Obama Throws America and Her Troops Under an Afghani Bus

American Troops Losing Heart in Afghanistan

This is unconscionable. Our troops have lost hope because we have a stark raving mad, narcissistic fascist for a president. (Did I leave anything out?)

It is gut-wrenching to see our soldiers demoralized like this. And, trust me, it is maddeningly infuriating to be married to an active duty military member whose commander in chief is not only frighteningly incompetent, but sadistically and pathologically dangerous as well. This man has no love for this country. He feels no duty toward our troops.

The short list is this:

Obama is intentionally and methodically making our troops vulnerable to the enemy.

Obama is intentionally and methodically destroying our economy.

Obama is intentionally and methodically killing what’s left of the American work ethic.

Obama is intentionally and methodically creating a racially divisive America.

Obama is intentionally and methodically taking away the liberty of Americans.

Obama is intentionally and methodically destroying this great country.

And he still sleeps like a (spoiled) baby at night.

Make no mistake, it is a non-issue to Obama that the American people do not support his version of Commie-Fascism or his blatant disregard for the military. Obama does not care about poll numbers. Like Mussolini, he knows you don’t need popular opinion to pull off a bloodless revolution, just enough gullible accomplices to get the ball rolling. Oh, and some fascist thugs who are willing to intimidate and beat people up…to get the ball rolling.

So, while our troops lose heart because they have been abandoned by their commander in chief; while they serve and suffer under a president who is turning out to be a bigger enemy than Al Qaeda, Obama further destroys America from within with his vapid rhetoric, his clandestine congress, and his manipulative benevolence toward the Hand Out Crowd who line up for his “free” money (aka, My Money).

This is not what our service men signed up for.

This once great nation, America, the land of freedom and endless possibility, that is what our men in uniform volunteered to defend. It would be disheartening, indeed, to be this man…

…and realize that your own commander in chief was tearing down the very things you’ve sacrificed to defend.

Who Is More Qualified To Call the Shots In Afghanistan? You Decide.

**Update** Although this post is nearly six years old, the disparity between the honor and courage of our military and the entitled, tresonous petulance of their Commander in Chief remains the same.

So, here’s the rub from the UK Telegraph:

In London, Gen McChrystal, who heads the 68,000 US troops in Afghanistan as well as the 100,000 Nato forces, flatly rejected proposals to switch to a strategy more reliant on drone missile strikes and special forces operations against al-Qaeda.

He told the Institute of International and Strategic Studies that the formula, which is favoured by Vice-President Joe Biden, would lead to “Chaos-istan”.

When asked whether he would support it, he said: “The short answer is: No.”

He went on to say: “Waiting does not prolong a favorable outcome. This effort will not remain winnable indefinitely, and nor will public support.”

Apparently McChrystal pulling rank on Obama didn’t go over so well with the talking heads at the White House.

The remarks have been seen by some in the Obama administration as a barbed reference to the slow pace of debate within the White House.

Nice to see that “some in the Obama administration” are able to grasp the obvious.

Gen McChrystal delivered a report on Afghanistan requested by the president on Aug 31, but Mr Obama held only his second “principals meeting” on the issue last week.

He will hold at least one more this week, but a decision on how far to follow Gen McChrystal’s recommendation to send 40,000 more US troops will not be made for several weeks.

A military expert said: “They still have working relationship but all in all it’s not great for now.”

That might be because McChrystal, the man in charge of keeping the free world safe, has dutifully asked his commander in chief for permission to win and all he’s getting is a back seat to Obama’s PR schedule.

But it gets better:

Some commentators regarded the general’s London comments as verging on insubordination.

FYI, ‘commentator’ as defined in the Leftist Media Lexicon (LML) is: “Any random person who acts as an armchair expert on a subject he knows nothing about. Can be a tenured news anchor, Hollywood activist, or the poor disgruntled schlub writing the story. Commentators need no credentials because that would require ‘vetting’, and, according to the LML, vetting is, “not practiced on members of the media or anyone the media proclaims is a commentator”.

Oftentimes, the ‘commentator’ is someone from the academic world:

Bruce Ackerman, an expert on constitutional law at Yale University, said in the Washington Post: “As commanding general, McChrystal has no business making such public pronouncements.”

