OBAMA BATTLES GENERALS ON THE ‘STAN

Wow, there’s a shock. His motivation? Politics, what else?

Barack Obama is set to reject the advice of the Pentagon by announcing on Wednesday night the withdrawal of up to 30,000 troops from Afghanistan by November next year, in time for the US presidential election.

The move comes despite warnings from his military commanders that recent security gains are fragile. They have been urging him to keep troop numbers high until 2013.

The accelerated drawdown will dismay American and British commanders in Kabul, who have privately expressed concern that the White House is now being driven by political rather than military imperatives. (LINK)

Silly generals, Barack Obama knows better than you. Now sit down and shut up.

    Perhaps he forgot about a little thing called Vietnam, where the decisions all became political. I say get about 95,000 of them out now or let them all stay and kick ass. This half way thing is likely a bad path.
