Obama & Biden On Troop Surge

H/T Hotairpundit

Of note, President Bush did not need to travel to West Point for a photo-op.

H/T Andy from Beaverton for this one.

Well he stopped dithering. Sending 30,000 additional troops.

However he is putting the Afghan government on notice that they have until 2011 to pick take over the fight because he is pulling out then.

I guess you can call it the 'Afghanization of the war'. It will succeed like 'Vietnamization'
of the battle against the Viet Cong and North Vietnam. We all know what happened there.

Setting a firm deadline on pulling out regardless of well things go is irresponsible.

What a mess. The USA is in a pickle mainly because it can no longer continue long protracted struggles due to the financial stress and the general public hostility to sticking it out.

If the Dems would stop all this massive spending, even more than did our moderate RINO's, the expense wouldn't be that severe.

But, I fear this slate of officials in charge of my country desire only to see it fail and become a cheap carbon copy of the failed Soviet Union.

I only hope we can hold out until 2010 and neuter this bunch of socialists.
