35,000 More Troops in Afghanistan…
Is President Obama About to Make a Huge Mistake?
Will we get warfare or health care in the Obama Administration? If the media is correct in reporting that President Obama is planning to announce a major military escalation, perhaps a whole new war, in Afghanistan, then that is the question. Will this Country pour another $50 billion per year into an unnecessary, misguided war that will in all likelihood end badly?
How much militarism can the U.S. afford? How many U.S., mostly working class, troops are we willing to sacrifice in worthless military ventures that have nothing to do with the safety and welfare of our population – or any other population for that matter? Have we learned nothing from Viet Nam and Iraq? It is mind boggling to see the seemingly intelligent, liberal Barack Obama bend to the will of a general that should have been fired for insubordination when he undermined the President in public.
I sometimes wonder what could have become of Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society had he not made the mistake that President Obama is apparently ready to make. Congress can stop this.
Call Congressman Moore and/or Congresswoman Jenkins and tell them to vote against this misadventure.
