It might sound a bit odd for me to make such an outrageous proposal. After all, I'm a hawkish, pro-military Vietnam Vet. Conservative, and I've been a lifelong adherent of the "nuke 'em 'til they glow" school of foreign policy. But I say we should surrender because the facts are plain: we have already surrendered in deed, if not in name.
Yep, it's time to surrender in Afghanistan. Yep, that's right. Surrender. If we are not going to support the troops that are already there and respond to the wishes of General McChrystal who is THERE and is not only in charge of this operation but has the experience in fighting a war, and who was appointed by this Obamanation. Then why the hell stay there?
hell no! American's don't surrender up freedom, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Alas, you make a most convincing argument. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness may be inalienable rights but the freedom to enjoy those rights has to be earned because there's always someone, somewhere, that if given the chance, wants to and will take away those rights.
Why waste good American lives there? I hope that we can finally come to terms with the idea that we only engage in conflicts that we seek to win, not just lob missiles and go on bombing raids. This is not the way to win a war. We can soften up the landscape a little, but it takes determined effort and strategy to go to war to win. We have lost our nerve, or are easily sidetracked by news of American deaths on the battlefield. Osama Bin Laden didn't set out just to inflict a little sting against America. He declared war. Bush understood that, but seemed to step back from full confrontation after deploying the troops. I never understood that.
At this point, it's Radical Islamic factions who want to take away those rights, supported by a Russian/Chinese covert geopolitical strategy that is facilitating Islamic terrorism. Liberal pacifism and political correctness have us well into the process of surrendering to them, or at least enough Americans favor appeasement which, in the long run equates to surrender. And now we have a Commander in Chief that can’t even make up his mind as to what the hell he wants to do over there.
In my eyes, being Politically Correct is a excuse for being a coward. The entire PC movement is predicated on cowardice and the liberal left are sniveling cowards as a whole. How many millions are going to die because the pathetic cowardly left who sees no problems controlling their own populations like children refuse to deal with anything unpleasant like the Religion of Death, Islam? Mr. Obama, Hang your head in shame.
