Obama Stresses Exit From Afghanistan

From an elated Associated Press:

White House: Exit plan from Afghanistan is key

By CHARLES BABINGTON (AP)

November 25, 2009

WASHINGTON — The White House says President Barack Obama is placing heavy emphasis on how the United States eventually will withdraw from Afghanistan even as he plans to announce a troop increase next week.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Wednesday that the United States is in its ninth year of military involvement in Afghanistan and "we are not going to be there another eight or nine years."

Gibbs says Obama’s recent meetings with military advisers have often focused on how to train Afghanistan’s police and army so they can secure and hold areas taken from the Taliban after U.S. forces are gone.

Obama will address the nation Tuesday night on his Afghan strategy from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. He will brief key members of Congress earlier that day…

Remember how the Democrats demanded the exit strategy from Iraq.

They just want to give the terrorists hope.

Hang on until such and such a date.

And that is exactly what Mr. Obama is doing here.

    All we ask is that the President commit to destroying al-Qaeda and the Taliban. Why can’t he just define that as the goal and do what we need to do, to make it happen? Whether that’s 2 years or 10 years, a decisive defeat of our enemies is the main thing we need.

    • Liberals Demise says:

      Barry would commit to destroying al-Qaeda/Taliban but he is waaaaaaaay to busy destroying the Constitution of the United States to bother.

      “We have met the enemy and he resides in the White House”

    • proreason says:

      That wouldn’t help the boy king’s quest to be emperor of the world, would it, Professor?

    • ptat says:

      Has anyone ever heard him say the words “win” or “victory” in regards to Afghanistan? Hell no! Just loser talk about “exit strategy” ,”off ramp”, “ending”, “finishing”, etc. Wouldn’t he make a great coach? “C’mon team, we have to find an exit strategy to finish this game!” Appalling!

  2. bill says:

    So why don’t the terrorists just lay low and wait for the off-ramps?

  3. VMAN says:

    I’d like to give my strategy for Afghanistan. Carpet bomb and kill everyone until they renounce Islam and pledge to be good little boys and girls. “But you can’t kill innocent women and children” Yes we can because all those “innocent” children are going to grow up to be terrorists or at least poppy farmers and the “innocent” women are the ones that squeeze the pups out. After we start that any “peaceful” Muslims in this country who objects can either leave the country or go to Gittmo.

  4. Rusty Shackleford says:

    Is there anyone out there in the camp ground who knows enough about Muslims to refute or support this item?
    Can a good Muslim be a good American?

    Theologically – no. Because his allegiance is to Allah, the moon god of Arabia.

    Religiously – no. Because no other religion is accepted by his Allah except Islam.

    Scripturally – no. Because his allegiance is to the five pillars of Islam and the Quran (Koran).

    Geographically – no. Because his allegiance is to Mecca, to which he turns in prayer five times a day.

    Socially – no. Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews.

    Politically – no. Because he must submit to the mullah (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and Destruction of America, the great Satan.

    Domestically – no. Because he is instructed to marry four women and beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him.

    Intellectually – no. Because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.

    Philosophically – no. Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran do not allow freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.

    Spiritually – no. Because when we declare “one nation under God,” the Christian’s God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in The Quran’s 99 excellent names.

    Therefore after much study and deliberation….perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country. They obviously cannot be both “good” Muslims and good Americans.

    And Obama has already said he will side with the muslims.

    • JohnMG says:

      …..”They obviously cannot be both “good” Muslims and good Americans.

      And Obama has already said he will side with the muslims”…..

      Thus we have answered two questions about Obama’s comportment. Not the least of which is why he’s determined to dismantle the Constitution. First, he’s a closet-Muslim, ergo a piss-poor American. Second, he lies about the first.

