Afghanistan or Bust, The Barack Obama War in Afghanistan.

AAPP says: Well here we go again, another war in Vietnam, this time in Afghanistan.

Sounding more and more like George W. Bush, than a new leader of change, President Obama on Friday announced his strategy to fight terrorism in Afghanistan and Pakistan, a plan that includes more troops, new legislation, improved troop training and added civilian expertise. Yes, more civilian expertise may be needed on the ground, but I thought we wanted to get out of there, instead of making this another Vietnam. Get this, President Barack Obama said the following:

"The United States of American did not choose to fight a war in Afghanistan. Nearly 3,000 of our people were killed on September 11, 2001," Obama said Friday.

"We have a clear and focused goal: to disrupt, dismantle and defeat al Qaeda in Pakistan and Afghanistan," he said. It appears the Taliban is not concerned.

Pakistani fire fighters extinguish a blaze at the NATO supply trucks' terminal on the outskirts of Peshawar. Seems like al Qaeda has the clear and focused goal: to disrupt, dismantle and defeat America and NATO.

I guess David Rothkopf was right when he wrote in his Where Are The Leaders Column in The Washington Post, " Even watching Obama at times, it seems that we've elected -- despite their smarts and earnestness -- a government of stumbling technocrats whose solutions either fall short or go too far. It's enough to make you want to pull the covers back over your head." More HERE

voters back President Obama’s troop buildup in Afghanistan at this point.

Toner, who was in Afghanistan for five months to train Afghan soldiers, was scheduled to come home Wednesday, his aunt Linda Moosekian said. a 26-year-old Navy lieutenant from Ventura County was shot to death in Afghanistan just days before he was to return home to see his wife and relatives.
