The Taliban get their wish!

Reaction: Obama's strategy for Afghanistan

Pakistan officials wary of Obama's strategy for Afghanistan

Nato pledges 5,000 troops

Remember the Taliban get their wish?

We are getting deeper into their trap. However at this point I am sorry to say I am afraid Obama has taken the right action but we are led to think it is our security that is at stake and we automatically think attack on the US. That is not the immediate threat there and I can't believe I feel like I bought into this but I just woke up. Taliban vow to fight US troop surge

We were threatened with the domino affect during the Vietnam War. To me it was a ruse that was employed to scare people and justify expanding and staying in the war. We were warned that if we allowed Vietnam fall to communism the rest of Asia and then the world would follow.

You see how that worked out don’t you? That said, we have a historic town here many of you in the States may know named Marblehead as it is on the coast and across the harbor from Salem. We always enjoyed sitting on the beach watching dawn break over the Atlantic thus the saying dawn breaks over Marblehead meaning I finally see the light.

Well I just woke up As you know I was dead against adding more troops as I thought we should concentrate on the border and help Pakistan who does want their sovereignty and I still feel that way but I now realize Afghanistan is important but not the way in which we all perceive it.

As you know, we have discussed many times JSOC is the military's chief terrorists hunting squad and has units now operating in Afghanistan on Pakistan's western border and in Pakistan. A secondary mission is to secure foreign nuclear arsenals.

As you know the mission has taken on added importance in recent months, as Islamic extremists have taken territory close to the capital of Islamabad and could destabilize Pakistan's shaky democracy. Pakistan appears to be holding off the Taliban threat thus the threat of the US too feel the need to act on defending their Nukes. Just in case the US Has a Plan to Secure Pakistan Nukes if Country Falls to Taliban

I now believe Afghanistan is just step a domino headed towards Pakistan and her nuclear weapons. That I believe is the threat of Afghanistan falling into extremist hands as it is increasingly obvious to me that getting Pakistan’s nukes is the ultimate goal of the Taliban, Al Qaeda, militants, whatever you want to call them.

That would put us in a situation the entire world better be extremely concerned about and why NATO if right to step up and Russia and China better step up.

* I am hearing we are on our way out of Iraq and Afghanistan or so some might think but just wait to see what 18 months brings. I keep hearing a stupid saying attributed to the Taliban “you have the watches but we have the time” Hell most do not know what a watch is and we better make the time. Like it or not we are stuck with this fight not for Afghanistan’s Government but for the security of Pakistan’s nukes!

I don't buy this at all. During the Soviet occupation they used the locals for target practice and it eventually sickened their blood-thirsty generals. A win in Afghanistan is what? I have no idea.

Obama mentioned Pakistan several times and probably their stability is the real objective and that's not going to happen either. All the Madrassa's are in Pakistan, they have more radical Islamists than anybody. The Muslim world sees itself as persecuted by the big bad west and you would have to go back a thousand years, to the Crusades, to see how the distrust began.

Holte the way I see it there is no win and I continue to say this will make the 100 year war look short. I now think Pakistan's nukes are everyone's goal. Just imagine what we are up against if they get in the wrong hands.
Yesterday I posted the link atoms for peace. I was amazed that we built Iran and Pakistan's first plant. We are our own worst enemy!
