War President, Barack Obama?

Afghanistan just may be called Barack Obama's War by the end of his first term in office.

Yes, as reported by The Washington Post, As the Obama administration expands U.S. involvement in Afghanistan, military experts are warning that the United States is taking on security and political commitments that will last at least a decade and a cost that will probably eclipse that of the Iraq war. Ouch!

In the past few weeks on this blog, I have been called The White Pundit, and other things, because I don't support Barack Obama's elitist approach of dealing with black folks and black issues. So what should I call Barack Obama? George Bush or Richard Nixon?

As reported by The Washington Post, Since the invasion of Afghanistan eight years ago, the United States has spent $223 billion on war-related funding for that country, according to the Congressional Research Service. Aid expenditures, excluding the cost of combat operations, have grown exponentially, from $982 million in 2003 to $9.3 billion last year. More HERE

AAPP: Americans should expect big Afghanistan -Casualties in this alleged operation of enduring freedom. as reported by AP, There are more than 100,000 international soldiers in Afghanistan, nearly two-thirds of them in the US military with British and Canadian forces also playing a role in the south, the most dangerous battlefield. Without the latest death, 19 international soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan this month, according to the icasualties.org website which compiles a toll. More HERE

Has anyone noticed that there has been a lack of Coverage regarding the death of Americans in Afghanistan?

Here is what will happen more and more in the future:

- BBC NEWS | UK | Three Paras killed in Afghanistan

- 7 U.S. soldiers killed in Afghanistan - Afghanistan- msnbc.com

I Thought we voted for Barack Obama to get us out of these wars?
