Attention. Anyone who thought The Big Zero would wholesale pull out every last US person in 16 months, TS.
Not only did he have the shock of his life when he took office and caught a glimpse of how the real world operated, he had to call GW for advice before he made his announcement. OOOhhhhh, BURN!!!!
Don't feel bad. Reagan thought he knew everything until he took office and then saw the real mess the US financial situation was in. Carter sugar coated the situation to everyone and Reagan stepped in it bigtime. Shamed into action he did a fair job of pulling us out.
Barry has wisely come to terms with the fact that we are at war and you just don't cut and run unless you want more pictures from the rooftop of an embassy.
I'm sure Iran is handing out free bus vouchers to the terrorists to mainline it cross country to "Barry's Vietnam" Why else would he send 17k young men and women into harms way? What happened to the group hugs and butt licking he promised?
Right about the same time Barry has us bogged down in a quagmire (due to indecision) in Afghanistan, he will be pulling the last (except for 50k) troops out of Iraq while the one way freeway through Iran will do a 180.
US troops will be in one of several scenarios by 2012.
1. Back to fighting full time on both fronts due to failed prosecution of the war.
2. Add Pakistan into the mix for three full time fronts.
4. All of the other garbagecanistans join the fight.
3. China cuts off the cash flow to influence our position in the ME. We are in such bad financial shape due to the 'rats money grab, all troops including advisors will come home from every offshore base worldwide. Thousands die in Operation Cut 'n Run. The Guard will be discharged back to their hometown bases and go on welfare which won't be too bad since they will have HillaryCare.
4. Cheney runs against Barry and wins. All terroists world wide see the futility and commit suicide. Peace reigns on the planet. Israel gives up half their territory in a grand gesture. Group hugs for everyone. Algore graciously re-engraves his Nobel plaque and presents it to Dick. Dick vapor locks in the Oval Office and VP (insert name here) is caretaker until the next election.
Opinion may not be that of the poster.
