Campaign For Liberty — Obama's War
Well yeah, but this is no different then what Bush did. It is actually a war from the Bush years, so it is his war not Obama's war.
Of course it's no different from what Bush did, that's the problem. Obama is the President now and he has the power to stop this nonsense. If he doesn't, then it is indeed his war.
During his campaign, Obama promised to increase our military force in Afghanistan and to strike targets of opportunity inside of Pakistan. Why would anyone have expected him to do anything else once in office?
Just because this was expected doesn't mean it should not be condemned.
the president cant stop the war becuase the terroriist are i n pakistian and Afghaniistan.
Kevin, Pakistan is not our ally despite both sides claim they are. They been hiding Osama Bin Laden and other terrorists since 2001 and would claim a act of war if we went to get such terrorists.
We should of never been in Iraq, but we should of had done better in Afghanistan and we need to stop the terrorists in Pakistan. If we don't stop them there, they will just merely bide their time again and become stronger then ever as their survival can be used as a terrorist recruitment drive.
Whether or not it should be condemned is a separate issue from whether this is a Bush or an Obama policy. Imo, it is an area in which they agree on what the policy should be, and I agree with both of them. I just don't see a viable alternative to using military force in this conflict. In order to protect ourselves, we cannot allow governments to take power that will host al Qaeda or its affiliates. 9/11 taught us that.
Killing children doesn't make the U.S. safer. It gives people the incentive to become terrorists and attack us at home and our troops or officials abroad.
I do truly have a good, hearty laugh whenever anyone actually believes Obama is going to change Washington. He was elected solely on his rhetoric. Same war, same tactics, same economic policies, same results.
