Whose your momma?

So, who still thinks Obama is running the show? When he announced his Afghan escalation at West Point, Obama assured the nation we’d start withdrawing our forces by 2011.

Up to the mike steps Gen. Davy Petraeus who says, “Not so fast, baby! Them troops don’t leave ‘til I say they leave! Hell, you don’t mess with a viable profit center, so stop acting like a commander-in-chief.”

It seems it is now going to take years (at $10 billion per) before the Afghan police and army are able to take over responsibility for their own security. According to Thursday’s New York Times, Karzai says Afghanistan won’t be able to foot the bill for its security until 2024, if then.

Remember, that’s $10 billion a year just to beef up security in Afghanistan. That doesn’t include the expenses we incur for keeping our soon to be 100,000 troops on the ground.

All this just so we can control a wasteland.

Pointing out that the lunatics are running the asylum is a shop-worn cliché.

But, goddamn it…

Let's see: along with the asylum cliche', we have, "Throwing good money after bad", "Haste makes waste" and a few more. At the moment,though, I am just busy being appalled by Obama's "Peace" prize acceptance speech in OSLO, and his acknowlegement that many will "kill... and be killed". What enormous and diffident arrogance! I think he should trade in the moniker of Commander in Chief for Resplendor in Chief. Didn't we have someone as POTUS once before who was "all hat and no cattle"?

9:10 PM where I am. For the record, the spurious solicitation just above is an insult to what we are trying to do and say here. Anyway...

I will be very curious to get your "take" on the Oslo acceptance speech. Personally, I am apalled. Arrogant, disconnected, deferential, aloof and downright maddening. See ya in the morning....
