The current situation in Afghanistan exemplifies what you get, when you put a sissy in charge of the military. Obama likens himself as Rodin’s The Thinker,” appearing contemplative and deliberate. The problem is that Obama is little more than a thinker and a lot less of a doer.
So while our military men and women die in Afghanistan, Obama “thinks.” Despite the fact that General McChrystal has given Obama his professional opinion and requested 40,000 troops, Obama must “think.” We’ve all seen him think, that practiced pose, head askew showcasing his smooth jaw line, while casting his contemplative gaze hither and yon. Boy does he look smart, when he does that. Downright presidential!
By now we are all aware of Obama’s vast military experience, experience that would easily lead us to believe that he could cast doubt on General McChrystal’s military acumen. Nevertheless, I will remind you of a few things you may have missed.
Shameless plug: Consider my book The Big Black Lie, an Amazon Best-Seller, and a funny and satirical read on how Liberals try to destroy the lives of ordinary Americans…who happen to be black! Read on!
Obama’s vast military insight comes from the war movie Blackhawk Down, ironic in the fact that Blackhawk Down is a tribute film to the real first black president, Bill Clinton.
Now most of us consider Blackhawk Down an utter embarrassment to America—not the US military. Had the Marines been allowed to do their jobs in Mogadishu, Blackhawk Down would likely have been titled: The Hole Where Somalia Used to Be. However for Obama, the lessons of Blackhawk Down were very different from what patriotic Americans might think.
Obama learned from Blackhawk Down that a president can embarrass the US military with impunity, so much so that Hollywood would actually create what they believe is a “feel good” depiction of failure! He further learned that through bureaucratic wrangling, a president can take what is undoubtedly the best military in the world, and reduce it to little more than the prison sissy.
Blackhawk Down proved that a complicit Commander in Chief can lead the greatest military in the world to a bully beatdown by an African warlord, and 3rd-world, 2nd-rate dictator!
Finally Blackhawk Down proved that you can use the military as part of a “look over here” strategy, while in this case, POTUS chased a chubby intern around the Oval Office, or whatever you want to take the nation’s eye off of.
How’s this for military strategy? Piss off all of our allies. Put limits on our intelligence gathering. Tell the enemy that when we capture them, we will put them up at the Waldorf Astoria. Demoralize the military, by reducing their budget. And how about we create a civilian group that is “equivalent to the military”…only better! Is it any wonder how an African Somali warlord could make us tuck tail and run with a Democrat POTUS? Sounds suspiciously like what an African Kenyan is attempting to do to America right now!
Contrast Obama’s experience with McChrystal, and you begin to see the picture. McChrystal has been a student of the military since 1973, when he entered West Point. Then in 1978 McChrystal joined one of America’s elite special forces group, enrolling in the Special Forces Officers Course, and graduating one year later.
Believe it or not however, with McChrystal’s amazing background in the military, he has the same amount of actual battlefield experience as Obama, both having served in four wars.
McChrystal has served in Operations Desert Shield, Desert Storm, Enduring Freedom, and Iraqi Freedom. Obama shares Afghanistan and Operation Iraqi Freedom with McChrystal. However in addition, Obama has the War on Achievement—the internal war being waged against conservative Americans—and there is that bothersome Fox News, which created Obama’s media War on Fox News.
We all now know from the state-run media that one socialist, Harvard elitist “needlehead” trumps 47 million American patriots, one news network, and one well-trained General. Socialist please!
After Googling “war strategy,” Obama said the following in his recent address to troops:
“I won’t risk your lives unless it is absolutely necessary,” Obama told service men and women at Naval Air Station Jacksonville. He promised a “clear mission” with defined goals and the equipment needed to get the job done.
What America’s infantile Commander in Grief obviously doesn’t understand is that he has an obligation to protect the men and women already fighting! Their lives are at risk now! Further, their fellow servicemen for the most part are ready to serve; trained to serve. Obama’s statement shows his naiveté of anything outside of community organizing and the sodomizing of America.
The wars are an area where Obama can’t blame bush. When Bush left office, the wars were well in hand. Under Obama however, we are getting our butts kicked, but good! Obama himself said that Afghanistan was the war we needed to support. He has supported this one, like he has supported job creation in America…right into the ground.
“Fourteen Americans gave their lives. And our prayers are with these service members, their civilian colleagues and the families who loved them,” Obama said. “They were willing to risk their lives, in this case to prevent Afghanistan from again becoming a safe haven for al-Qaida and its extremist allies.”
Reading that statement made to America’s fighting men and women, one would think that Obama would listen to a battle tested general, whom he put in charge of Afghanistan. Yet Obama does nothing.
Those who can, do. Those who can’t, “think.” Unlike Rodin’s “The Thinker,” eventually for Obama the time for posing needs to come to an end.
That’s my rant!
