    As the U.S. military under the Obama administration increases efforts in Afghanistan and the surrounding region, there will be more American casualties, Vice President Biden said this morning on CBS' "Face the Nation."

    Snip

    Asked about the predator drone attacks in Pakistan, Biden said, "I can't speak to any particular attack. I can't speak to any particular action. It's not appropriate for me to do that. But I can say that the president of the United States said during his campaign and in the debates that if there is an actionable target, of a high-level al Qaeda personnel, that he would not hesitate to use action to deal with that."



    Would the Obama administration notify the Pakistani government before making any cross- border attacks?

    "I always try to be completely candid with you, but I can't respond to that question," Biden said. "I'm not going to respond to that question."

    shadow,

    I'll asume this is your admission that sarah palin, sean hannity, and all your wingnut buddies were lying their asses off for the last 12 months that obama was a radical pacifist liberal who would raise the white flag of surrender, cave to terrorists, and invite them to the white house for tea and crumpets.

    Thanks! I knew y'all were lying like dirty dogs!:clap2:

    I wonder if the Democrats will now photograh each and every single coffin of our dead military from Obama's war?

    Biden is correct. If we are going to step up measures, then more will die. The terrian is tough, the weather is tough and hostiles are many. Further, we will be crossing the borders, as we have been and not from the sky!

    So Biden has made no profound statements here.

    Willow you are such a partisan patooie.

    It's not Obama's war, Katnip Kid, it's America's war. The real war we should have been in all along with the right resources.

    I hope they take away the hiding of the coffins coming home. If not, I will send my complaints to the Whitehouse.

    Yes you did, but then I was referring to Iraq. A whore of a different color.

    Afghanistan is the war we need to engage in and end. Trouble, is now we arre going to have one hell of a tougher time. This is the war we launched against the country that harbored the people who attacked US on 9-11.

    Divecon, you can not get a liberal to admit the truth about Iraq and the blame their party played in it.

    I in no way accept how Bush handled things in Iraq, but, that does not excuse the 8 years of Clinton, but, they will never, never admit that truth.

    In fact, I doubt that many even understand the truth behind where clinton failed.

    Further and again, I do not accept the actions of Bush, but, taking Saddam out was a good thing and it was needed. It makes me wonder how involved some of these Vet's are with active military.

    Was Al Quada and the Taliban in Iraq?

    No?

    Then you have no game, Lycurgus.

    The excuse for 8 years of Clinton was two elections. Truthy enough for you?

    Which failure? There were many of them.

    A good thing possibly, but a good thing for america?

    I rather doubt it.
