Stunner. Democrat Obama Ready to Cut-&-Run From Afghanistan; Despite Warnings From Generals
Remember when Obama lectured Republicans about finishing the fight in Afghanistan?
“We need to finish the fight against Al-Qaeda and the Taliban instead of going into Iraq.”
On Wednesday democrat Barack Obama will ignore his generals and announce his plans to cut and run from Afghanistan, the real war on terror.
The Guardian reported:
Barack Obama is set to reject the advice of the Pentagon by announcing on Wednesday night the withdrawal of up to 30,000 troops from Afghanistan by November next year, in time for the US presidential election.
The move comes despite warnings from his military commanders that recent security gains are fragile. They have been urging him to keep troop numbers high until 2013.
The accelerated drawdown will dismay American and British commanders in Kabul, who have privately expressed concern that the White House is now being driven by political rather than military imperatives.
“This is not something we feel entirely comfortable with,” a Whitehall official told the Guardian.
Obama’s nationally televised address, the sixth he has given since becoming president, is intended to mark the beginning of the end of American military deployment in Afghanistan, from a present high of almost 100,000 troops.
This news is really not so shocking. After all, Obama wouldn’t be a true democrat if he wasn’t willing to cut-&-run from battle.