  5. take_no_prisoners says:

    What a POS! I hope he commits some sort of impeachable offense, otherwise we are stuck with him until 2012. He doesn’t know U.S. history because he was in Kenya and Indonesia when he was the age where these things are usually taught in the public schools. He is either a communist or a fascist with a communist mind-set–either way I can’t wait until we can remove him from office through impeachment or the ballot box. We have a duty to future generations to resist and impede his agenda every step of the way!

    BUCHANAN
    TO OBAMA By Patrick J. Buchanan

    Barack says we need to have a conversation about
    Race in America .. Fair enough. But this time, it
    Has to be a two-way conversation. White America
    Needs to be heard from, not just lectured
    To.. This time, the Silent Majority needs to
    Have its convictions, grievances and
    Demands heard. And among them are
    These: First, America
    Has been the best country on earth for
    Black folks. It was here that 600,000
    Black people, brought from Africa in slave
    Ships, grew into a community of 40
    Million, were introduced to Christian salvation,
    And reached the greatest levels of freedom
    And prosperity blacks have ever known.
    Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank
    God he is an American.
    Second, no people
    Anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than
    White Americans. Untold trillions have
    Been spent since the ‘ 60s on welfare, food
    Stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing,
    Pell grants, student loans, legal
    Services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits
    And poverty programs designed to bring the
    African-American community into the mainstream.
    Governments,
    Businesses and colleges have engaged in
    Discrimination against white folks — with
    Affirmative action, contract set-asides and
    Quotas — to advance black applicants over white
    Applicants. Churches,
    Foundations, civic groups, schools and
    Individuals all over America have donated their
    Time and money to support soup kitchens, adult
    Education, day care, retirement and nursing
    Homes for blacks.

    We hear the grievances.

    Where is the gratitude??

    Barack talks about new ‘ladders of opportunity’ for
    Blacks. Let him go to Altoona? And
    Johnstown, and ask the white kids in Catholic
    Schools how many were visited lately by Ivy
    League recruiters handing out scholarships for
    ‘deserving’ white kids.? Is white
    America really responsible for the fact that the
    Crime and incarceration rates for
    African-Americans are seven times those of white America?
    Is it really White America’s fault that illegitimacy in
    The African-American community has hit 70
    Percent and the black dropout rate from high
    Schools in some cities has reached 50 percent?
    Is that the fault of white America or, first and
    Foremost, a failure of the black community itself?
    As for Racism, its ugliest manifestation is in
    Interracial crime, and especially interracial
    Crimes of violence. Is Barack
    Obama aware that while white criminals
    choose black victims 3 percent of the time,
    Black criminals choose white victims 45 percent
    of the time?
    Is Barack aware that black-on-white rapes are 100
    Times more common than the reverse, that
    Black-on-white robberies were 139 times as
    Common in the first three years of this
    Decade as the reverse?
    We have all heard ad nauseam from the Rev. Al
    about Tawana Brawley, the Duke rape case and Jena. And all turned out to be hoaxes. But about the epidemic of black
    Assaults on whites that are real, we hear
    Nothing. Sorry, Barack, some of us have heard it all before,
    About 40 years and 40 trillion tax dollars ago.

    We are a Christian Nation

    Even if Mr. Obama says we are not.

  7. canary says:

    John Kerry, just said we would leave soldiers in Afganistan as in Iraq, as is normal when America defeats a country, when his only personal experience is how to be the first to leave a war, and get a medal for it..

  8. joeblough says:

    Red Hussein is working for the other side.

    OF COURSE his top priority is getting our people out!

  9. canary says:

    Meanwhile, back in the U.S. muslims are receiving the royal treatment too.

    And what’s Obama’s update on Pakistan being more of a danger to America?

  10. Rip Cord says:

    Did anyone with any sense whatsoever believe that Barak Hussein Obama was going to defeat MUSLIMS in the Global War on Terror? He’s just trying to lose with grace and dignity so as to prevent the lunatics of the left from figuring out who to blame when the next big one hits the US. Barak is a terrorists wet dream.
