President Obama, who arrived today in Kabul, Afghanistan, just finished addressing the nation tonight in a televised speech – addressing a camera, not U.S. troops – telling the public the opposite of the truth: that the United States is pulling out of Afghanistan. In fact, Obama signed an agreement pledging U.S. military involvement in Afghanistan until at least 2024. The war that began under President Bush on October 7, 2001 has essentially been extended with our soldiers in harm’s way for no decent purpose in our nation’s interest another 12 years in what adds up to a 23-year war for nothing.
In chronic re-election campaign mode, Obama, with heavy eyelids and moving his eyes slyly from side to side while reading his script, spoke at an undisclosed location decorated in military beige somewhere at Bagram Air Field at 7:31 pm ET. Though the new agreement stipulates that Afghan forces take over their state’s security in 2013, with U.S. troops scheduled to officially withdraw in 2014, the U.S. is now committed to what Obama calls “an enduring partnership” in which American soldiers train, advise, and assist and fight (his words, not mine) in Afghanistan, where our republic has now endured the longest war in U.S. history.
On the first anniversary of the date that the U.S. launched an assault on Osama bin Laden, who was outrageously given religious burial ceremonies by the U.S. military, Obama chose this date to boast that the U.S. is negotiating with what was once Al Qaeda’s state sponsor, the Taliban (which he pronounces “tolly-bahn”), praise the Afghan security force, which increasingly attacks U.S. soldiers, and refer to 9/11 as the day in which “3,000 innocent men, women and children” were killed, making absolutely no mention of the fact that Americans were murdered on 9/11 for being Americans – mass murdered on American passenger jets, in America‘s tallest skyscrapers and at the center of America‘s military defense. Instead, Obama vowed to protect what he describes as “dignity and human rights” for the people of Afghanistan.
With not a single word about individual rights for Americans, which he has unceasingly assaulted since taking the oath of office, he glided through more lies about “an America where children live free from fear” knowing that American children are growing up in terror of the government – especially the TSA, which ought to be abolished – including a four-year-old girl physically isolated, patted down and detained as a suspected terrorist in Kansas last week. It is monstrous that this president is our commander-in-chief; like his predecessor, he rejects the ethics of selfishness so he cannot credibly pretend to represent the nation’s self-interest, and when he refers to “a just and lasting peace” – the line on which he ended (bungling the words) – there is no doubt that the peace and justice he seeks is 100 percent antithetical to the United States of America. He proved again that he represents the nothing, the nil, and that he is taking us to our doom, with our precious American soldiers leading the way. Tonight, the nothing president Obama hustled another deception and expanded a war for nothing well into the new century, hastening the end of America, all the while calling it the opposite of what it is.
