was right/best.

What we need is revolution, not new politicians. Fortunately, thanks to the advances made by the LGBT community, that revolution will have great song and dance numbers.

Terry was only commenting on the "bad shit". And you can only kill for so long(and brag about it) before the "other stuff" seems small in comparison.

I voted for obomba in 2008, and i didn't really feel "suckered" for doing it. He didn't hide the fact he was pro-war, just anti-iraq war. I felt the alternative at the time, McCain, was much, much worse. and i still feel that way today, minus one much.

Obomba has since decided to take the path of least resistance when it comes to war. Lacking any real experience in foreign policy, it seems to me, he's easily persuaded to take an approach that basically "splits the difference" . We saw that with the failed surge in Afghanistan, the disaster in Lybia, and the drone war, and most recently, the baffling admission that arming and training the so-called "moderate" terrorists was a bad idea, but it wasn't his. He just agreed to wasting billions of dollars and arming terrorists as a way to prove just how bad of an idea it actually was

His pro war campaign speeches centered around Afghanistan but he used his being against the Iraq war from the beginning as the center piece of his campaign. So he was trying to portray himself as the peace president who had to take care of Afghanistan first. Mccain would have had us in WWW3 in his first year in office.

First it was listing anyone old enough to hold a gun as combatants, now its listing anyone killed in these drone strikes that can't be identified as combatants, to keep the "collateral damage" numbers deflated, that has me rolling my eyes whenever the President comments on the use of lethal force on unarmed civilians here in the States. the hypocrisy is simply astounding
