Michael Steele Under Fire For Telling The Truth About Afghanistan

By Robert Paul Reyes


"Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele is facing a new test of his leadership over comments he made that appear to question America`s military effort in Afghanistan.

Video footage that emerged Friday shows Steele referring to the conflict as "a war of Obama`s choosing" and implying that the effort is doomed to fail.

`If he`s such a student of history,` Steele said, referring to President Obama, `has he not understood that, you know, that`s the one thing you don`t do, is engage in a land war in Afghanistan? Everyone who has tried, over 1,000 years of history, has failed.` Michael Memoli, Tribune Washington Bureau

Michael Steele, the Uncle Tomish Republican National Committee Chairman, has the gravitas of a balloon, and the charisma of a wilted head of cabbage.

It`s not often that I agree with the conservative stooge, but he`s right on the money in his assessment of Obama`s foreign policy in reference to the Afghanistan conflict.

Our sons and daughters are dying in vain in Afghanistan because Obama doesn`t have the courage to bring them home. Afghanistan is Obama`s war, he owns it lock, stock and barrel.

Our mission in Afghanistan is doomed to fail, the Afghans prefer bondage under Islam, to freedom under a democracy. There will never be anything that remotely resembles a democracy in that backwards nation.

I would only disagree with Steele referring to the bloody mess in Afghanistan as a "war", it`s an occupation, not a war. American troops are invaders and occupiers, and in a battle between the Taliban and the interests of Haliburton, who the hell do you root for?
