Compliments of Bush Afghanistan is Obama's Vietnam!
Why have new supply routes to Afghanistan never been cultivated? They will change nothing though in Obama's Vietnam compliments of Bush!
Pakistan militant attack halts US, NATO supplies
NATO seeks Iran help over Afghanistan
Militants take out bridge in Khyber region
Afghanistan: Can Obama succeed in the 'land of the unruly?' No! Afghanistan is Obama's Vietnam compliments of Bush! Land of the Unruly, Graveyard of Empires, front of the war on terror, whatever you call it they have never been defeated militarily and will not now. Adding thirty thousand troops will do nothing. This is just beginning!
Afghanistan Obama's Vietnam
This is an interesting read From Arab news! Afghanistan: Obama’s Vietnam?
It is really sickening that this seems to be true today but the Arab news was saying you are not a US President until you attack somebody! Well now Obama has been bloodied after sending drones into Pakistan and killing insurgent as he promised he would do while he was running. This is just beginning and after 7 years!
One of my sons wants to go back there and one is there right now flying supplies into Afghanistan. It is blowing as you know and Bush guaranteed a loss there and everywhere else with his war mongering anti Islam actions and his attack on Iraq to get into the middle east and help Israel set up a new middle east order. Our supply lines from Pakistan to Afghanistan have been the focus of Islamists for a while and I was wondering why we have not looked for a supply route from one of our allies the Stans?
However looking at the map and giving it some thought the same problem would exist wherever we change the supply route too! We could add a million troops and it would only be matched by the Taliban and other insurgents. They can and will more than match us fighter to fighter and this is their home turf. I used to say if we could secure the Afghan Pakistan Border we could then concentrate on the Taliban and rebuilding Afghanistan. However, knowing the territory and seeing the map there is no way in hell that is going to happen.
Remember when we had Bin Laden trapped in Tora Bora? We could not even secure that or wouldn't! I have four men or sons 3 of which are in this! It sickens me knowing that I advocated the military as a career. In my defense I will say that was pre war monger Bush. The three of them insist on being Lifers and knowing this entire mess is just beginning I have to wonder what is next for them or their children for that matter thanks to the mess bush has already made of their future!