Constitutional and lawyer…now there’s an oxymoron. Given the Left’s propensity for getting really credible ‘commentators’, I highly suspect Mr. Ackerman also thinks the Constitution implicitly states a president can take over the private sector.

Relations between the general and the White House began to sour when his report, which painted a grim picture of the allied mission in Afghanistan, was leaked. White House aides have since briefed against the general’s recommendations.

Now, here’s some hubris: The White House briefed “against the general’s recommendations”.

Which leads us to this question: Just who is more qualified to call the shots in Afghanistan, the general who is actually in Afghanistan, or our spoiled, man-child president who was stupid enough to use his outside voice when he said, “I’m not interested in victory”?

This question can only be answered by a comparison of the two men.

May I present Barack Obama and General McChrystal.

An average day for McChrystal, his men, and their Commander in Chief. Now might be a good time to say a prayer for your military.

Obama: “If McChrystal Was a Gay, Tax-Evading Liberal, He Could Have All the Troops He Wanted.”

Obama has refused to quickly approve a request from his commanders for a major troop build-up in Afghanistan, insisting first on a full vetting of the current strategy.

Democrats vetting military strategy? That’s tantamount to Courtney Love vetting your baby sitter. Frightening doesn’t even begin to cover it.

I’m not real impressed with the Democrats and their vetting skills. Call me picky, but didn’t they vet Rahm Emanuel, tax fraud aficionado? And didn’t Timothy Guietner come away from his vetting with two enthusiastic thumbs up even though he, like Emanuel, blew off paying his taxes?

Of course, sometimes the vetting does get a bit sloppy, as in the case of Van Jones, who, according to the White House:

“…was not as thoroughly vetted as other administration officials,” the official said. “It’s fair to say there were unknowns.”

Actually, it’s fair to say they forgot to tell him to keep his raving communist tendencies under wraps.

And let’s not forget Kevin Jennings, Assistant Deputy Secretary for the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools. This guy was obviously vetted by Barney Frank. Jennings’ claim to fame is being the founder of GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network) and the brain child behind teaching school kids the fine art of “fisting“. Did I mention that he is in charge of ‘safe’ schools?

Needless to say, if I were McChrystal and I was told by a gaggle of Democrats that they wanted to vet my military strategy, I’d give them the driving finger as I walked, locked and loaded, to my Humvee to kill some bad guys.

For St. Beal: May It Not Be In Vain

This soldier died for the very things Obama, his Commander in Chief, wants to destroy: Our freedom, our sovereignty, and our future. America is being attacked from without and within. Soldiers like Sgt. Beal are holding the front lines while those at home are giving up the rear. As a Navy wife, I can only pray that the sacrifice of our soldiers won’t be in vain.

While it’s easy to be discouraged about the state of America, this video (link below) will remind you that deep in the heart of America there are still people who know the difference between a true hero and a deranged pop icon mythically brought to the level of hero by virtue of his record sales and scandals.

Displaying this level of affection for an American soldier, let alone, America, is anathema to liberals. And their derision toward America, and the people who love her and are willing to die for her, is quickly becoming mainstream.

As I watched this video I was struck by the realization that we on the home front aren’t fighting nearly as hard to protect this country as this soldier did in Afghanistan. No, we shouldn’t turn into citizen soldiers ourselves, brandishing semi-automatics ala PLO (or the Black Panthers), but we should be doing more to honor the sacrifice of soldiers like Sgt. Beal. We need to fight against the tide of liberal anti-Americanism that pervades our politics, media, and schools. We need to stop listening to the blathering on the mainstream infomercials we call the news in this country. We need to stop sitting on our hands while Obama methodically turns this country into a socialist state. We need to stop shaking our heads when we should be shaking our fists.

We need to stop believing the lie that conservatism is dead. We need to stop letting them bully us into a corner. We need to stop acquiescing to the liberal talking points. We need to stop believing the reality they are trying to create. We need to stop being silent.

We need to line more streets with salutes and flags. We need to speak up and demand the election of men who have integrity and intestinal fortitude. We need to look at our children and take responsibility for what we will be leaving them. We need to speak up. We have voices; we need to use them.

Contrary to what those with the microphone would have us think, it is my firm belief that we are not the minority. It’s high time we stopped acting like it.

Watch this video and see what Sgt. Beal died for…and what we all should be fighting for.
