Obama: 'We Have a Daunting Task' - TIME
I thought the Onion headline was pretty funny:
TIME publishes definitive Obama puff piece
From the article....
And that, I think, at least gives me some hope that if we get our strategy right, we still have the most valuable possible resource to get the job done, and that's our men and women in uniform.
Article from 2007
Political Radar: Obama to Bush on Troops Surge: It's A Mistake
ABC News' Karen Travers Reports: Potential Democratic presidential contender Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) emerged from a meeting with President Bush at the White House today and told reporters that he "personally indicated that an escalation of troop levels in Iraq was a mistake and that we need a political accommodation rather than a military approach to the sectarian violence there."
Obama still hasn't got the right strategy....
4,000 dead, 30,000 wounded, and $700 billion dollars wasted to set up a Shia government allied with Iran.
What was the strategy again?
Exactly my point why should we waste 4000 people dead, 30000 wounded and 700 billion dollars? Obama's position of withdrawing within 16 months regardless of the situation on the ground is wasting all of the sacfrices made.
I actually think Obama will be saved by the progress on the ground, brought on in large part by the surge he opposed, and still says he would have opposed, even though he admits it has been a success. Things are going well enough we should be able to leave in the near future, and Obama will come out looking great for it. It is great things are going so well we should be able to leave soon, but it sucks ass Obama will gain from it.
I think most people are smarter than you give them credit for.
I hope you are right on that one Maybe I have just been talking to Kirk and Bobo to much Wait did I just make a personal attack on kirk again. Damn I am sorry
