Iran Loves Emanuel’s Afghan Comments

From Iran’s Press TV:

Obama ‘beginning’ war in Afghanistan from ‘scratch’

Sun, 18 Oct 2009

An adviser to US president Barack Obama says Washington is "beginning" from "scratch" the war in Afghanistan, which he says the Bush administration had set "adrift."

White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel said on Sunday that former US president George W. Bush had failed to ask key questions regarding the war in Afghanistan.

"The president [Obama] is asking the questions that have never been asked on the civilian side, the political side, the military side and the strategic side," Emanuel told CNN’s State of the Union.

"Do you have a credible Afghan partner for this process that can provide the security and the type of services that the Afghan people need?" Emanuel cited as one of the outstanding questions to be asked from Afghan leaders.

The White House chief of staff added that the Obama administration, upon coming to power, had to start the war in Afghanistan from the beginning.

"It’s clear that basically we had a war for eight years that was going on, that’s adrift, that we’re beginning at scratch, just at the starting point … and that there’s not a security force, an army, and the types of services that are important for the Afghans to become a true partner," Emanuel said.

This is while the situation in the war-torn country has deteriorated since Obama took office in January.

Afghanistan is currently witnessing the highest level of violence since the 2001 US-led invasion, despite the presence of more than 100,000 foreign troops.

Since the start of the year about 1,500 Afghan civilians have lost their lives, and 250 US soldiers have have returned home in body bags as a result of the wrong policies adopted by foreign powers in the country.

This is just one example of the kind of propaganda gifts the Obama administration gives our nation’s enemies, day in and day out.

It’s almost as if they want to buck up those fighting on the other side.

    What are the “types of services” that the ballerina mentions twice?
    Is this administration going to try to convince us that Afghans need socialized medicine, too?

    “The president [Obama] is asking the questions that have never been asked on the civilian side, the political side, the military side and the strategic side,”

    Funny. Obama had this all figured out while he was campaigning. Now that he’s Commander in Chief we’re supposed to be amazed by his ability to ask questions (while our casualties increase).

    What a neutered pup!

    News flash there Auntie Em!
    We went in there without an Afghan partner. Sooooo…..what’s that question now?

    Is Emmanuel another Drooling Barney?

    Is he so angry at his sexuality that he intends to destroy the world to get revenge?

    These people are really sick.

    And if you are scornful of the thought, consdier the mental cases who have ruled the world throughout history. What makes you think sane leaders are the norm just because the US has been relatively blessed for 230 years?

    Another interesting question is why these kooks are repeating the mistakes LBJ made in Viet Nam, and the crazy foreign policy of Carter, the blubbering idiot and worst president of all time.

    It’s as if there is a template in their brains that cannot be violated, no matter what happens.

    Rahm Emanual is a dumb, lying jackass. No wonder Obama hand-picked this as-hole.
