Obama Afghanistan Plan?
Emptysuit stood before West Point’s Corps of Cadets and tried to deliver details about his plans for Afghanistan. Have you noticed Emptysuit has stopped talking about the war in Afghanistan’s plan and moved on to “creating jobs?” Why? It was an empty speech? Talk, Talk, Talk! Emptysuit focus was only on him, given the reference of himself around 57 times. He has been silent about Afghanistan because he supported the invasion as a senator. FLASH BACK: In 2001, he said, the US attacked Afghanistan to destroy Al Qaeda—though most of the September 11 hijackers were, in fact, from Saudi Arabia, the US’ major Arab ally in the Middle East. He argued that the US invasion was legitimate, , because Afghanistan was Al Qaeda’s base of operations and the Taliban regime harbored and protected the terrorist group. This explains why Emptysuit has avoided Afghanistan issues, Obama Kool-Aid Drinkers and Dust Sniffers. Im adding Obama Ecstacy Pill Poppers to the list. Obama Ecstasy Pills Emptysuit even suggested that Al Qaeda enjoys the protection of sections of the Pakistani state, declaring, “There have been those in Pakistan who have argued that the struggle against extremism is not their fight, and that Pakistan is better off doing little, or seeking accommodation with those who use violence.” To get any answers from Emptysuit’s Empty speech you have to question Defense Secretary Robert Gates, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Pentagon Senior Officials. They will try to explain the Emptysuit’s gibberish.
Emptysuit announced 30,000 more troops for Afghanistan but didn’t announce a strategic vision. Emptysuit did give the enemy a timetable for withdrawing American troops while simultaneously committing additional combat forces to a war zone. Showing his experience as a leader. No commander in chief has ever done such a thing before, because it makes no sense from either a political or military perspective. July 2011 is the beginning of a process when Afghan forces will assume greater responsibility. Exit strategies are for political purposes and have no military usefulness. Taliban and Al Qaeda, you now know how long or hide out. Only if you can figure out Emptysuit’s plans.
Emptysuit announced 30,000 more troops for Afghanistan. Congress revealed that this figure could rise to 33,000. There are 68,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan now. The 30,000 additional troops should arrive within six months. I don’t think the Pentagon war planners knew this. Emptysuit hinted they would deploy in the first part of 2010. Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the U.S. military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff, said they may not all be in place until next fall. The first part of a 9,000-member Marine Corps brigade is due to arrive in Afghanistan the end of December, likely headed for the Taliban’s area of Kandahar. 20,000 to 25,000 additional troops would arrive by July. “They are not all going to be there in six months,” a senior military official said. The current thinking, the official said, is that the Pentagon will be able to push about 20,000 to 25,000 troops into the country by late summer, but that the final brigade will probably not arrive until early fall. NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said NATO allies promised to send around 7,000 more troops. The Netherlands and Canada plan to withdraw combat forces of 2,100 and 2,800 in 2010 and 2011, respectively. Hum?
Emptysuit stated, “After 18 months, our troops will begin to come home.” Emptysuit said troops would start to withdraw from Afghanistan in July 2011. Secretary of Defence Robert Gates and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told Congress this date could change depending on conditions on the ground. Gates has stated, “First of all, I have adamantly opposed deadlines; I opposed them in Iraq and I opposed deadlines in Afghanistan.” It is not clear how substantial or frequent subsequent troop drawdowns would be. Gates has acknowledged that there is no deadline in the troops withdrawal from Afghnistan. Gates said that the troop withdrawal scheduled to commence in July 2011 will probably be two to three years. He added there are no deadlines in terms when our troops will be out. The Pentagon also acknowledged that there will probably be slippage in the deployment of surge troops. Emptysuit’s war strategy is handing over security to Afghanistan’s army and police province by province, district by district, starting in July 2011. Gates and Mullen stressed to Congress that the transition will not happen all at once and, indeed, there is no deadline or broader timetable to hand over security to the Afghans. Hum?
Emptysuit spent four months of deliberation and weighing options concerning Afghanistan. The Talibans strength has increased by up to 20-30 percent over the past year, and they were better armed and organized doing complex activities. McChrystal asked Emptysuit in August for 40,000 more troops. The troop buildup is stirring unease among Democrats. The costs keep going up even as the definition of success is scaled back. Eight years and $240 billion into the war in Afghanistan, with more than 900 U.S. military deaths so far. Emptysuit hope that breaking the Taliban, America will create the conditions for the United States to transfer responsibility to the Afghans.
