It Means We Finally Just Cut and Run

Obama Calls For ‘Responsible End’ to Afghanistan War and We Wonder What the Heck That Means

President Obama made a surprise trip to Afghanistan today. He was at the Bagram Air Force Base for just a couple of hours and said this:

For many of you, this will be your last tour in Afghanistan. America’s war in Afghanistan will come to a responsible end.

What exactly does this mean?

It means that he’s going to yank the troops out of Afghanistan a few weeks before the fall elections, to the accompaniment of hosannas from the DNC media for what a great statesman and Nobel peacemaker he is, in hopes of boosting the Democrat brand for November.

They’re working off a strategy that says the higher Obama’s approval rating is at the time of the election, the better Democrat candidates will do.  They’re desperate to keep the Senate, and if Valerie Jarrett told him to do so, he’d hand over every pre-pubescent female in Afghanistan to the Taliban for enforced clitorectomies and sulfuric acid face-washes.

Since we have no actual intention of using our military to destroy the threat of global Muslim terrorism, I’d just as soon not see our troops dying in futility is the asshole of the world.  But I’m not thrilled that the method of our exodus there will be calculated in doing as much damage as possible to our standing as the leader of the free world.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
