HAD ENOUGH YET?

The national media is reporting today that Obama will likely make a speech next Tuesday to declare his intention to "finish the job" in Afghanistan. That means more troops, it means more of your money down the rat hole, and it means alot more innocent civilians will be killed in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The blood will be reeking from Obama's hands.

But even with all that some "liberals," who call themselves peace activists, will still find some lame way to excuse Obama and to refuse to hold him to the same standards that they held Bush to. And for this I am beyond furious.

What more evidence do we need that Obama is just another tin-horn corporate militarist lackey? What more evidence do we need to see that no amount of wishing otherwise, Obama ain't gonna do a damn thing different than Bush did in Afghanistan.

OK, he is going to say there he wants to get out of there - but first we must step up our training of Afghan military and police forces. That was Bush's line as well. So what is the change?

Some liberals will say that Bush created this mess and that Obama now has to clean it up. But if you listen to the interview just below with Dan Ellsberg and Matthew Hoh it is quite evident that there is no way to clean it up. It will only get worse....and Obama knows that!

You can't stay a fool forever.....at some point liberals who profess to be peace activists have to fish or cut bait. They can't claim to be against war and then find ridiculous ways to excuse a Democrat when he is running one. We've been through this before with LBJ in the late 60's and Clinton during the military attacks on Yugoslavia, Iraq and Haiti.

The warmongers are not fooling anyone this time except those who are more dedicated to their bankrupt political parties than they are to the truth.

It is a big mistake to send more troops to Afghanistan.It will cost the US taxpayers billions of dollars , and probably the lives of many young soldiers and civilians for nothing!

The entire faked fiasco is a huge sham. Think what you will about 9/11 Conspiracists, but the answer lies in that fateful day and who was complicit and responsible (in the US) for its planning and implementation.

Everything hinges on that day and can be solved by real investigations with swift and harsh retribution for those responsible.
