Army Veteran Allen West Compares Obama to Neville Chamberlain

Army veteran Rep. Allen West served in the United States Army for more than 20 years of active duty service. He was deployed several times to serve in Iraq.

On Wednesday, after Barack Obama spiked the football from Afghanistan, West posted this tweet comparing Obama to Neville Chamberlain.

The liberal media reported on West’s latest criticism of Obama.

In a tweet this morning, Congressman Allen West linked to an article detailing a suicide bombing in Kabul, the Afghan capital that President Barack Obama had just departed from, and… took the side of the Taliban.

Pres flew into Afghanistan at night for 7 hrs,” West wrote. “As sun came up, Taliban gave its response 2 his Chamberlain like actions.”

The Taliban response was to detonate two suicide bombs, killing at least seven and leaving the American Embassy on lockdown during an extended firefight, according to ABC News. And the Islamist militant group has at least one congressman who is content to blame the president on its behalf for the killing of schoolchildren.

“President Obama obviously does not understand the nature and motivating objectives of the Taliban. I will soon be traveling to the Afghanistan theater of operations to assess the mission and future,” West wrote on Facebook last night. “After already spending much time over there I can tell you there will never be a secure Afghanistan as long as the enemy has sanctuary in Pakistan. Nation building is not our objective, it is to destroy radical islamists whereever they exist.”

West has long used his experience in Iraq and Afghanistan as a campaign tactic, and in an op-ed in the Sun-Sentinel last month said that Obama “has never served his country in uniform, or risked his life to defend its freedoms and liberties on distant shores.”

    Col West is right. . .

    Obama used the trip simply for political gain. . the deal with Afghanistan was not historic at all. .talked about working on a deal. . . more like an outline. .

    Obama went there strictly to look like a leader. . .which he is not. . .

    I could not agree more.

    Barry was sunning himself and playing golf in Hawaii while being raised by Communists and trained in Moslem schools abroad. The man hates America and does not have any use for free market capitalism. He is just fine with statism and total contol of our lives. His policy of leading from behind is making a horse’s **s of him and us.

    Let’s send him packing this Fall. Worst. President. Ever.

    Neither serving in uniform or being in combat are necessary requirements for understanding and implementing tactics and strategy over there. An ability to have a clear, reasoned understanding, an ability to develop military experts to advise you and an ability to lead rather than using this for political gain are requirements. Obama fails on this.

    The problem, however, is Alan West’s own credibility. He’s a crackpot.

    I couldn’t agree more. I’ve been comparing Obama to Chamberlain ever since Obama started talking about feeding Egypt and Jerusalem to the Islamic crocodile and telling us it would make everything better.

  • Ryan

    What do you expect from a Commander-in-Chief that doesn’t even like the idea of American Victory?

  • TheresaAK

    Unlike the Usurper, Congressman West knows who the enemy is and is not afraid to call them out..

  • Paul in N. AL

    West is only one of very few GOPers with balls. We really need to get rid of these cowards like Boehner, Lugar, Coburn, and McConnell.

    100 % right!

    Having studied the lead up to WWII, I have to say that Chamberlain made the right call at the time. His “appeasement” was a result of understanding that Great Britain was horribly unprepared for war. He bought time. Winston Churchill was not a rabid criticizer of Chamberlain because he knew the sad state of the British military. He provided advice to Chamberlain prior to the negotiations.
    Colonel Travis and the men at the Alamo bought time, too, even though the Alamo could not be defended. Accordingly, under the Chamberlain line of criticism, the defenders of the Alamo did nothing but waste men and resources in a futile effort. Anyone want to say that? Not me. Sometimes leaders must make decisions they don’t like even if people will forever damn them.

    robin, #14,

    So, you’re saying that the U.S. military is in a “sad state,” and “horribly unprepared for war,” and just “buying time?” The analysis you provide is as ridiculous as any lefty argument I’ve EVER seen.

    Your obamessiah just declared the war on terrorism to be OVER. Unless the jihadists have won, how on earth can you compare our military’s efforts to the Alamo?!

    It’s clear that only you and chamberlain believe he made the “right call.” Just ask the Czech people (especially the jews) how that worked out for them.

    Besides women, school kids, Christians, our allies, non-totalitarians and anyone who disagrees with him, who else has your appeasement-loving pal in the WH sold out this week?

    Your head needs to get pulled out before you suffer any more brain damage from oxygen starvation.
