    LOL... Yessir... he did... but inheriting a war doesn't mean that one should promote the interests of the enemy when it falls to you to pick up the colors.

    Now The Lord of the Idiots has advanced Islamic terrorism a BILLION DOLLARS... amongst other pro-terrorists moves...

    It's beyond bad news folks... it's the worst news we could possibly have... our President is part and parcel of our enemy.

    What is the solution?

    1. Giving more money to corrupt Pakistani officials in hopes that they stop the Taliban? - most of the money probably will never be accounted for.

    2. Increase missile strikes and risk killing more civilians and alienating Pakistani civilians even more? - Do we really want to give the Taliban this kind of propaganda?

    3. Go in their with our own troops?

    It was bound to happen. The Pakistan military has a lot more up their sleeve's than they've shown. They've been trying to play the same limp wrist kiss ass game we play and it just doesn't work for them any more than it does for us. Just let the majority of the people there start to believe that the Taliban is going to take over and they'll turn the military loose to fight the only way they know how to fight. Will we turn out heads the other way when that happens? Probably not.

    Regardless of who is to blame for this (eight years of Bush and handouts to Pak or Obama and another seven billion handout), the real question is:

    How can this be solved?

    Seriously.


    This may sound political to many of you, but the cold hard truth is that the Bush Administration really took their eye off the ball by focusing on Iraq.

    Really bad move.
